John Wesley's notes on the Gospel: Luke 19:41-47a


42 O that thou hadst known, at least in this thy day - After thou hast neglected so many. Thy day - The day wherein God still offers thee his blessings. 

43 Thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee around - All this was exactly performed by Titus, the Roman general. 

44 And thy children within thee - All the Jews were at that time gathered together, it being the time of the passover. They shall not leave in thee one stone upon another - Only three towers were left standing for a time, to show the former strength and magnificence of the place. But these likewise were afterward levelled with the ground. 

45 Mt 21:12; Mr 11:11. 

46 Isa 56:7.
