Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 25:30

_ _ And cast ye — cast ye out.

_ _ the unprofitable servant — the useless servant, that does his Master no service.

_ _ into outer darkness — the darkness which is outside. On this expression see on Matthew 22:13.

_ _ there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth — See on Matthew 13:42.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 25:14-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 25:30

Cast ye the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness — For what? what had he done? It is true he had not done good. But neither is he charged with doing any harm. Why, for this reason, for barely doing no harm, he is consigned to outer darkness. He is pronounced a wicked, because he was a slothful, an unprofitable servant. So mere harmlessness, on which many build their hope of salvation, was the cause of his damnation! There shall be the weeping — Of the careless thoughtless sinner; and the gnashing of teeth — Of the proud and stubborn. The same great truth, that there is no such thing as negative goodness, is in this chapter shown three times: In the parable of the virgins; In the still plainer parable of the servants, who had received the talents; and In a direct unparabolical declaration of the manner wherein our Lord will proceed at the last day. The several parts of each of these exactly answers each other, only each rises above the preceding.
