Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 16:20-21.


Luke 16:21

_ _ desiring to be fed with — but was not [Grotius, Bengel, Meyer, Trench, etc.]. The words may mean indeed “was fain to feed on,” or “gladly fed on,” as in Luke 15:16 [Alford, Webster and Wilkinson, etc.]. But the context rather favors the former.

_ _ licked, etc. — a touching act of brute pity, in the absence of human relief. It is a case of heartless indifference, amidst luxuries of every kind, to one of God’s poorest and most afflicted ones, presented daily before the eye.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 16:19-31.
