Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 7:44-47.


Luke 7:46

_ _ with oil ... not anoint — even common olive oil in contrast with the woman’s “ointment” or aromatic balsam. What evidence was thus afforded of any feeling which forgiveness prompts? Our Lord speaks this with delicate politeness, as if hurt at these inattentions of His host, which though not invariably shown to guests, were the customary marks of studied respect and regard. The inference is plain — only one of the debtors was really forgiven, though in the first instance, to give room for the play of withheld feelings, the forgiveness of both is supposed in the parable.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
