(23) They were exceeding sorry.--St. Mark (Mark 9:32) and St. Luke (Luke 9:45) add that "they understood not the saying; it was hid from them, that they should not perceive it;" and that "they were afraid to ask Him." Their sorrow was vague and dim, and they shrank from that which might make it more definite.

Verse 23. - Shall be raised again (ἐγερθήσεται); be wakened. This was always a subject of perplexity; and indeed, according to the other synoptists, "they understood not the saying; it was hid from them, and they perceived it not, and were afraid to ask him." Were exceeding sorry. They no longer rebuke him, as Peter had done (Matthew 16:22), or try to divert him from his purpose; they begin to realize the position, and to anticipate with poignant sorrow the overthrow of their hopes.
