Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

A certain (μία)

Not a good translation. Lit., one as distinguished from the many rich. Better, simply the indefinite article, as Rev.

Poor (πτωχὴ)

See on Matthew 5:3.

Mites (λεπτὰ)

From λεπτός, peeled, husked; and thence thin or fine. Therefore of a very small or thin coin.

Farthing (κοδράντης)

A Latin word, quadrans, or a quarter of a Roman as; quadrans meaning a fourth, as farthing is fourthing.
