John 7:49 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "But this people who knoweth not the law,'' (alla ho ochlos houtos ho me ginoskon ton nomon) "But this crowd --- not knowing the law (like we do)," These Pharisees spoke with contempt of people they should have pitied, if they really believed them to be deceived. Yet they themselves did not keep, but perverted it, Mar 7:1-13. These Pharisees alluded to the crowd who followed Jesus as the "unlettered rabbi" or "scum of the earth."

2) "Are cursed." (eparatoi eisin) "They are cursed," or they exist in an accursed state or condition. Really their greatest curse is having such wicked rulers, who were themselves candidates and fodder for the fires of hell, as described, Psa 1:4; Mat 23:13-15; Mat 23:29-33.
