Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 4:11

_ _ Then the devil leaveth him — Luke says, “And when the devil had exhausted” — or “quite ended,” as in Luke 4:2 — “every (mode of) temptation, he departed from him till a season.” The definite “season” here indicated is expressly referred to by our Lord in John 14:30 and Luke 22:52, Luke 22:53.

_ _ and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him — or supplied Him with food, as the same expression means in Mark 1:31 and Luke 8:3. Thus did angels to Elijah (1 Kings 19:5-8). Excellent critics think that they ministered, not food only, but supernatural support and cheer also. But this would be the natural effect rather than the direct object of the visit, which was plainly what we have expressed. And after having refused to claim the illegitimate ministration of angels in His behalf, oh, with what deep joy would He accept their services when sent, unasked, at the close of all this temptation, direct from Him whom He had so gloriously honored! What “angels’ food” would this repast be to Him! and as He partook of it, might not a Voice from heaven be heard again, by any who could read the Father’s mind, “Said I not well, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased?”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 4:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 4:11

Angels came and waited upon him — Both to supply him with food, and to congratulate his victory.
