3说 :我实在 告诉 你们 ,你们若不 回转 ,变成 小孩子 的样式 ,断不得 进 天 国 。
3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
3 Verse 3. Except ye be converted] Unless ye be saved from those

prejudices which are at present so baneful to your nation,

(seeking a temporal and not a spiritual kingdom,) unless ye be

clothed with the spirit of humility, ye cannot enter into the

spirit, design, and privileges of my spiritual and eternal

kingdom. The name of this kingdom should put you in mind of its

nature.-1. The KING is heavenly; 2. His SUBJECTS are

heavenly-minded; 3. Their COUNTRY is heavenly, for they are

strangers and pilgrims upon earth; 4. The GOVERNMENT of this

kingdom is wholly spiritual and divine. See on Mt 3:2.



And become as little children] i.e. Be as truly without

worldly ambition, and the lust of power, as little children are,

who act among themselves as if all were equal. The following

saying from the Boostan of the poet Saady is very appropriate.

"The hearts of infants being free from avarice, what care they for

a handful of silver more than for a handful of dust?"
