Luke 12:29 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Be ye of doubtful mind (μετεωρίζεσθε)

Only here in New Testament. The verb primarily means to raise to a height; buoy up, as with false hopes; and so to unsettle, or excite, or keep in fluctuation. Thus Thucydides says of the war between Athens and Sparta: "All Hellas was excited (μετέωρος) by the coming conflict between the two chief cities" (ii., 8).
