People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:43


Mt 5:43 Thou shalt love thy neighbour. See Le 19:18. The Jews gave the command a very limited application. For Christ's application, see parable of the Good Samaritan (Lu 10:30-37). It embraces any one so near us as to need and to receive our acts of kindness. Hate thine enemy. A Jewish perversion of the meaning of De 23:6. It exhibits the spirit of the whole heathen world. Plato praises the Athenians because they hated the Persians more than any of the other Greeks.

  • A disciple
    Matthew 5:11 (cont.); Alongside knowing and feeling how much we fall short, and how utterly needy we are continually of the Lord's mercy and guidance in the way we walk through our days; the contemplation that we are suffering for Jesus' sake is most convicting and shines His Light into our innermost self. We are weak and faulty, and so its hard to always say that we suffer for being a Christian.
  • Cephas
    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
