Matthew 16:23 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Turned (στραφεὶς)

Not toward Peter, but away from him.

Get thee behind me

See Matthew 4:10.

Offence (σκάνδαλον)

Rev., better, stumbling-block. See on Matthew 5:29. Not, thou art offensive, but thou art in my way. Dr. Morison, "Thou art not, as before, a noble block, lying in its right position as a massive foundation-stone. On the contrary, thou art like a stone quite out of its proper place, and lying right across the road in which I must go - lying as a stone of stumbling."

Savourest not (οὐ φρονεῖς)

Rev., better, mindest not. Thy thoughts and intents are not of God, but of men. Savourest follows the Vulgate sapis, from sapere, which means 1st, to have a taste or flavor of: 2d, to have sense or discernment. Hence used here as the rendering of φρονεῖν, to be minded. Thus Wyc., 1 Corinthians 13:11, "When I was a child I savoured (ἐφρόνουν) as a child." The idea is, strictly, to partake of the quality or nature of.
