Luke 17:5 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Increase our faith - This work of pardoning every offense of every man, and that continually, seemed so difficult, even to the disciples themselves, that they saw, without an extraordinary degree of faith, they should never be able to keep this command. But some think that this and what follows relate to what Matthew has mentioned. Matthew 17:19, Matthew 17:20.

Of the Fewness of those who Love the Cross of Jesus
