Luke 18:25 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Camel

See on Matthew 19:24.

To go through the eye of a needle (διὰ τρήματος βελόνης εἰσελθεῖν)

Rev., more literally, to enter in through a needle's eye. Both Matthew and Mark use another word for needle (ῥαφίς); see on Mark 10:25. Luke alone has βελόνη, which, besides being an older term, is the peculiar word for the surgical needle. The other word is condemned by the Greek grammarians as barbarous.

Luke 18:25 Parallel Commentaries

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

a camel. Some render a cable; but it may justly be doubted whether [kamelos] ever was so translated before, for the word for a cable, as the scholiast on Aristophanes expressly affirms, is written [kamilos,] not with an e [eta], but with an i [iota.] Some few MSS., it is true, have got the word [kamilos] into the text, but it is evidently an attempted improvement.

Matthew 23:24 You blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
