Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 27:6

_ _ And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury — “the Corban,” or chest containing the money dedicated to sacred purposes (see on Matthew 15:5).

_ _ because it is the price of blood — How scrupulous now! But those punctilious scruples made them unconsciously fulfil the Scripture.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 27:1-10.

It is not:

Matthew 23:24 [Ye] blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
Luke 6:7-9 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. ... Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy [it]?
John 18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

to put:

Deuteronomy 23:18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.
Isaiah 61:8 For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

because:
The Jews considered it was strictly forbidden by the Divine law to bring any filthy or iniquitous gain into the temple. For this reason they now refused to allow this money to be placed in the chest in the temple, amongst the former contributions for its repairs. In this, they were right enough, but by the very act of refusing this money, they proved themselves to be gross perverters of the spirit of God's requirements. They saw not that it was much less lawful for them, who had hired Judas to this sordid action, to be employed in the service of the temple. Those that "bear the vessels of the Lord," ought to be holy. Thus our Lord's words, "Ye blind guides! ye strain at a gnat and swallow a camel."
