(40) And Jesus answering said . . .--The answer was, as the context shows, to the unspoken thoughts of the Pharisee.

Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee.--The name of the Pharisee is thus given to us, but it was too common to suggest any identification. It is a somewhat singular coincidence that the two anointings should have happened (comp. Matthew 26:6) each of them in the house of a Simon, but it cannot be looked on as more than accidental.

Master, say on.--The term used is 'one which implied recognition of our Lord's character as a teacher or Rabbi.

Verse 40. - And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. How accurately did the Master read Simon's heart. Not a real Prophet because he was in ignorance of the character and life of the woman whom he suffered without rebuke to pour the fragrant ointment over him! We almost see the half-sad smile flickering on the Teacher's lips as he turned and spoke to his host. Such a parable-story as Jesus was about to give utterance to was no uncommon form of teaching on such an occasion when a well-known Rabbi like Jesus was Guest at a festal gathering.
