Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:10


10:10 Neither scrip - That is, a wallet, or bag to hold provisions: Nor yet a staff - We read, #Mark 6:8|, Take nothing, save a staff only. He that had one might take it; they that had none, might not provide any. For the workman is worthy of his maintenance - The word includes all that is mentioned in the 9th and 10th verses; #Mt 10:9|,10 all that they were forbidden to provide for themselves, so far as it was needful for them. #Luke 10:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:10


Mt 10:10 Nor scrip. A wallet, or valise. Nor shoes. They were allowed to wear sandals, such as the common people wore (Mr 6:8,9). They should go with simply their ordinary wear. They were required to dress as the people. Nor staves. With the staff each one had, but without an extra supply. A staff was always carried in walking over the rugged mountains of Palestine.
