30他不 肯 ,竟 去 把他 下 在监 里 ,等 他还了 所欠的债 。
30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
30 Verse 30. And he would not, &c.] To the unmerciful, God will

show no mercy; this is an eternal purpose of the Lord, which never

can be changed. God teaches us what to do to a fellow-sinner, by

what HE does to us. Our fellow-servant's debt to us, and ours to

God, are as one hundred denarii to ten thousand talents! When we

humble ourselves before him, God freely forgives us all this

mighty sum! And shall we exact from our brother recompense for

the most trifling faults? Reader, if thou art of this unmerciful,

unforgiving cast, read out the chapter.



"All the souls that are were forfeit once,

And he who might the 'vantage best have took,

Found out the remedy. How would you be,

If HE, who is the top of judgment, should

But judge you as you are? O! think on that,

And mercy then will breathe within your lips

Like man new made.

Though justice be thy plea, consider this,

That, in the course of justice, none of us

Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy;

And that same prayer doth teach us all to render

The deeds of Mercy.-"
