Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 7:29-30

_ _ And all the people that heard — “on hearing (this).” These are the observations of the Evangelist, not of our Lord.

_ _ and the publicans — a striking clause.

_ _ justified God, being baptized, etc. — rather, “having been baptized.” The meaning is, They acknowledged the divine wisdom of such a preparatory ministry as John’s, in leading them to Him who now spake to them (see Luke 1:16, Luke 1:17); whereas the Pharisees and lawyers, true to themselves in refusing the baptism of John, set at naught also the merciful design of God in the Savior Himself, to their own destruction.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 7:19-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 7:29

And all the people — Our Lord continues his discourse: justified God — Owned his wisdom and mercy in thus calling them to repentance, and preparing them for Him that was to come.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
