22那青年听见这话,就忧忧愁愁地走了,原来他的财产很多。
22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
22 Verse 22. Went away sorrowful] Men undergo great agony of mind

while they are in suspense between the love of the world and the

love of their souls. When the first absolutely predominates, then

they enjoy a factitious rest through a false peace: when the

latter has the upper hand, then they possess true tranquillity of

mind, through that peace of God that passeth knowledge.



He had great possessions.] And what were these in comparison of

peace of conscience, and mental rest? Besides, he had unequivocal

proof that these contributed nothing to his comfort, for he is now

miserable even while he possesses them! And so will every soul

be, who puts worldly goods in the place of the supreme God.
