Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 13:36-38.


Matthew 13:38

_ _ The tares are the children of the wicked one — As this sowing could only be “while men slept,” no blame seems intended, and certainly none is charged upon “the servants”; it is probably just the dress of the parable.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 13:24-43.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 13:38

The good seed are the children of the kingdom — That is, the children of God, the righteous.
