CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled on the way, or your adversary may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.
