The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMatthew 27:8
Wherefore that field was called…
Not by the priests and
elders, but by the common people, who knew by what money it was
the field of blood;
or "Aceldama", which so signifies, as in
(Acts 1:19) , not called the field of the priests, the purchasers; nor
the field of the strangers, for whom it was bought; but the field of
blood, being purchased with that money, for which innocent blood was
betrayed; and this name it bore
unto this day;
in which Matthew wrote his Gospel, about eight years
after, as is thought. Jerom F24 says, that in his time this field
was shown on the south side of Mount Sion.
