(10) Two men stood by them in white apparel.--Better, were standing, the appearance being sudden, and their approach unnoticed. The forms were such as those as had been seen at the portals of the empty sepulchre, bright and fair to look upon, and clad in white garments, like the young priests in the Temple. (See Note on Luke 1:12.)

Verse 10. - Were looking for looked, A.V. ; into for toward, A.V.; went for went up, A.V. Two men. St. Luke describes them according to their appearance. They were really angels. In like manner, in Joshua 5:13 we read, "There stood a man over against him;" and in Genesis 18:2, 16; Genesis 19:10, 12, 16, we read of "the men;" and in Judges 13:6, 8, 10, 11, of "the man of God;" the persons spoken of in all these cases being angels (comp. Daniel 3:25; Daniel 8:15, 16; Daniel 9:21, etc.; Zechariah 1:8, 10; Mark 16:5; Luke 24:4). Gabriel, too, means "man of God." In white apparel, typical of perfect holiness, and of the glory which belongs to the inhabitants of heaven (comp. Daniel 10:5, 6; Matthew 17:2; Matthew 28:3; Mark 9:3; Mark 16:5; Luke 24:4; Revelation 7:9, 13; Revelation 3:5, 18; Revelation 4:4; Revelation 6:11; Revelation 19:8, etc.). 1:6-11 They were earnest in asking about that which their Master never had directed or encouraged them to seek. Our Lord knew that his ascension and the teaching of the Holy Spirit would soon end these expectations, and therefore only gave them a rebuke; but it is a caution to his church in all ages, to take heed of a desire of forbidden knowledge. He had given his disciples instructions for the discharge of their duty, both before his death and since his resurrection, and this knowledge is enough for a Christian. It is enough that He has engaged to give believers strength equal to their trials and services; that under the influence of the Holy Spirit they may, in one way or other, be witnesses for Christ on earth, while in heaven he manages their concerns with perfect wisdom, truth, and love. When we stand gazing and trifling, the thoughts of our Master's second coming should quicken and awaken us: when we stand gazing and trembling, they should comfort and encourage us. May our expectation of it be stedfast and joyful, giving diligence to be found of him blameless.
