John 8:48 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Say we not well

Indicating a current reproach. Well (καλῶς) is literally, finely, beautifully. Sometimes ironical, as Mark 7:6.

Thou art a Samaritan (Σαμαρείτης εἶ σὺ)

Literally, a Samaritan art thou: the σὺ, thou, terminating the sentence with a bitter emphasis: thou who professest such reverence for God and His law, art only a Samaritan, hostile to the true law and kingdom of God.
