The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLuke 18:32
For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles…
was by the chief priests, Scribes, and elders, to Pilate, the Roman
governor, and by him to the soldiers:
and shall be mocked;
as he was by the latter, when they crowned
him with thorns, arrayed him in a purple robe, and put a reed into
his hand, and bowed the knee to him, saying, hail king of the Jews;
and likewise by the Jews when he hung upon the cross:
and spitefully entreated.
The Syriac and Persic versions leave
out this clause here, and read it the next verse. It may regard the
injuries done him, the abuses and affronts he received, both by words
and spitted on;
as he was both by officers in the high priest's
palace, and by the Roman soldiers in Pilate's hall; see (Isaiah 50:6) .
