John 10:39 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Therefore they sought again to take him:" (eksetoun oun auton palin piasai) "Then they attempted to arrest him again," apparently they dropped their stones that they had held in their clutches for a time, Joh 10:31; but they still were intent on arresting and harassing Him again, as in Joh 7:30; Joh 7:32; Joh 7:44,
2) "But he escaped out of their hand," (kai ekselthen ek tes cheiros auton) "And he went forth out of and away from their hands," so that they could not hold and stone Him to death, as they were intent on doing, with malice and murder in their hearts, Joh 10:31; For His "hour was not yet," Luk 4:30; Joh 8:59.
