Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 22:7

_ _ But when the king — the Great God, who is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

_ _ heard thereof, he was wroth — at the affront put both on His Son, and on Himself who had deigned to invite them.

_ _ and he sent forth his armies — The Romans are here styled God’s armies, just as the Assyrian is styled “the rod of His anger” (Isaiah 10:5), as being the executors of His judicial vengeance.

_ _ and destroyed those murderers — and in what vast numbers did they do it!

_ _ and burned up their city — Ah! Jerusalem, once “the city of the Great King” (Psalms 48:2), and even up almost to this time (Matthew 5:35); but now it is “their city” — just as our Lord, a day or two after this, said of the temple, where God had so long dwelt, “Behold your house is left unto you desolate” (Matthew 23:38)! Compare Luke 19:43, Luke 19:44.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
