Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 11:29

_ _ Take my yoke upon you — the yoke of subjection to Jesus.

_ _ and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls — As Christ’s willingness to empty Himself to the uttermost of His Father’s requirements was the spring of ineffable repose to His own Spirit, so in the same track does He invite all to follow Him, with the assurance of the same experience.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 11:25-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you — Believe in me: receive me as your prophet, priest, and king. For I am meek and lowly in heart — Meek toward all men, lowly toward God: and ye shall find rest — Whoever therefore does not find rest of soul, is not meek and lowly. The fault is not in the yoke of Christ: but in thee, who hast not taken it upon thee. Nor is it possible for any one to be discontented, but through want of meekness or lowliness.
