21可是他里面没有根,只是暂时的;一旦为道遭遇患难,受到迫害,就立刻跌倒了。
21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
21 Verse 21. Yet hath he not root in himself] His soul is not

deeply convinced of its guilt and depravity; the fallow ground is

not properly ploughed up, nor the rock broken. When persecution,

&c., ariseth, which he did not expect, he is soon stumbled-seeks

some pretext to abandon both the doctrine and followers of Christ.

Having not felt his own sore, and the plague of his heart, he has

not properly discovered that this salvation is the only remedy for

his soul: thus he has no motive in his heart strong enough to

counteract the outward scandal of the cross; so he endureth only

for the time in which there is no difficulty to encounter, no

cross to bear.
