Acts 6:13 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Against this holy place - The temple, that it shall be destroyed.

And the law - That it cannot give life, nor save from death. It is very likely that they had heard him speak words to this amount, which were all as true as the spirit from which they proceeded; but they gave them a very false colouring, as we see in the succeeding verse.
