Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 12:6-7

_ _ five ... for two farthings — In Matthew 10:29 it is “two for one farthing”; so if one took two farthings’ worth, he got one in addition — of such small value were they.

_ _ than many sparrows — not “than millions of sparrows”; the charm and power of our Lord’s teaching is very much in this simplicity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 12:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 12:6

Are not five sparrows — But trust as well as fear him.
