And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
Note 2 at Mt 21:44: Jesus had just revealed that He was this stone that David spoke of in Ps 118:22 (see note 1 at Lu 20:9). Therefore, Jesus was speaking of Himself as the stone in this verse also. Those who come to Jesus (fall upon that stone) must be broken or of a contrite heart (Ps 34:18, 51:17; and Isa 57:15). Those who refuse to humble themselves and rely (fall) upon Jesus will have Jesus fall upon them in severe judgment at the last day (see note 10 at Joh 3:17).
