    Definitions for John 13:21

    Verily - Truly; surely.

    Clarke's Commentary on John 13:21

    Was troubled in spirit - See the note on John 11:33.

    And testified - Spoke with great earnestness.

    Shall betray me - Παραδωσει με, Will deliver me up. Judas had already betrayed our blessed Lord, and he was now on the point of delivering him up into the hands of the chief priests. By all these warnings, did not our Lord intend that Judas should be benefited? - that he should repent of his iniquity, and turn and find mercy?

    Barnes' Notes on John 13:21

    Troubled in spirit - See John 12:27. The reason of his trouble here was that Judas, a professed friend, was about to betray him. He doubtless foresaw the deep and dreadful sorrows of his approaching death, and was also deeply affected with the ingratitude and wickedness of a professed friend. Jesus was man as well as God, and he felt like other men. His human nature shrank from suffering, and his tender sensibilities were affected not less deeply than would be those of other men by baseness and treason.

    Testified - He bore witness to the truth; openly declared what he had before intimated - that one of them would betray him.

    Wesley's Notes on John 13:21

    13:21 One of you - The speaking thus indefinitely at first was profitable to them all.
