Matthew 26:50 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Wherefore art thou come ? (ἐφ' o pa/rei)

The interrogation of the A. V. is wrong. The expression is elliptical and condensed. Literally it is, that for which thou art here; and the mind is to supply do or be about. The Lord spurns the traitor's embrace, and says, in effect, "Enough of this hypocritical fawning. Do what you are here to do." So Rev., Do that for which thou art come.
