Bible Commentary for Luke 11:43

Wesley's Notes for Luke 11:43


11:41 Give what is in them - The vessels which ye clean, in alms, and all things are clean to you. As if he had said, By acts directly contrary to rapine and wickedness, show that your hearts are cleansed, and these outward washings are needless.

11:42 Wo to you - That is, miserable are you. In the same manner is the phrase to be understood throughout the chapter.

11:44 For ye are as graves which appear not - Probably in speaking this our Lord fixed his eyes on the scribes. As graves which appear not, being overgrown with grass, so that men are not aware, till they stumble upon them, and either hurt themselves, or at least are defiled by touching them. On another occasion Christ compared them to whited sepulchres, fair without, but foul within; #Mt 23:27|.

11:45 One of the lawyers - That is scribes; expounders of the law.
