    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:22

    Respondi Pilato: Lo que he escrito, he escrito.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 19:22

    Verse 22. What I have written, I have written.] That is, I will not alter what I have written. The
    Roman laws forbad the sentence to be altered when once pronounced; and as this inscription was considered as the sentence pronounced against our Lord, therefore, it could not be changed: but this form of speech is common in the Jewish writings, and means simply, what is done shall continue. Pilate seems to speak prophetically.

    This is the king of the Jews: they shall have no other Messiah for ever.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. Pilate answered, what I have written I have written , etc.] He seems to say this, as one angry and displeased with them; either because they would not consent to release Jesus, which he was desirous of, but pressed him so very hard to crucify him; or at their insolence, in directing him in what form to put the superscription, which he determines shall stand unaltered, as he had wrote it. This he said, either because he could not alter it after it was written, for it is said f724 , that a proconsuls table is his sentence, which being once read, not one letter can either be increased or diminished; but as it is recited, so it is related in the instrument of the province; or if he could have altered it, he was not suffered by God to do it; but was so directed, and over ruled by divine providence, as to write, so to persist in, and abide by what he had wrote inviolably; which is the sense of his words. Dr. Lightfoot has given several instances out of the Talmud, showing that this is a common way of speaking with the Rabbins; and that words thus doubled signify that what is spoken of stands good, and is irrevocable: so a widow taking any of the moveable goods of her husband deceased for her maintenance, it is said f725 , hspt hspt hm , what she takes, she takes; that is, she may lawfully do it, and retain it: it continues in her hands, and cannot be taken away from her; and so the gloss explains it, they do not take it from her; and in the same way Maimonides f726 interprets it: so of a man that binds himself to offer an oblation one way, and he offers it another way, aybh aybh hm , what he has offered, he has offered f727 ; what he has offered is right, it stands good, and is not to be rejected: and again, among the rites used by a deceased brothers wife, towards him that refuses to marry her, if one thing is done before the other, it matters not, yw[ yw[ hm , what is done, is done f728 ; and is not to be undone, or done over again in another way; it stands firm and good, and not to be objected to: and the same writer observes, that this is a sort of prophecy of Pilate, and which should continue, and for ever obtain, that the Jews should have no other King Messiah than Jesus of Nazareth; nor have they had any other; all that have risen up have proved false Messiahs; nor will they have any other; nor indeed any king, until they seek the Lord their God, and David their king, ( Hosea 3:5) that is, the son of David, as they will do in the latter day; when they shall be converted, and when they shall own him as their king, their ancestors at this time were ashamed of.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 19-30 - Here are some remarkable circumstances of
    Jesus' death, more full related than before. Pilate would not gratify the chief priests by allowing the writing to be altered; which was doubtless owing to secret power of God upon his heart, that this statement of our Lord' character and authority might continue. Many things done by the Roma soldiers were fulfilments of the prophecies of the Old Testament. All things therein written shall be fulfilled. Christ tenderly provided for his mother at his death. Sometimes, when God removes one comfort from us, he raises up another for us, where we looked not for it. Christ' example teaches all men to honour their parents in life and death; to provide for their wants, and to promote their comfort by every means in their power. Especially observe the dying word wherewith Jesus breathe out his soul. It is finished; that is, the counsels of the Fathe concerning his sufferings were now fulfilled. It is finished; all the types and prophecies of the Old Testament, which pointed at the sufferings of the Messiah, were accomplished. It is finished; the ceremonial law is abolished; the substance is now come, and all the shadows are done away. It is finished; an end is made of transgressio by bringing in an everlasting righteousness. His sufferings were no finished, both those of his soul, and those of his body. It is finished; the work of man's redemption and salvation is now completed His life was not taken from him by force, but freely given up.
