Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 8:10

And he said, Unto you it is given to know the (a) mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

(a) Those things are called secret which may not be uttered: for the word used here is equivalent to our saying, "to hold a man's peace".
