Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 10:19

_ _ Behold, I give you, etc. — not for any renewal of their mission, though probably many of them afterwards became ministers of Christ; but simply as disciples.

_ _ serpents and scorpions — the latter more venomous than the former: literally, in the first instance (Mark 16:17, Mark 16:18; Acts 28:5); but the next words, “and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you,” show that the glorious power of faith to “overcome the world” and “quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one,” by the communication and maintenance of which to His people He makes them innocuous, is what is meant (1 John 5:4; Ephesians 6:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 10:17-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 10:19

I give you power — That is, I continue it to you: and nothing shall hurt you — Neither the power, nor the subtilty of Satan.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 10:19

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means (g) hurt you.
