(30) Before the cock crow twice.--The word "twice" is omitted in many MSS. It agrees, however, with the emphatic mention of the cock crowing a "second time" in Mark 14:72, and with the form of the prediction in the same verse, and may fairly be regarded as the true reading, the omission in some MSS. being accidental.

Verse 30. - Verily I say unto thee, that thou to-day, even this night, before the cock crow twice, shalt deny me thrice. The day had begun. It began at six in the evening. It was already advanced. This second crowing of the cock is mentioned by St. Mark only; and it forms an additional aggravation of Peter's sin. The "cockcrowing" was a term used for one of the divisions of the night (see Mark 13:35). But it appears that there were three times at which the cock-crowing might be expected - namely,

(1) early in the night, between eleven and twelve;

(2) between one and two; and

(3) between five and six. . . .
