And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
And he turned him unto his disciples,.... Both to the twelve apostles, and seventy disciples;
and said privately; or to them apart: the phrase "privately" is wanting in the Vulgate Latin version:
Blessed are the eyes that see the things that ye see; the person of the Messiah, his kingdom setting up in the world, miracles wrought by him, and Satan falling before him; See Gill on "Matthew 13:16".
