John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary

Verse 13 (Mark 10:13)

And they brought young children to him ,.... The parents, or friends, or nurses of the children in those parts, having heard of the fame of Jesus; and having entertained an high opinion of him, as a great prophet, and a holy, good man, brought their children in their arms, or hands,

that he should touch them ; as he did when he healed diseased persons, as these might be, though not expressed:

and his disciples rebuked those that brought them ; See Gill on Matthew 19:13 .
