Matthew 18:26

_ _ The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him — or did humble obeisance to him.

_ _ saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all — This was just an acknowledgment of the justice of the claim made against him, and a piteous imploration of mercy.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 18:26

The servant therefore fell down, and (n) worshipped him, saying, Lord, (o) have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

(n) This was a polite reverence which was very common in the East.

(o) Yield not too much to your anger against me: so is God called in the Scripture, slow to anger, that is to say, gentle, and one that refrains his fierce wrath, (Psalms 86:5); patient and of great mercy.
