    VERSE (15) -
    1Sa 1:15

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:15

    Porque stos no estn borrachos, como vosotros pensis, siendo la hora tercia del día;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 2:15

    Verse 15. But the
    third hour of the day] That is, about nine o'clock in the morning, previously to which the Jews scarcely ever ate or drank, for that hour was the hour of prayer. This custom appears to have been so common that even the most intemperate among the Jews were not known to transgress it; Peter therefore spoke with confidence when he said, these are not drunken-seeing it is but the third hour of the day, previously to which even the intemperate did not use wine.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. For these are not
    drunken , etc.] Meaning not only the eleven apostles, but the rest of the hundred and twenty, on whom also the Spirit was poured forth, and who were endowed with his extraordinary gifts: as ye suppose ; and had given out that they were: and this shows the sense of being filled with new wine; that they meant that they were really drunk, and which they believed, or at least would have had others believe it; the unreasonableness of which supposition and suggestion the apostle argues from the time of day: seeing it is but the third hour of the day ; or nine of the clock in the morning: for till this time it was not usual with the Jews, if men of any sobriety or religion, so much as to taste anything: the rules are these f104 , it is forbidden a man to taste anything, or do any work after break of day, until he has prayed the morning prayer.

    Now the morning prayer, the precept concerning it is, that a man should begin to pray as soon as the sun shines out; and its time is until the end of the fourth hour, which is the third part of the day f105 .

    So that a man might not taste anything, either of eatables or drinkables, until the fourth hour, or ten oclock in the morning: hence it is said f106 , that after they offered the daily sacrifice they ate bread, y[ [bra mzb , at the time of four hours: or on the fourth hour, and sooner than this it was not lawful to eat, even ever so little; and whoever did, was not reckoned fit to be conversed with. Says R. Isaac f107 , whoever eats a green or herb before the fourth hour, it is forbidden to converse with him; and the same says, it is unlawful to eat a raw herb before the fourth hour. Amemar, and Mar Zutra, and Rab Ashe were sitting, and they brought before them a raw herb before the fourth hour. Amemar and Rab Ashe ate, and Mar Zutra did not eat: they said to him, what is thy meaning? (he replied) that R. Isaac said, whoever eats a herb before the fourth hour, it is forbidden to converse with him.

    The time for taking food by persons of different characters, is thus expressed by them: the first hour is the time of eating for the Lydians, the second for thieves, the third for heirs, the fourth for labourers, the fifth for every man; is it not so? Saith R. Papa, the fourth is the time of repast for every man; but (the truth is) the fourth is the time of eating for every man, the fifth for labourers, and the sixth for the disciples of the wise men f108 .

    Hence that advice f109 , at the fourth hour, go into a cooks shop, (or tavern,) if thou seest a man drinking wine, and holding the cup in his hands, and slumbering, inquire about him, if he is one of the wise doctors, etc.

    The gloss upon it is, at the fourth hour, for that is the time of eating, when all go into the shops (or taverns) to eat.

    Now whereas they that are drunken are drunken in the night, and not in the day, and much less so soon in the day, when it was not usual, at least with religious men, to have tasted anything by this time; and whereas the apostles, and their company, were sober and religious men, and had never done thing to forfeit their character, it was unreasonable to suppose anything of this kind in them.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-21 - Peter's sermon shows that he was thoroughly recovered from his fall and thoroughly restored to the Divine favour; for he who had denie Christ, now boldly confessed him. His account of the miraculous pourin forth of the Spirit, was designed to awaken the hearers to embrace the faith of Christ, and to join themselves to his church. It was the fulfilling the Scripture, and the fruit of Christ's resurrection an ascension, and proof of both. Though Peter was filled with the Holy Ghost, and spake with tongues as the Spirit gave him utterance, yet he did not think to set aside the Scriptures. Christ's scholars neve learn above their Bible; and the Spirit is given, not to do away the Scriptures, but to enable us to understand, approve, and obey them Assuredly none will escape the condemnation of the great day, excep those who call upon the name of the Lord, in and through his Son Jesu Christ, as the Saviour of sinners, and the Judge of all mankind.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15.
    Third hour. Nine in the morning: the hour of morning prayer.

    Compare 1 Thess. v. 7.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:15 {As ye suppose} (hws humeis hupolambanete). Note use of humeis (ye) for decided emphasis. {The third hour} (hwra trite). Three o'clock in the day Jewish time, nine Roman. Drunkenness belongs to the night (#1Th 5:7). It was a quick, common sense reply, and complete answer to their suspicion.
