Bible Commentary for Luke 11:31

Wesley's Notes for Luke 11:31


11:29 It seeketh - The original word implies seeking more, or over and above what one has already.

11:32 They repented at the preaching of Jonah - But it was only for a season. Afterward they relapsed into wickedness, till (after about forty years) they were destroyed. It is remarkable, that in this also the comparison held. God reprieved the Jews for about forty years; but they still advanced in wickedness, till having filled up their measure, they were destroyed with an utter destruction.

11:33 The meaning is, God gives you this Gospel light, that you may repent. Let your eye be singly fixed on him, aim only at pleasing God; and while you do this, your whole soul will be full of wisdom, holiness, and happiness. #Mt 5:15|; Mr 4:21; Lu 8:16.
