    Definitions for Acts 19:32

    Wherefore - Why?; for what reason?; for what cause?

    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 19:32

    Some - cried one thing, and some another - This is an admirable description of a tumultuous mob, gathered together without law or reason; getting their passions inflamed, and looking for an opportunity to commit outrages, without why or wherefore - principle or object.

    For the assembly was confused - Ἡ εκκλησια; The same word which we translate church; and thus we find that it signifies any assembly, good or bad, lawful, or unlawful; and that only the circumstances of the case can determine the precise nature of the assembly to which this word is applied.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 19:32

    Some therefore cried one thing ... - This is an admirable description of a mob, assembled for what purpose they knew not; but agitated by passions, and strifes, and tumults.

    And the more part knew not ... - The greater part did not know. They had been drawn together by the noise and excitement, and but a small part would know the real cause of the commotion. This is usually the case in tumultuous meetings.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 19:32

    19:32 The greater part did not know for what they were come together - Which is commonly the case in such an assembly.
