Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 11:28

_ _ Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest — Incomparable, ravishing sounds these — if ever such were heard in this weary, groaning world! What gentleness, what sweetness is there in the very style of the invitation — “Hither to Me”; and in the words, “All ye that toil and are burdened,” the universal wretchedness of man is depicted, on both its sides — the active and the passive forms of it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 11:25-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 11:28

Come to me — Here he shows to whom he is pleased to reveal these things to the weary and heavy laden; ye that labour — After rest in God: and are heavy laden — With the guilt and power of sin: and I will give you rest — I alone (for none else can) will freely give you (what ye cannot purchase) rest from the guilt of sin by justification, and from the power of sin by sanctification.
