John 10:32 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Many good works have I showed you - I have healed your sick, delivered those of you who were possessed from the power of demons; I have fed multitudes of your poor, and I have taught you in all places, at all times, without expense, with patience; and is this my reward?

To show good works or good things is a Hebraism, which signifies to do them really, to give good things liberally. The phrase is similar to the following: Who will Show us any good? Psalm 4:6; i.e. who shall give us good things. Show us thy mercy, Psalm 85:7; i.e. give us to feel the effects of thy mercy. Thou hast Showed thy people hard things, Psalm 60:3; i.e. thou hast treated them with rigor. Thou hast Showed me great and sore troubles, Psalm 71:20; i.e. thou hast exposed me to terrible hardships.

1. We have heard the Lord Jesus setting forth to us the office of a good shepherd. And herein He hath doubtless given us to know, as we may understand it, that there are good shepherds. And yet that the multitude of shepherds might not be understood in a wrong sense; He saith, "I am the good Shepherd." [4124] And wherein He is the good Shepherd, He showeth in the words following; "The good Shepherd," saith He, "layeth down His life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd,
