“And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:11 Take no thought - Be not solicitous about the matter or manner of your defence; nor how to express yourselves. #Mt 10:19|; Lu 21:12.
12:14 Who made me a judge? - In worldly things. His kingdom is not of this world.
12:15 He said to them - Perhaps to the two brothers, and through them to the people. A man's life - That is, the comfort or happiness of it.
Lu 12:13 One of the company said. This question concerning the inheritance, and the parable of the Rich Fool that follows, are only found in Luke. Speak to my brother. The man wished to enlist Christ's moral power for his pecuniary advantage. Whether his brother had wronged him or not is not stated, but the Lord's business was not to gain acres of land and money for men.
