Bible Commentary for Matthew 25:8

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 25:8


25:8 Give us of your oil, for our lamps are gone out - Our faith is dead. What a time to discover this! Whether it mean the time of death, or of judgment. Unto which of the saints wilt thou then turn? Who can help thee at such a season?


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:8


Mt 25:8 Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. The Revised Version says, more correctly, "Our lamps are going out". They had kept up a flickering light to this time. Their apparent piety, though it satisfied them before, was not sufficient now. Shams disappear in the presence of death or judgment.
