Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMatthew 20:22
- Ye know not what ye ask (ouk oidate ti aiteiste).
- How often that is true. Aiteiste is indirect middle voice, "ask for yourselves," "a selfish request."
- We are able (dunameta).
- Amazing proof of their ignorance and self-confidence. Ambition had blinded their eyes. They had not caught the martyr spirit.
