Wesley's Notes for Matthew 5:18


5:18 Till all things shall be effected - Which it either requires or foretells. For the law has its effect, when the rewards are given, and the punishments annexed to it inflicted, as well as when its precepts are obeyed. #Luke 16:17; 21:33|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:18


Mt 5:18 Verily I say unto you. This formula always introduces a very emphatic saying. It occurs thirty times in Matthew. See notes on Mr 3:28 Lu 4:24 Joh 3:3. One jot or one tittle. "Jot" means the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet, while "tittle" refers to a simple turn by which one letter is distinguished from another. The expression, "jot or tittle", was proverbial for the smallest part. Till all be fulfilled. Says Dr. Schaff, ``"Till" implies that after the great events of Christ's life, and the establishment of his kingdom, the old dispensation, as a dispensation of the letter and yoke of bondage, as a system of types and shadows, will pass away, and has passed away (Eph 2:15 Col 2:14 Heb 8:13); while the spirit and substance of the law, i.e., love to God and man, will last forever.''

    Praise the Lord (Jesus) for his word is true and his mercies are everlasting. Jesus tells us to love those who hate us, and pray for those who despitefully use you. By doing this we know we are the sons of God, because this does not come naturally. His word is a soothing balm to those which were sick and are sick. Selah

    Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me for they are thine. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
