Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 20:10

_ _ But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more — This is that calculating, mercenary spirit which had peeped out — though perhaps very slightly — in Peter’s question (Matthew 19:27), and which this parable was designed once for all to put down among the servants of Christ.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 20:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 20:10

The first supposed they should have received more — Probably the first here may mean the Jews, who supposed they should always be preferred before the Gentiles.
