The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMark 10:26
And they were astonished out of measure…
still more amazed, their surprise increased exceedingly upon our
Lord's using the above comparison; which, in their apprehension,
showed, that it was utterly impossible for a rich man to enter into
the kingdom of God; and they expressed their astonishment,
saying, among themselves, who then can be saved?
in the Messiah's
kingdom, if rich men are not? (See Gill on 19:25). The Persic
version renders it, "how can this man be saved?" as if the words had
a particular respect to the young man, that had great possessions,
and was gone away sorrowful.
