Luke 12:42 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Faithful and wise steward - See on Matthew 24:45 (note); where the several parts of the steward's office are mentioned and explained. Those appear to have been stewards among the Jews, whose business it was to provide all the members of a family, not only with food, but with raiment.
