EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)And when even was come.—Another note of time peculiar to St. Mark.
And his disciples heard it—and marked the saying. This is introduced as a connecting link, to explain what was afterwards to be said on the subject, as the narrative has to proceed to the other transactions of this day.

EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Mark 11:19. ὅταν (ὅτε, T.R.) implies repetition of the action. We have here ἄν with the indicative instead of the optative without ἄν as in the classics. Field (Ot. Nor.) regards ὅταν ὀψὲ ἐγένετο as a solecism due probably to Mk. himself (as in Mark 3:11, ὅταν ἐθεώρουν), and holds that the connection in Mk.’s narrative is decidedly in favour of a single action instead of, as in Lk., a daily practice.19. he went out] or rather, they went out, of the city, crossed the ridges of Olivet, and sought once more the retirement of Bethany.Ὅτε ὀψὲ ἐγένετο, when evening was come) Mark has given with peculiar and extraordinary distinctness, the description of these last walks of the Saviour.—Harm., p. 457.]Verse 19. - And when even was come; literally, and whenever (ὅταν) evening came; that is, every evening. During these last days before his crucifixion, he remained in Jerusalem during the day, and went back to Bethany at night. St. Matthew says (Matthew 21:17), speaking of one of these days, "And he left them, and went forth out of the city to Bethany, and lodged there." So true it was that "he came unto his own, and his own received him not." No one in that city, which he loved so well, offered to receive him. The end was drawing near. But the intercourse with Martha and Mary must have been soothing to him; and Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem.
Lit., whenever evening came on; not on the evening of the purging of the temple merely, but each day at evening.
