Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 9:32

_ _ But they understood not that saying — “and it was hid from them, [so] that they preceived it not” (Luke 9:45).

_ _ and were afraid to ask him — Their most cherished ideas were so completely dashed by such announcements, that they were afraid of laying themselves open to rebuke by asking Him any questions. But “they were exceeding sorry” (Matthew 17:23). While the other Evangelists, as Webster and Wilkinson remark, notice their ignorance and their fear, Matthew, who was one of them, retains a vivid recollection of their sorrow.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 9:30-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 9:32

They understood not the word — They did not understand how to reconcile the death of our Saviour (nor consequently his resurrection, which supposed his death) with their notions of his temporal kingdom.
