Luke 6:30 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Ask them not again - Or, Do not beg them off. This probably refers to the way in which the tax-gatherers and Roman soldiers used to spoil the people. "When such harpies as these come upon your goods, suffer the injury quietly, leaving yourselves in the hand of God, rather than attempt even to beg off what belongs to you, lest on their part they be provoked to seize or spoil more, and lest you be irritated to sue them at law, which is totally opposite to the spirit and letter of the Gospel; or to speak bad words, or indulge wrong tempers, which would wound the spirit of love and mercy." Of such as these, and of all merciless creditors, who even sell the tools and bed of a poor man, it may be very truly said: -

Tristius haud illis monstrum, nec saevior ulla

Pestis et ira deum Stygiis sese extulit undis: -

Diripiunt dapes, contactaque omnia faedant Immundo: -

Virg. Aen. iii. ver. 214

"Monsters more fierce offended heaven ne'er sent

From hell's abyss, for human punishment: -

They snatch the meat, defiling all they find."

Dryden

However, it is probable that what is here spoken relates to requiring a thing speedily that had been lent, while the reason for borrowing it still continues. In Ecclus. 20:15, it is a part of the character of a very bad man, that to-day he lendeth, and tomorrow will he ask it again. From Luke 6:27 to Luke 6:30 our blessed Lord gives us directions how to treat our enemies.

1. Wish them well.

2. Do them good.

3. Speak as well of them as possible.

4. Be an instrument of procuring them good from others; use your influence in their behalf.

We Shall not be Curious in the Ranking of the Duties in which Christian Love...
We shall not be curious in the ranking of the duties in which Christian love should exercise itself. All the commandments of the second table are but branches of it: they might be reduced all to the works of righteousness and of mercy. But truly these are interwoven through other. Though mercy uses to be restricted to the showing of compassion upon men in misery, yet there is a righteousness in that mercy, and there is mercy in the most part of the acts of righteousness, as in not judging rashly,
