EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
(11) Be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.—There is something very solemnly impressive in the fact that this is the message to be uttered alike to the believing and the unbelieving. Now, as of old, the prophets of the Lord had to utter their proclamation, whether men would hear or whether they would forbear (Ezekiel 2:7).

10:1-16 Christ sent the seventy disciples, two and two, that they might strengthen and encourage one another. The ministry of the gospel calls men to receive Christ as a Prince and a Saviour; and he will surely come in the power of his Spirit to all places whither he sends his faithful servants. But the doom of those who receive the grace of God in vain, will be very fearful Those who despise the faithful ministers of Christ, who think meanly of them, and look scornfully upon them, will be reckoned as despisers of God and Christ.See the notes at Matthew 10:14-15. 10. son of peace—inwardly prepared to embrace your message of peace. See note on "worthy," (see on [1626]Mt 10:13). See Poole on "Luke 10:8"

Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us,.... The Syriac version adds, "to our feet"; and so in Beza's most ancient copy, and the Arabic and Persic versions read, "which cleaves to our feet"; which agrees with Matthew 10:14.

we do wipe against you: for a testimony against them, that they had been with them, and were rejected by them; See Gill on Matthew 10:14, Mark 6:11.

notwithstanding be ye sure of this; they might assure themselves of this, and which will be an aggravation of their guilt, and increase their punishment another day:

that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you; was at their very doors, since the ministers of it, of the Gospel dispensation, the harbingers of the Messiah, who were sent to publish his Gospel, to proclaim him as king, and de clare that his kingdom was at hand, had been with them, and they had despised them.

Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Luke 10:11. Πλὴν τοῦτο γινώσκετε, ὅτι ἤγγικεν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ Θεοῦ) The messengers at first said ἤγγικεν ἐφʼ ὑμᾶς, κ.τ.λ., Luke 10:9; then to those who proved to be contumacious they used a more general mode of expression (omitting the words ἐφʼ ὑμᾶς), ἤγγικεν, κ.τ.λ.: however many have supplied the omitted words even in Luke 10:11.[93]

[93] BDLbcd Vulg. omit ἐφʼ ὑμᾶς in Luke 10:11. A, as Rec. Text, supports the words.—ED. and TRANSL.
