19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
19 Verse 19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit] What
a terrible sentence is this against Christless pastors, and
Christless hearers! Every tree that produceth not good fruit,
εκκοπτεται, is to be now cut down; the act of excision is now
taking place: the curse of the Lord is even now on the head and
the heart of every false teacher, and impenitent hearer.
