Treasury of Scripture

Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, you ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.

ye ought.

Acts 5:35-39
And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men…

Proverbs 14:29
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.

Proverbs 25:8
Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.









(36) Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against . . .--The language of the town-clerk has the ring of an official acceptance of the established cultus rather than of any strong personal devotion. Such language has often been heard from the defenders of institutions which were almost on the verge of ruin.

Ye ought to be quiet.--The verb is the same as that of the transitive "appeased" in Acts 19:35. In the exhortation "to do nothing rashly" we hear the voico of a worldly prudence, reminding us partly, as has been said, of Gamaliel, partly of the well-known maxim of Talleyrand, Surtout, point de zele.

Verse 36. - Gainsaid for spoken against, A.V.; rash for rashly, A.V. (προπετῶς is the adverb), quiet (κατεσταλμένους: see above, ver. 35, note).
