14: οι δε φαρισαιοι συμβουλιον ελαβον κατ αυτου εξελθοντες οπως αυτον απολεσωσιν— edit Textus Receptus
14: Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.— edit KJV text
14: And the Pharisees going out made a consultation against him, how they might destroy him.— edit Douay text


This account is found also in Mk 3:6ff.

Verse 14. The Pharisees - held a council, etc. Mark adds, that the Herodians also took a part in this plot. They were probably a political party, attached firmly to Herod. See Barnes "Mt 3:7".

The friends of Herod were opposed to Jesus, and ever ready to join any plot against his life. They remembered, doubtless, the attempts of Herod the Great against him when he was the Babe of Bethlehem; and they were stung with the memory of the escape of Jesus from his bloody hands. The attempt against him now was the effect of envy. They were enraged also that he had foiled them in the argument; they hated his popularity; they were losing their influence; and they, therefore, resolved to take him out of the way.

  • "council" or, "took counsel"
