Acts 8:21

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 8:21

Thou hast neither part — By purchase, nor lot — Given gratis, in this matter — This gift of God. For thy heart is not right before God — Probably St. Peter discerned this long before he had declared it; although it does not appear that God gave to any of the apostles a universal power of discerning the hearts of all they conversed with; any more than a universal power of healing all the sick they came near. This we are sure St. Paul had not; though he was not inferior to the chief of the apostles. Otherwise he would not have suffered the illness of Epaphroditus to have brought him so near to death, Philippians 2:25-27; nor have left so useful a fellow labourer as Trophimus sick at Miletus, 2 Timothy 4:20.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 8:21

Thou hast neither part nor lot in this (e) matter: for thy heart is not (f) right in the sight of God.

(e) In this doctrine which I preach.

(f) Is not upright indeed and without the concealing of hypocritical motives.
