This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Then (οὖν)

Rev., rightly, therefore: because of His words.

Murmured (ἐγγόγυζον)

See on Jud 1:16, and compare 1Co 10:10; Phi 2:14. The word is constantly used in the Septuagint of the murmuring of Israel in the wilderness. Wyc., grudged of Him. So Chaucer, “Judas grucched agens the Maudeleyn whan sche anoynted the hed of oure Lord” (“Parson's Tale”); and Shakespeare,


Without or grudge or grumbling.”

“Tempest” 1, 2, 249.

At Him (περὶ αὐτοῦ)

Implying that they addressed their remonstrances to Him. But περί means about or concerning. So Rev., properly, concerning.
