Luke 11:44 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Tombs which appear not (τὰ μνημεῖα τὰ ἄδηλα)

Lit., the tombs, the unseen ones. The word ἄδηλος, unapparent, occurs only here and 1 Corinthians 14:8, of the trumpet giving an uncertain sound.

That walk over (περιπατοῦντες)

The participle, and without the article; and therefore better, as they walk; walk about (περί) on their daily business. In Matthew the sepulchres are whitened, that men may see them and avoid ceremonial defilement. Here they are not seen, and men walking on them are unconsciously defiled. See on Matthew 23:27.
