36于是园主再派其他的仆人去,人数比前一次更多,但佃户也是同样对付他们。
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
36 Verse 36. Other servants] There is not a moment in which God

does not shower down his gifts upon men, and require the fruit of

them. Various instruments are used to bring sinners to God.

There are prophets, apostles, pastors, teachers: some with his

gift after this manner, and some after that. The true disciples

of Christ have been persecuted in all ages, and the greatest share

of the persecution has fallen upon the ministers of his religion;

for there have always been good and bad husbandmen, and the latter

have persecuted the former.



More than the first] Or, more honourable, so I think πλειονας

should be translated; for, as the fulness of the time approached,

each prophet more clearly and fully pointed out the coming of

Christ.



Our translation, which says, more than the first, conveys no

meaning at all. πλειος is the meaning I have given it above, in

.

πλειοντηςτροφης, of MORE VALUE than food; and in

πλειουςκαιεντιμοτερους, persons higher in dignity and office.
