6:29 Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these - Not in garments of so pure a white. The eastern monarchs were often clothed in white robes.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:29


Mt 6:29 Even Solomon in all his glory. To the Jew the court of Solomon was the highest representation of human glory. The magnificence of the court is not only celebrated in Jewish writings, but in all Oriental literature, and it is still proverbial throughout the East. Yet he was never arrayed with the taste and beauty of "one of these". It is probable that both birds and lilies were in sight from where the Lord was sitting.

    The Lord's Prayer teaches us not to be selfish in our prayers,i.e making a prayer that is too much self centered without giving praise to God for his glory.

    Lent is in the bible 7 times in ex 12:36, Deut 23; 13, 1st Sam 1 : 28, 1st Sam 2:20, Jer 15:10.
  • UtahMcBride
    Lent: As it is true that the New Test. doesn't set aside times or seasons to fast, it doesn't prohibit the church from fasting together, either. It is interesting that Jesus switches between singular "thou" to plural "ye" when talking about fasting: I think he is addressing the church, not just the individual. He isn't teaching absolute secrecy but rather a quiet attitude. Lent isn't bad or good.

    Hi Jenny when taking about God it best to use Capital letters for He , Jesus so on when referring to Him it respectful and show Jesus is all powerful so confess and repent it to Jesus and change then all wrongs and it would be ok

    Verse 33 shows that we need to put Jehovah God first in our lives. Material things have their place, but not first place.
