THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 25 - Verse 29

Verse 29. For unto every one that hath shall be given. See Barnes "Mt 13:12".

This seems to be a proverbial expression. It means, whosoever rightly improves what is committed to him shall receive more, or shall be rewarded; but he that misimproves what is committed to him shall not be rewarded. In pecuniary matters—in the literal sense of this parable—they who improve their money by industry or merchandise, increase it; they who do not—who are indolent or vicious—lose what they did possess, and it goes into the hands of the faithful and industrious. In the spiritual sense of the parable, it means only that they who are faithful shall be rewarded —not, however, that anything shall be taken from the unfaithful and given to them; and that the unfaithful and indolent shall be taken away from their privileges and punished.

{s} "For unto" Mt 13:12; Mr 4:25; Lu 8:18; 19:26

{t} "taken away" Lu 10:42
