John 15:25 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Written in their law - See on John 10:34 (note). These words are taken from Psalm 69:4. This psalm is applied to Christ, John 2:17; John 19:28; to the vengeance of God against Judea, Acts 1:20. The psalm seems entirely prophetic of Christ. His deep abasement is referred to, Psalm 69:2-5; his prayer for his disciples and followers, Psalm 69:6; that for himself, in the garden of Gethsemane, Psalm 69:15-19; his crucifixion, Psalm 69:20-22; the vengeance of God against the Jews, from Psalm 69:23-29; the glorious manner in which he gets out of all his sufferings, Psalm 69:30; the abolition of the Mosaic rites and ceremonies, Psalm 69:31, compared with Isaiah 66:3; and, finally, the establishment of the Gospel through the whole world, in Psalm 69:33 and following verses. The reader will do well to consult the psalm before he proceeds.

And if there are two sides to a matter, …

Do not let those gloat over me who are my enemies without cause; do not let those who hate me without reason maliciously wink the eye.
Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.
With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause.
Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are "gods"'?
"I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: 'He who shared my bread has turned against me.'
