Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 9:38

_ _ Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest — the great Lord and Proprietor of all. Compare John 15:1, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman.”

_ _ that he will send forth labourers into his harvest — The word properly means “thrust forth”; but this emphatic sense disappears in some places, as in Matthew 9:25, and John 10:4 — “When He putteth forth His own sheep.” (See on Matthew 4:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 9:35-38.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 9:38

The Lord of the harvest — Whose peculiar work and office it is, and who alone is able to do it: that he would thrust forth — for it is an employ not pleasing to flesh and blood; so full of reproach, labour, danger, temptation of every kind, that nature may well be averse to it. Those who never felt this, never yet knew what it is to be labourers in Christ's harvest. He sends them forth, when he calls them by his Spirit, furnishes them with grace and gifts for the work, and makes a way for them to be employed therein.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 9:38

Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will (i) send forth labourers into his harvest.

(i) Literally, "cast them out": for men are very slow in a work so holy.
