John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 22:16

The Herodians were a set of men peculiarly attached to Herod, and consequently zealous for the interest of the Roman government, which was the main support of the dignity and royalty of his family. Thou regardest not the person of men — Thou favourest no man for his riches or greatness.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 22:16

And they sent out unto him their disciples with the (g) Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God (h) in truth, neither carest thou for any [man]: for thou regardest not the (i) person of men.

(g) Those who with Herod made a new religion, composed of both heathen and Jewish religion.

(h) Truly and sincerely.

(i) You are not moved with any appearance and outward show.
