25那 时 ,耶稣 说 :父阿 ,天 地 的主 ,我感谢 你 !因为 你将这些事 向 聪明 通达 人就藏起来 ,向婴孩 就 显出来 。




25 ¶ At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
25 Verse 25. I thank thee] εξομολογουμαισοι, I fully agree with

thee-I am perfectly of the same mind. Thou hast acted in all

things according to the strictest holiness, justice, mercy, and

truth.



Wise and prudent] The scribes and Pharisees, vainly puffed up

by their fleshly minds, and having their foolish hearts darkened,

refusing to submit to the righteousness of God (God's method of

saving man by Christ) and going about to establish their own

righteousness, (their own method of saving themselves,) they

rejected God's counsel, and God sent the peace and salvation of

the Gospel to others, called here babes, (his disciples,)

simple-hearted persons, who submitted to be instructed and saved

in God's own way. Let it be observed, that our Lord does not

thank the Father that he had hidden these things from the wise and

prudent, but that, seeing they were hidden from them, he had

revealed them to the others.



There is a remarkable saying in the Talmudists, which casts

light upon this: "Rab. Jochanan said: 'From the time in which the

temple was destroyed, wisdom was taken away from the prophets, and

give a to fools and children.' Bava Bathra, fol. 12. Again: 'In

the days of the Messiah, every species of wisdom, even the most

profound, shall, be revealed; and this even to children.'" Synop.

Sohar. fol. 10.
