Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 25:15

_ _ And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one — While the proportion of gifts is different in each, the same fidelity is required of all, and equally rewarded. And thus there is perfect equity.

_ _ to every man according to his several ability — his natural capacity as enlisted in Christ’s service, and his opportunities in providence for employing the gifts bestowed on him.

_ _ and straightway took his journey — Compare Matthew 21:33, where the same departure is ascribed to God, after setting up the ancient economy. In both cases, it denotes the leaving of men to the action of all those spiritual laws and influences of Heaven under which they have been graciously placed for their own salvation and the advancement of their Lord’s kingdom.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
