Matthew 25:36 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

I was sick, and ye visited me - Relieving the strangers, and visiting the sick, were in high estimation among the Jews. One of their sayings on this head is worthy of notice: "He who neglects to visit the sick is like him who has shed blood." That is, as he has neglected, when it was in his power, to preserve life, he is as guilty in the sight of the Lord as he is who has committed murder. See Kypke in loco.

Dying Lamps
'Our lamps are gone out.'--MATT. xxv. 8.

It is clearly to be preferred, not only because it more correctly represents the Greek, but because it sets before

For if we die now in the state of salvation, then at the last general day of judgment we shall hear this joyful sentence, proceeding out of the mouth of our Saviour Christ, when he will say, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess that kingdom which
