Is it nothing to you, all you that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like to my sorrow, which is done to me…
I. THE GREATNESS OF OUR SAVIOUR'S SUFFERINGS.
II. THE INTEREST THAT WE HAVE IN OUR SAVIOUR'S SUFFERINGS.
1. We were the occasion of them.
2. Their benefits redound unto us (Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 10:19, 20; Romans 3:15; Hebrews 10:20).
III. THE REGARD AND CONSIDERATION WE SHOULD BESTOW ON THEM. Fix the eyes of your mind, and call up your most serious attention; reach hither the hand of your faith, and thrust it into your Saviour's side; put your fingers into the print of the nails; lay to heart all the passages of His lamentable story; and this cannot but melt your heart, unless it be harder than the rocks, and dealer than the bodies in the graves.
(H. Scougal, M. A.)
Parallel VersesKJV: Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.
