Luke 16:16

_ _ The law, etc. — (See Matthew 11:13).

_ _ and every man presseth, etc. — Publicans and sinners, all indiscriminately, are eagerly pressing into it; and ye, interested adherents of the mere forms of an economy which is passing away, “discerning not the signs of this time,” will allow the tide to go past you and be found a stranded monument of blindness and obstinacy.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 16:1-18.
