John 10:5 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "And a stranger will they not follow," (allotrio de ou me akolouthesousin) "Yet a stranger they will not follow by any means," whose voice they do not recognize, whose love they have not discovered or experienced.

2) "But they will flee from him:” (alla pheuksontai ap' autou) ''But they will flee from him," out of fear, of their own will and choice, apprehensive of danger, Joh 10:12-13 And they should, 2Ti 3:5, 2Co 11:13-15; Gal 1:8.

3) "For they know not the voice of strangers." (hoti ouk oidasin ton allotrion ten phonen) ''Because they do not know or recognize the voice of the stranger," Rev 2:2 though he may imitate the voice of the shepherd, Mat 7:15-23, Act 20:29-30. They, as strangers infiltrate the flock with enticing words, but the more the sheep know the shepherd, the better they can lead the retreat, the fleeing of the flock from the destroyer, 2Pe 2:1-3; 2Pe 2:17-19.
