Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 25:20

_ _ Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents; behold, I have gained besides them five talents more — How beautifully does this illustrate what the beloved disciple says of “boldness in the day of judgment,” and his desire that “when He shall appear we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming!” (1 John 4:17; 1 John 2:28).
