I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled…
Even in Pagan story the name of Ephialtes enjoyed a bad preeminence, and could not be mentioned without horror, whom no love of his country, no admiration of heroic valour, not the dear pledges of his friends, nor the threatened tyranny of a degrading foe, could withhold from such a deed of shame; but Persian gold, more sacred to that base mind than all of these, bribed him to guide the enemy over the mountain path, and surprise that devoted Spartan band. Sad indeed that in Christian annals it should have its more than parallel.
(C. J. Brown, M. A.)
One of you shall betray Me. —
I. "YOU" WHOM I HAVE LOVED SO TENDERLY.
II. "YOU" WHOM I HAVE TAUGHT SO PATIENTLY.
III. "YOU" WHOM I HAVE SERVED SO FAITHFULLY.
(S. S. Tinges.)
