CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
With great pomp - Μετα πολλης φαντασιας; With much phantasy, great splendor, great parade, superb attendance or splendid retinue: in this sense the Greek word is used by the best writers.

These grandees wished to hear the man speak of his religion, and in his own defense, through a principle of curiosity.

The crowd listened to Paul until he said this. Then they raised their voices and shouted, "Rid the earth of him! He's not fit to live!"
