“Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;”
King James Version (KJV)
9:37 The harvest truly is great - When Christ came into the world, it was properly the time of harvest; till then it was the seed time only. But the labourers are few - Those whom God sends; who are holy, and convert sinners. Of others there are many. #Luke 10:2|.
Mt 9:37 The harvest truly [is] plentiful, but the labourers [are] few. First the people are represented under the figure of sheep, scattering abroad, without a shepherd's care; next as a ripe and abandoned harvest, ready to be lost unless reapers are sent to gather it.
