Verse 31. Matt. xx, 17; Mark x, 32.
34. They understood none of these things - The literal meaning they could not but understand. But as they could not reconcile this to their preconceived opinion of the Messiah, they were utterly at a loss in what parabolical or figurative sense to take what he said concerning his sufferings; having their thoughts still taken up with the temporal kingdom.
Verse 35. Matt. xx, 29; Mark x, 46.
