Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 25:34

_ _ Then shall the King — Magnificent title, here for the first and only time, save in parabolical language, given to Himself by the Lord Jesus, and that on the eve of His deepest humiliation! It is to intimate that in then addressing the heirs of the kingdom, He will put on all His regal majesty.

_ _ say unto them on his right hand, Come — the same sweet word with which He had so long invited all the weary and heavy laden to come unto Him for rest. Now it is addressed exclusively to such as have come and found rest. It is still, “Come,” and to “rest” too; but to rest in a higher style, and in another region.

_ _ ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world — The whole story of this their blessedness is given by the apostle, in words which seem but an expression of these: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ; according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” They were chosen from everlasting to the possession and enjoyment of all spiritual blessings in Christ, and so chosen in order to be holy and blameless in love. This is the holy love whose practical manifestations the King is about to recount in detail; and thus we see that their whole life of love to Christ is the fruit of an eternal purpose of love to them in Christ.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 25:31-46.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 25:34

Inherit the kingdom — Purchased by my blood, for all who have believed in me with the faith which wrought by love. Prepared for you — On purpose for you. May it not be probably inferred from hence, that man was not created merely to fill up the places of the fallen angels?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye (f) blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

(f) Blessed and happy, upon whom my Father has most abundantly bestowed his benefits.
