30你们这小信的人 哪!野地里的 草 今天 还在 ,明天 就丢 在炉 里 ,神 还给他这样的 妆饰 ,何况你们 呢!
30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
30 Verse 30. If God so clothe the grass of the field] Christ

confounds both the luxury of the rich in their superfluities, and

the distrust of the poor as to the necessaries of life. Let man,

who is made for God and eternity, learn from a flower of the field

how low the care of Providence stoops. All our inquietudes and

distrusts proceed from lack of faith: that supplies all wants.

The poor are not really such, but because they are destitute of

faith.



To-morrow is cast into the oven] The inhabitants of the east,

to this day, make use of dry straw, withered herbs, and stubble,

to heat their ovens. Some have translated the original word

κλιβανον, a still, and intimate that our Lord alludes to the

distillation of herbs for medicinal purposes; but this is

certainly contrary to the scope of our Lord's argument, which runs

thus: If God covers with so much glory things of no farther value

than to serve the meanest uses, will he not take care of his

servants, who are so precious in his sight, and designed for such

important services in the world? See Harmer's Observations.
