11你们无论进哪一座城哪一个村,都要打听谁配接待你们,就住在那里,直到离去。
11And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
11 Verse 11. Into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter] In the

commencement of Christianity, Christ and his preachers were all

itinerant.



Inquire who in it is worthy] That is, of a good character; for

a preacher of the Gospel should be careful of his reputation, and

lodge only with those who are of a regular life.



There abide till ye go thence.] Go not about from house to

house, . Acting contrary to this precept has often

brought a great disgrace on the Gospel of God. Stay in your own

lodging as much as possible, that you may have time for prayer and

study. Seldom frequent the tables of the rich and great; if you

do, it will unavoidably prove a snare to you. The unction of God

will perish from your mind, and your preaching be only a dry

barren repetition of old things; the bread of God in your hands

will be like the dry, mouldy, Gibeonitish crusts, mentioned

. He who knows the value of time, and will redeem it from

useless chit-chat, and trifling visits, will find enough for all

the purposes of his own salvation, the cultivation of his mind,

and the work of the ministry. He to whom time is not precious,

and who lives not by rule, never finds time sufficient for any

thing-is always embarrassed-always in a hurry, and never capable

of bringing one good purpose to proper effect.
