“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:21 And he said, Is a candle - As if he had said, I explain these things to you, I give you this light, not to conceal, but to impart it to others. And if I conceal any thing from you now, it is only that it may be more effectually manifested hereafter. #Mt 5:15|; Lu 8:16; 11:33.
4:22 #Mt 10:26|; Lu 8:17.
4:24 Take heed what ye hear - That is, attend to what you hear, that it may have its due influence upon you. With what measure you mete - That is, according to the improvement you make of what you have heard, still farther assistance shall be given. And to you that hear - That is, with improvement.
4:25 He that hath - That improves whatever he has received, to the good of others, as well as of his own soul. #Mt 13:12|; Lu 8:18.
