Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 8:18

_ _ how ye — in Mark 4:24, “what ye hear.” The one implies the other. The precept is very weighty.

_ _ seemeth to have — or, “thinketh that he hath” (Margin). The “having” of Matthew 13:12 (on which see), and this “thinking he hath,” are not different. Hanging loosely on him, and not appropriated, it is and is not his.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 8:4-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 8:18

The word commonly translated seemeth, wherever it occurs, does not weaken, but greatly strengthens the sense. Matthew 13:12; Mark 4:25; Luke 19:26.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 8:18

(3) Take (f) heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that (g) which he seemeth to have.

(3) Heavenly gifts are lost when one is sparing with them, and increase when one is liberal with them.

(f) That is, with what minds you come to hear the word, and how you behave yourselves when you have heard it.

(g) Either to himself, or to others, or to both: for there are none so proud as these fellows, if it were possible to see those things which they disguise: neither are there those that deceive the simple more than they do.
