    Hearing ye shall hear, &c.] See the notes on Matthew xiii. 14, and John xii. 39, 40.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. Saying, go unto this people, and say , etc.] A message sent in
    wrath and judgment to the people of Israel, rejected from being the people of God, a lo ammi being written upon them; and therefore God does not call them his, but this people: and this message was sent by an evangelical prophet, who foretold, in the clearest manner, the Messiahs incarnation, and birth of a virgin, the work he was to do, the sufferings he should undergo, and the glory that should follow; and that after he had seen in a vision the glory of the King Messiah, the perfections of deity filling the temple of his human nature, him exalted on a throne, and attended and worshipped by angels; after he had had such a view of his beauty and excellency, that laid him low in his own sight, and humbled him under a sense of his own impurity and unworthiness; and after he had had a comfortable discovery and application of pardoning grace; and after he had expressed such a readiness and willingness to go on the Lords errand: which one might have thought would have been of a different nature; and that he would have been sent, and have been made useful, to set forth the glories and excellencies of Christs person, office, and grace, he had had such a view of; and to preach the comfortable doctrine of pardoning grace to men, which he had just now such a gracious experience of; but on the contrary, he is bid to say, hearing ye shall hear ; with bodily ears, the Gospel preached by the Messiah and his apostles: and shall not understand , spiritually and experimentally, what they heard: to have an opportunity of hearing the Gospel, is a great blessing; seeing it is good news, glad tidings of good things, a joyful sound, and the voice of Christ himself; it is a distinguishing favour, and what all men at all times have not; when it is attended with a divine energy, the Spirit of God is received through it, regeneration, quickening and sanctifying grace are by it; faith comes by hearing it, and Christ is found under the ministration of it; and, generally speaking, the understanding and knowledge of divine things, are by means of it: men are naturally without the understanding of spiritual things, and where the Gospel is not, they remain so; the ministers of the Gospel, and the word preached by them, are the means of leading men into a spiritual understanding of things, though only as, and when attended with the Spirit of God, who is a Spirit of wisdom and revelation, in the knowledge of Christ: and a special mercy it is when persons, whilst hearing the word, understand what they hear, and can distinguish truth from error; and approve of the truth, receive the love of it, feel the power, and taste the sweetness of it; find it and eat it, believe, embrace, and profess it, and bring forth fruits worthy of it: but on the contrary, when it is heard and not understood, it is an awful dispensation; for hence either they content themselves with bare hearing, and depend upon it for salvation; or they despise and speak evil of what they do not understand; and so their hearing, instead of being a blessing, is an aggravation of their condemnation: and seeing ye shall see : miracles wrought: and not perceive ; them to be proofs of the things, for which they are wrought: so Jarchi expounds those words, ye shall see the wonders, or miracles I have done for you, and shall not set your hearts to know me from whence it appears that the Gospel preached in the clearest and most powerful manner, and even miracles wrought in confirmation of it, are insufficient for conversion; and nothing will effect it, but efficacious grace.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-31 -
    Paul persuaded the Jews concerning Jesus. Some were wrought upon by the word, and others hardened; some received the light, and others shu their eyes against it. And the same has always been the effect of the gospel. Paul parted with them, observing that the Holy Ghost had wel described their state. Let all that hear the gospel, and do not hee it, tremble at their doom; for who shall heal them, if God does not The Jews had afterwards much reasoning among themselves. Many have great reasoning, who do not reason aright. They find fault with on another's opinions, yet will not yield to truth. Nor will men' reasoning among themselves convince them, without the grace of God to open their understandings. While we mourn on account of such despisers we should rejoice that the salvation of God is sent to others, who wil receive it; and if we are of that number, we should be thankful to Hi who hath made us to differ. The apostle kept to his principle, to know and preach nothing but Christ and him crucified. Christians, when tempted from their main business, should bring themselves back with this question, What does this concern the Lord Jesus? What tendency ha it to bring us to him, and to keep us walking in him? The apostl preached not himself, but Christ, and he was not ashamed of the gospe of Christ. Though Paul was placed in a very narrow opportunity for being useful, he was not disturbed in it. Though it was not a wide doo that was opened to him, yet no man was suffered to shut it; and to man it was an effectual door, so that there were saints even in Nero' household, Php 4:22. We learn also from Php 1:13, how God overrule Paul's imprisonment for the furtherance of the gospel. And not the residents at Rome only, but all the church of Christ, to the presen day, and in the most remote corner of the globe, have abundant reaso to bless God, that during the most mature period of his Christian lif and experience, he was detained a prisoner. It was from his prison probably chained hand to hand to the soldier who kept him, that the apostle wrote the epistles to the Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Hebrews; epistles showing, perhaps more than any others, the Christian love with which his heart overflowed, and the Christia experience with which his soul was filled. The believer of the presen time may have less of triumph, and less of heavenly joy, than the apostle, but every follower of the same Saviour, is equally sure of safety and peace at the last. Let us seek to live more and more in the love of the Saviour; to labour to glorify Him by every action of ou lives; and we shall assuredly, by his strength, be among the number of those who now overcome our enemies; and by his free grace and mercy, be hereafter among the blessed company who shall sit with Him upon his throne, even as He also has overcome, and is sitting on his Father' throne, at God's right hand for evermore __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    28:26 {Say} (eipon). Second aorist
    active imperative instead of the old form eipe. The quotation is from #Isa 6:9,10. this very passage is quoted by Jesus (#Mt 13:14,15; Mr 4:12; Lu 8:10) in explanation of his use of parables and in #Joh 12:40 the very point made by Paul here, "the disbelief of the Jews in Jesus" (Page). See on Matthew for discussion of the language used. Here the first time ("go to this people and say") does not occur in Matthew. It is a solemn dirge of the doom of the Jews for their rejection of the Messiah foreseen so long ago by Isaiah.
