Treasury of Scripture

For the manager is not at home, he is gone a long journey:

the good man

Matthew 20:11
And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,

Matthew 24:43
But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Luke 12:39
And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

he

Matthew 24:48
But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

Mark 13:34-36
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch…

Luke 12:45,46
But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; …









(19) The goodman.--Literally, the man; she does not even call him "my husband."

At the day appointed.--Rather, at the full moon, a fortnight later, as now it would seem to have been new moon, when the nights are dark.

Verse 19. - The temptress proceeds to encourage the youth by showing that there is no fear of interruption or detection. The goodman is not at home. "Goodman" is an old word meaning "master of the house," or husband (Matthew 20:11, etc.); but the Hebrew is simply "the man," which is probably a contemptuous way of speaking of the husband whom she was outraging. He is gone a long journey; he has gone to a place at a great distance hence. This fact might assure her lover that he was safe from her husband's jealousy (Proverbs 6:34); but she has further encouragement to offer.
