    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 12:23

    Is not this the son of David? - Is not this the true Messiah? Do not these miracles sufficiently prove it? See Isaiah 35:5.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 12:23

    Is not this the Son of David? - That is, Is not this the promised "descendant" of David, the Messiah? They were acquainted with the prophecy in Isaiah 35:5, "Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped," and they inferred that he must be the promised Messiah who was able to do this. This inference was drawn by the common people, and not by the proud and haughty Pharisees. It is not uncommon that people of plain common sense, though unlearned, see the true meaning of the Bible, while those who are filled with pride and science, falsely so called, are blinded.

    Wesley's Notes on Matthew 12:23

    12:23 Is not this the son of David - That is, the Messiah.
