Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 25:35

_ _ For I was an hungered ... thirsty ... a stranger, etc.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 25:31-46.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 25:35

I was hungry, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink — All these works of outward mercy suppose faith and love, and must needs he accompanied with works of spiritual mercy. But works of this kind the Judge could not mention in the same manner. He could not say, I was in error, and ye recalled me to the truth; I was in sin, and ye brought me to repentance. In prison — Prisoners need to be visited above all others, as they are commonly solitary and forsaken by the rest of the world.
