Luke 7:25 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Gorgeously apparelled (ἐν ἱματισμῷ ἐνδόξῳ)

Lit., in splendid clothing.

Live delicately (τρυφῇ ὑπάρχοντες)

Lit., are in luxury. On ὑπάρχοντες, are, see on James 2:15. On τρυφῇ, luxury, see on 2 Peter 2:13, the only other place where it occurs. Compare the kindred verb τρυφάω, to live in luxury, James 5:5.

Kings' courts (βασιλείοις)

Only here in New Testament. Often rendered palaces. Sometimes, in later Greek, applied to a capital or royal city, a royal treasury, and a royal diadem.
