EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Matthew 26:57-75.
The particulars of these two sections require a combination of all the narratives, for which see on Joh 18:1-27.See Poole on "Luke 22:54"
and immediately while he yet spake: in this shocking manner, with his mouth full of oaths, curses, and imprecations:
the cock crew; the second time, Mark 14:72.And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Luke 22:60. ἄνθρωπε, etc., man, I don’t know what you are saying—under shelter of the epithet Γαλιλαῖος, pretending ignorance of what the man said—an evasion rather than a denial, with no cursing and protesting accompanying. A monstrous minimising of the offence, if Lk. had Mk.’s account before him, thinks J. Weiss; therefore he infers he had not, but drew from a Jewish-Christian source with a milder account. What if he had both before him, and preferred the milder?—ἐφώνησεν ἀλεκ., immediately after the cock crew; but in Lk.’s account the reaction is not brought about thereby. In the parallels, in which Peter appears worked up to a paroxysm, a reaction might be looked for at any moment on the slightest occasion, the crowing of the cock recalling Christ’s words abundantly sufficient. But in Lk. there is no paroxysm, therefore more is needed to bring about reaction, and more accordingly is mentioned.60. Man, I know not what thou sayest] St Luke drops a veil over the ‘cursing and swearing’ which accompanied this last denial (Matthew 26:74).
the cock crew] Rather, a cock. It crew for the second time. Minute critics have imagined that they found a ‘difficulty’ here because the Talmud says that cocks and hens, from their scratching in the dung, were regarded as unclean. But as to this the Talmud contradicts itself, since it often alludes to cocks and hens at Jerusalem (e.g. Berachdth, p. 27, 1). Moreover the cock might have belonged to the Roman soldiers in Fort Antonia.
