Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 21:34-37.


Luke 21:36

_ _ Watch ... pray, etc. — the two great duties which in prospect of trial are constantly enjoined. These warnings, suggested by the need of preparedness for the tremendous calamities approaching, and the total wreck of the existing state of things, are the general improvement of the whole discourse, carrying the mind forward to Judgment and Vengeance of another kind and on a grander and more awful scale — not ecclesiastical or political but personal, not temporal but eternal — when all safety and blessedness will be found to lie in being able to “STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN” in the glory of His personal appearing.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 21:29-38.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 21:36

Watch ye therefore — This is the general conclusion of all that precedes. That ye may be counted worthy — This word sometimes signifies an honour conferred on a person, as when the apostles are said to be counted worthy to suffer shame for Christ, Acts 5:41. Sometimes meet or becoming: as when John the Baptist exhorts, to bring fruits worthy of repentance, Luke 3:8. And so to be counted worthy to escape, is to have the honour of it, and to be fitted or prepared for it. To stand — With joy and triumph: not to fall before him as his enemies.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 21:36

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to (i) stand before the Son of man.

(i) You will appear before him in a condition such that you will abide the presence and sentence of the Judge without fear.
