Luke 23:23 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

They were instant (ἐπέκειντο)

Instant, in the sense of urgent, pressing. See on Luke 7:4. Compare Romans 12:12; 2 Timothy 4:2; Luke 7:4; Acts 26:7. The verb means to lie upon, and answers to our vulgarism, to lay one's self down to work. Compare Aristophanes, "Knights," 253: κἀπικείμενος βόα, roar with all your might. Lit., roar, lying down to it.

Their voices

Omit of the chief priests.

Prevailed (καίσχυον)

Had power (ἰσχύς) to bear down (κατά) the remonstrances of Pilate. Only here and Matthew 16:18.
