9你们腰袋里不要带金、银、铜钱;
9Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
9 Verse 9. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass, in your

purses] ειςταςξωναςυμων, in your GIRDLES. It is supposed

that the people of the east carry their money in a fold of their

girdles. This is scarcely correct: they carry it in a purse in

their bosom, under their girdles. This I have often observed.



In a thousand instances an apostolic preacher, who goes to the

wilderness to seek the lost sheep, will be exposed to hunger and

cold, and other inconveniences; he must therefore resign himself

to God, depending on his providence for the necessaries of life.

If God have sent him, he is bound to support him, and will do it:

anxiety therefore, in him, is a double crime, as it insinuates a

bad opinion of the Master who has employed him. Every missionary

should make himself master of this subject.



Have no money in your purse, is a command, obedience to which

was secured by the narrow circumstances of most of the primitive

genuine preachers of the Gospel. Whole herds of friars mendicants

have professed the same principle, and abandoned themselves to

voluntary poverty; but if the money be in the heart it is a worse

evil. In the former case, it may be a temptation to sin; in the

latter, it must be ruinous.
