Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 10:14

_ _ And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city — for possibly a whole town might not furnish one “worthy.”

_ _ shake off the dust of your feet — “for a testimony against them,” as Mark and Luke add (Mark 6:11; Luke 10:11). By this symbolical action they vividly shook themselves from all connection with such, and all responsibility for the guilt of rejecting them and their message. Such symbolical actions were common in ancient times, even among others than the Jews, as strikingly appears in Pilate (Matthew 27:24). And even to this day it prevails in the East.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 10:5-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 10:14

Shake off the dust from your feet — The Jews thought the land of Israel so peculiarly holy, that when they came home from any heathen country, they stopped at the borders and shook or wiped off the dust of it from their feet, that the holy land might not be polluted with it. Therefore the action here enjoined was a lively intimation, that those Jews who had rejected the Gospel were holy no longer, but were on a level with heathens and idolaters.
