Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 4:5

_ _ Then the devil taketh him up — rather, “conducteth Him.”

_ _ into the holy city — so called (as in Isaiah 48:2; Nehemiah 11:1) from its being “the city of the Great King,” the seat of the temple, the metropolis of all Jewish worship.

_ _ and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple — rather, “the pinnacle” — a certain well-known projection. Whether this refers to the highest summit of the temple, which bristled with golden spikes [Josephus, Antiquities, 5.5, 6]; or whether it refers to another peak, on Herod’s royal portico, overhanging the ravine of Kedron, at the valley of Hinnom — an immense tower built on the very edge of this precipice, from the top of which dizzy height Josephus says one could not look to the bottom [Antiquities, 15.11, 5] — is not certain; but the latter is probably meant.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 4:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 4:5

The holy city — So Jerusalem was commonly called, being the place God had peculiarly chosen for himself. On the battlement of the temple — Probably over the king's gallery, which was of such a prodigious height, that no one could look down from the top of it without making himself giddy.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 4:5

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a (b) pinnacle of the temple,

(b) The battlement which encompassed the flat roof of the Temple so that no man might fall down: as was appointed by the law; (Deuteronomy 22:8).
