    Clarke's Commentary on John 12:37

    Yet they believed not on him - Though the miracles were wrought for this very purpose, that they might believe in Christ, and escape the coming wrath, and every evidence given that Jesus was the Messiah, yet they did not believe; but they were blinded by their passions, and obstinately hardened their hearts against the truth.

    Barnes' Notes on John 12:37

    So many miracles - This does not refer to any miracles performed on this occasion, but to all his miracles performed in view of the nation, in healing the sick, opening the eyes of the blind, raising the dead, etc. John here gives the summary or the result of all his work undeniable proof of his being the Messiah, yet the nation did not believe on him.

    Before them - Before the Jewish nation. Not in the presence of the people whom he was then addressing, but before the Jewish people.

    They believed not - The Jewish nation did not believe as a nation, but rejected him.

    Wesley's Notes on John 12:37

    12:37 Though he had done so many miracles before them - So that they could not but see them.
