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.

Discussion for Matthew 6:29

  • Gurjit Singh for verse 29
    Solomen, the higher rank people work hard for their dressing and arraying themselves as higher in the people.But their arrangement nowhere withstand ' the arrangement by God for even lillies,grass or birds or other small being.We should keep trust in that God is caring for us.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 29
    The context of this verse is that Solomon in all of his glory, did not clothe himself lavishly as other kings did, but modestly dressed as a servant of God. Jesus pointed out how the birds and lilies were more arrayed than Solomon. We are not to worry about clothing or food, as God provides for them, and how much greater shall He provide for us. We must have faith in God just as the birds of the air, who do not have barns or bank accounts, yet our Heavenly Father takes care of them. My God shall provide all my needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
