Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 12:4-5

_ _ I say, etc. — You will say, That may cost us our life. Be it so; but, “My friends, there their power ends.” He calls them “my friends” here, not in any loose sense, but, as we think, from the feeling He then had that in this “killing of the body” He and they were going to be affectingly one with each other.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 12:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 12:4

But I say to you, Fear not — Let not the fear of man make you act the hypocrite, or conceal any thing which I have commissioned you to publish.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 12:4

(2) And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

(2) Although hypocrites have princes to execute their cruelty, yet there is no reason why we should be afraid of them, even by the smallest amount that may be, seeing that they can do nothing except that which pleases God, and God does not will anything that may be against the salvation of his elect.
