John 12:19 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "The Pharisees therefore said among themselves," (hoi oun Pharisaioi eipan pros heautous) "Then the Pharisees said to themselves," one to another, in frustration, confused, blinded by the god of this world, yet doggedly desiring the death of both Jesus and Lazarus, 2Co 4:3-4; Eph 4:18; Psa 2:2.

2) "Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing?" (theoreite hoti oil opheileite ouden) "Do you all not realize that you do not profit a thing at all?" The masses of the Pharisee laymen seemed to chide the ruling Pharisees for their measures formerly announced to exclude any from the synagogue who would confess Him, Joh 9:22; Joh 9:34; Joh 12:42-43. And their death threat rumors had also been in vain to stop either Him or the people from following Him, Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 8:37; Joh 8:40-44.

3) "Behold, the world is gone after him." (ide ho kosmos opiso autou apelthen) "Take notice that the world is gone after him," or the greater part of the Jewish laity, they said peevishly, Luk 19:37.
