26那仆人 就 俯伏 拜 他 ,说 :主阿 ,宽容 我 ,将来我都要 还清 。
26The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
26 Verse 26. Fell down and worshipped him] προσεκυνειαυτω,

crouched as a dog before him, with the greatest deference,

submission, and anxiety.



Have patience with me] μακροθυμησονεπεμοι, be long-minded

towards me-give me longer space.



The means which a sinner should use to be saved, are, 1. Deep

humiliation of heart-he fell down. 2. Fervent prayer. 3.

Confidence in the mercy of God-have patience. 4. A firm purpose

to devote his soul and body to his Maker-I will pay thee all. A

sinner may be said, according to the economy of grace, to pay all,

when he brings the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus to the throne of

justice, by faith; thus offering an equivalent for the pardon he

seeks, and paying all he owes to Divine justice, by presenting the

blood of the Lamb.
