    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 9:31

    But they - spread abroad his fame - They should have held their peace; for to obey is better than sacrifice, 1 Samuel 15:22; but man must always be wiser than God, however, it may be profitable to remark,

    1st. That honor pursues those who fly from it.

    2dly. He who is thoroughly sensible of God's mercy cannot long contain his acknowledgments.

    3dly. That God in general requires that what a man has received, for his own salvation, shall become subservient to that of others - Let your light so shine, etc.

    God chooses to help man by man, that all may be firmly knit together in brotherly love.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 9:31

    But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame - The report of what he had done. This was not unnatural for them. They were so filled with joy that they could not repress their feelings. In this, however, they violated the express command of the Saviour; but he was not responsible for that.
