    For I feared thee, because thou
    art an austere man: thou takest up what thou didst not lay down, and thou reapest that which thou didst not sow.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:21

    porque tuve miedo de ti, que eres hombre recio; tomas lo que no pusiste, y siegas lo que no sembraste.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. For I
    feared thee , etc.] Not with a right fear, with a fear of his goodness, who had bestowed such an excellent gift on him; for this would have taught him to have departed from evil, and have put him on doing his master's will, and making use of his gift to his glory: his fear was not of the right kind, and was ill grounded, as appears by what follows: because thou art an austere man ; cruel and uncompassionate to his servants, and hard to be pleased; than which nothing is more false, since it is evident, that Christ is compassionate both to the bodies and souls of men; is a merciful high priest, and is one that has compassion on the ignorant, and them that are out of the way, and cannot but be touched with the feeling of his people's infirmities; and is mild and gentle in his whole deportment, and in all his administrations: thou takest up that thou layest not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow ; suggesting, that he was covetous of that which did not belong to him, and withheld what was due to his servants, and rigorously exacted service that could not be performed; a most iniquitous charge, since none so liberal as he, giving gifts, grace and glory, freely; imposing no grievous commands on men; his yoke being easy, and his burden light; never sending a man to a warfare at his own charge; but always giving grace and strength proportionable to the service he calls to, and rewarding his servants in a most bountiful manner, infinitely beyond their deserts.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-27 - This
    parable is like that of the talents, Mt 25. Those that are calle to Christ, he furnishes with gifts needful for their business; and from those to whom he gives power, he expects service. The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal, 1Co 12:7. And a every one has received the gift, so let him minister the same, 1P 4:10. The account required, resembles that in the parable of the talents; and the punishment of the avowed enemies of Christ, as well a of false professors, is shown. The principal difference is, that the pound given to each seems to point out the gift of the gospel, which is the same to all who hear it; but the talents, distributed more or less seem to mean that God gives different capacities and advantages to men by which this one gift of the gospel may be differently improved.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21. Austere (austhrov). From auw, to
    dry. Dry, and thence hard. See on hard, Matt. xxv. 24.

    Sow (espeirav). See on strawed, Matt. xxv. 24.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    19:21 {I feared} (efoboumen). Imperfect middle, I continued to fear. {Austere} (austeros). Old Greek word from au", to dry up. Reproduced in Latin _austeros_ and English _austere_. It means rough to the taste, stringent. Here only in the N.T. Compare skleros (hard) in #Mt 25:24. "Harsh in flavour, qen in disposition" (Bruce). {Thou layedst not down} (ouk eqekas). Probably a proverb for a grasping profiteer.
