Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 13:25

_ _ master of the house is risen up and hath shut to the door — awfully sublime and vivid picture! At present he is represented as in a sitting posture, as if calmly looking on to see who will “strive,” while entrance is practicable, and who will merely “seek” to enter in. But this is to have an end, by the great Master of the house Himself rising and shutting the door, after which there will be no admittance.

_ _ Lord, Lord — emphatic reduplication, expressive of the earnestness now felt, but too late. (See on Matthew 7:21, Matthew 7:22).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 13:23-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 13:25

And even agonizing will not avail, after the door is shut. Agonize, therefore, now by faith, prayer, holiness, patience. And ye begin to stand without — Till then they had not thought of it! O how new will that sense of their misery be? How late? How lasting? I know not whence ye are — I know not, that is, I approve not of your ways.
