Wesley's Notes for Matthew 12:19


12:19 He shall not strive, nor clamour; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets - That is, he shall not be contentious, noisy, or ostentatious: but gentle, quiet, and lowly. We may observe each word rises above the other, expressing a still higher degree of humility and gentleness.

Discussion for Matthew 12:19

  • Nkosinathi for verse 19
    His humility, a stark naked contrast to His ministry of dunamis power.His humbleness is not evident in most man of power.This is a teaching,if not a revelation about how we must conduct ourselves, especially those who know that every little thing we can do and not is God Himself.In this manner, we give all the glory to God without accepting and or stealing accolades, honour and praises for ourselves. l 've known someone who was never selfish . whenever reminded about how beautiful, smart, articulate and efficient in the office, home or in public they were, she would retort with "l owe it to God who enables me " Such was the Lord, whom we ought to replicate every step He took, His personality and His divine character.
