The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJohn 3:4
Nicodemus saith unto him…
Understanding him of a
natural birth, to be repeated:
how can a man be born when he is old?
as it seems by this, he
himself now was:
can he enter the second time into his mothers womb, and be born?
Ethiopic version adds, "again"; and the Arabic version, "and then be
born"; this he urges, as absurd, impracticable, and impossible; and
which shows him to have been as yet a natural man, who could not
receive nor discern spiritual things.
