THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 20 - Verse 15

Verse 15. Is thine eye evil because I am good? The Hebrews used the word evil, when applied to the eye, to denote one envious and malicious, De 15:9; Pr 23:6. The eye is called evil in such cases, because envy and malice show themselves directly in the eye. No passions are so fully expressed by the eye as these. "Does envy show itself in the eye; is thine eye so soon turned to express envy and malice, because I have chosen to do good?"

{f} "Is it not" Ro 9:15-24; Jas 1:18 {g} "Is thine eye" Mt 19:30
