Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 16:28

_ _ Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here — “some of those standing here.”

_ _ which shall not taste of death, fill they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom — or, as in Mark (Mark 9:1), “till they see the kingdom of God come with power”; or, as in Luke (Luke 9:27), more simply still, “till they see the kingdom of God.” The reference, beyond doubt, is to the firm establishment and victorious progress, in the lifetime of some then present, of that new kingdom of Christ, which was destined to work the greatest of all changes on this earth, and be the grand pledge of His final coming in glory.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 16:24-28.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 16:28

Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his (x) kingdom.

(x) By his kingdom is understood the glory of his ascension, and what follows after that, (Ephesians 4:10), or the preaching of the gospel, (Mark 9:1).
