    Clarke's Commentary on John 8:29

    The Father hath not left me alone - Though ye shalt have power to put me to death, yet this shall not be because he hath abandoned me. No - he is ever with me, because I do that which pleaseth him; and it is his pleasure that I should lay down my life for the salvation of the world. Does not our Lord allude to the following scriptures? - Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; my ears hast thou opened: (or, a body hast thou prepared me: Hebrews 10:5): then said I, Lo, I:come: this is written in the volume of the book concerning me. I delight to do thy will, O my God! Thy law is in my heart. Psalm 40:6-8.

    Barnes' Notes on John 8:29

    Is with me - In working miracles, etc.

    Hath not left me alone - Though men had forsaken and rejected him, yet God attended him.

    Those things that please him - See Matthew 3:17; "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased," Philippians 2:8; Isaiah 53:10-12; 2 Peter 1:17; Luke 3:22; Matthew 17:5. His undertaking the work of redemption was pleasing to God, and he had the consciousness that in executing it he did those things which God approved. It is a small matter to have men opposed to us, if we have a conscience void of offence, and evidence that we please God. Compare Hebrews 11:5; "Enoch - before his translation had this testimony that he pleased God." See also 1 Corinthians 4:3.

    Wesley's Notes on John 8:29

    8:29 The Father hath not left me alone - Never from the moment I came into the world.
