CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
An assault made - Greek: a "rush" - ὁρμή hormē. It denotes "an impetuous excitement and aggression; a rush to put them to death." It rather describes a popular tumult than a calm and deliberate purpose. There was a violent, tumultuous excitement.
Both of the Gentiles ... - Of that part of them which was opposed to the apostles.
To use them despitefully - See the notes on Matthew 5:44. To reproach them; to bring contempt upon them; to injure them.
