Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 17:5

_ _ Lord — (See on Luke 10:1).

_ _ increase our faith — moved by the difficulty of avoiding and forgiving “offenses.” This is the only instance in which a spiritual operation upon their souls was solicited of Christ by the Twelve; but a kindred and higher prayer had been offered before, by one with far fewer opportunities. (See on Mark 9:24.)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 17:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 17:5

Lord, increase our faith — That we may thus forgive, and may neither offend nor be offended. Matthew 17:20.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 17:5

(3) And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

(3) God will never be utterly lacking to the godly (although he may not be as thorough with them as they wish) even in those difficulties which cannot be overcome by man's reason.
