The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMark 14:6
And Jesus said, let her alone…
Jesus knowing the secret
indignation of some of his disciples, and their private murmurings
at the woman, and their continual teasings of her, because of the
expense of the ointment, said to them, as the Arabic and Ethiopic
versions read; or "to the disciples", as the Persic, let the woman
alone, cease to chide and reprove her for what she has done;
why trouble ye her?
why do you grieve her, by charging her with
imprudence and extravagance, as if she had been guilty of a very
great crime? she is so far from it, that
she hath wrought a good work on me;
she has done me an honour;
expressed faith in me, and shown love to me, and ought to be
commended, and not reproved; (See Gill on 26:10).
