Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Beggar

See on poor, Matthew 5:3.

Lazarus

Lit., was thrown: east carelessly down by his bearers and left there.

Gate (πυλῶνα)

The gateway, often separated from the house or temple. In Matthew 26:71, it is rendered porch.

Full of sores (εἱλκωμένος)

Only here in New Testament. The regular medical term for to be ulcerated. John uses the kindred noun ἕλκος, an ulcer (Revelation 16:2). See next verse.
