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.
