People's Bible Notes for Matthew 18:26

Mt 18:26 Fell down, and worshipped him. In Oriental countries, almost all who approach monarchs prostrate themselves and offer homage. This is especially true of those who urge a petition. See Es 8:3. Have patience, . . . I will pay thee all. This promise was one that could not possibly be fulfilled, though the servant might think it possible.

Demyanna's comment on 2013-08-03 06:49:42:

This may be an example of humbleness before our Mighty God. Here on earth we approach royalty with all respect without hesitating , now when it comes to Our God falling down is a sign of respect and also knowing you are nothing before God, which is why we should fall down in worship and all times when talking to God.We need to honour him with our bodies fully, not just by bowing our head. Philippians 2:12,13
