CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Debtors, οφειλεται, a Jewish phrase for sinners. Persons professing to be under the law are bound by the law to be obedient to all its precepts; those who obey not are reckoned debtors to the law, or rather to that Divine justice from which the law came. A different word is used when speaking of the Galileans: they are termed ἁμαρτωλοι, as this word is often used to signify heathens; see the notes on Luke 7:37; it is probably used here in nearly a similar sense. "Do ye who live in Jerusalem, and who consider your selves peculiarly attached to the law, and under the strongest obligations to obey it - do ye think that those Galileans were more heathenish than the rest of the Galileans, because they suffered such things? No. It was not on this account that they perished: both these cases exhibit a specimen of the manner in which ye shall all perish, if ye do not speedily repent, and turn to God."

Christ's Message to Herod
The Strait Gate. Warned against Herod.
At the Feast of the Dedication of the Temple.
The Fountain Gate was repaired by Shallun son of Kol-Hozeh, ruler of the district of Mizpah. He rebuilt it, roofing it over and putting its doors and bolts and bars in place. He also repaired the wall of the Pool of Siloam, by the King's Garden, as far as the steps going down from the City of David.
"Because this people has rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah and rejoices over Rezin and the son of Remaliah,
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.'"
I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.
I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
"Go," he told him, "wash in the Pool of Siloam" (this word means "Sent"). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.
