    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 5:24

    They doubted of them whereunto this would grow - They did not know what to think of the apostles, whether they had saved themselves by magic, or whether they were delivered by a real miracle; and they were at a loss to tell what the issue of these things would be.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 5:24

    The captain of the temple - See the notes on Acts 4:1.

    Doubted of them - They were in "perplexity" about these things. The word rendered "doubted" denotes "that state of anxiety which arises when a person has lost his way, or when he does not know what to do to escape from a difficulty." See Luke 9:7.

    Whereunto this would grow - What this "would be"; or, what would be the result or end of these events. For:

    (1) Their authority was disregarded.

    (2) God had opposed them by a miracle.

    (3) the doctrines of the apostles were gaining ground.

    (4) their efforts to resist them had been in vain. They need "not" have doubted; but sinners are not disposed to be convinced of the truth of religion.
