Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Declare plainly (ἐμφαμίζουσιν)

oP. See on John 14:21. Occasionally in lxx. Rend. "make it manifest."

They seek a country (πατρίδα ἐπιζητοῦσιν)

The verb is found in lxx, chiefly in the sense of seeking after God or another deity. See 2 Kings 1:3, 2 Kings 1:6; 2 Kings 3:11; 2 Kings 8:8; 2 Kings 22:18; 2 Chronicles 18:6. Comp. ἐπιζητουμένη πόλις a city sought after (Zion), Isaiah 62:12. Πατρίς is a native country; a fatherland. Only here and in Gospels and Acts. Quite often in lxx.
