Matthew 25:37 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, etc. - This barbarous expression, an hungered, should be banished out of the text, wheresoever it occurs, and the simple word hungry substituted for it. Whatever is done for Christ's sake, is done through Christ's grace; and he who does the work attributes to Jesus both the will and the power by which the work was done, and seeks and expects the kingdom of heaven not as a reward, but as a gift of pure unmerited mercy. Yet, while workers together with his grace, God attributes to them that which they do through his influence, as if they had done it independently of him. God has a right to form what estimate he pleases of the works wrought through himself: but man is never safe except when he attributes all to his Maker.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'
When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?
