Treasury of Scripture

If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the weak man, by what means he is made whole;

the good.

Acts 3:7

John 7:23
If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?

John 10:32
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?









(9) If we this day be examined.--The word is employed in its technical sense of a judicial inter rogation, as in Luke 23:14. It is used by St. Luke and St. Paul (Acts 12:19; Acts 24:8; 1Corinthians 2:14-15; 1Corinthians 4:3-4), and by them only, in the New Testament.

Of the good deed.--Strictly, the act of beneficence. There is a manifest emphasis on the word as contrasted with the contemptuous "this thing" of the question. It meets us again in 1Timothy 6:2. . . .

Verse 9. - Are for be, A.V.; concerning a (good deed) for of the, A.V.; an (impotent) for the, A.V.; this man for he, A.V. We; eraphatic, probably in response to the emphatic "you" at the end of ver. 7. An impotent man. The following οῦτος, this man, makes it necessary to supply the definite article, as the A.V. has done. St. Peter alludes to the good deed, i.e. the benefit done to the lame man, being the subject of a criminal inquiry, as a tacit condemnation of the unrighteousness of such a course.
