Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 23:10

_ _ the chief captain, fearing lest Paul should have been pulled to pieces ... commanded the soldiers to go down and take him by force, etc. — This shows that the commandant was not himself present, and further, that instead of the Sanhedrim trying the cause, the proceedings quickly consisted in the one party attempting to seize the prisoner, and the other to protect him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
