    World English Bible

    "He also who had received the one talent came and said, 'Lord, I knew you that you are a
    hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter.

    Douay-Rheims - Matthew 25:24

    VERSE (24) -
    Mt 7:21 Lu 6:46

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:24

    Y llegando tambin el que había recibido un talento, dijo: Seor, te conocía que eres hombre duro, que siegas donde no sembraste, y recoges donde no esparciste;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. Then he which had received the one
    talent came , etc.] For he that has the least gifts, is accountable for them; and therefore ought to make use of them to the good of his fellow creatures, and the interest of his Lord and Master; though these often lie neglected, and frivolous, and even wicked pretences are formed to excuse such neglect, as here: and said, Lord, I knew that thou art an hard man ; he calls him Lord, though he had not served him, and pretends he knew him; but if he had, he would have had a true affection for him, faith in him, and would have observed his commands; and he would also have appeared altogether lovely to him, and of an amiable character, and not in such a light as he represents him; which makes it a clear case, that he was ignorant of him, or he would never have said, that he was an hard, severe, or austere man; one very difficult of being pleased, cruel and uncompassionate to his servants, unjustly withholding from them what was due unto them, and rigorously exacting service that could not be performed by them: all which is the reverse of Christs true character; who accepts of the meanest services of his people: and takes what is done, though ever so little, as even a cup of cold water, given to the least of his disciples, as done to himself; is merciful and compassionate, both to the bodies and souls of men; and is not unrighteous to forget any labour of love, shown to him or his; and makes his strength perfect in the weakness of his servants, and his grace always to be sufficient for them: but this wicked servant goes on to traduce him, and adds, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed : which seem to be proverbial expressions; (see John 4:37), describing either a covetous man, that is desirous of that which does not belong to him; or an hard master that requires work to be done, and gives neither tools nor matter to work with; like the Egyptian task masters, who demanded the full tale of bricks, but gave no straw: whereas Christ is neither niggardly, nor exacting; he requires nothing that is not his, and gives his grace, and bestows his gifts liberally, and upbraids not; nor does he call any to service, of whatsoever sort, but he gives them grace, strength, and abilities, proportionate to it; and as he has promised, he makes it good, that as their day is, so shall their strength be.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-30 -
    Christ keeps no servants to be idle: they have received their all from him, and have nothing they can call their own but sin. Our receivin from Christ is in order to our working for him. The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. The day of accoun comes at last. We must all be reckoned with as to what good we have go to our own souls, and have done to others, by the advantages we have enjoyed. It is not meant that the improving of natural powers can entitle a man to Divine grace. It is the real Christian's liberty an privilege to be employed as his Redeemer's servant, in promoting his glory, and the good of his people: the love of Christ constrains him to live no longer to himself, but to Him that died for him, and ros again. Those who think it impossible to please God, and in vain to serve him, will do nothing to purpose in religion. They complain tha He requires of them more than they are capable of, and punishes the for what they cannot help. Whatever they may pretend, the fact is, the dislike the character and work of the Lord. The slothful servant i sentenced to be deprived of his talent. This may be applied to the blessings of this life; but rather to the means of grace. Those wh know not the day of their visitation, shall have the things that belon to their peace hid from their eyes. His doom is, to be cast into oute darkness. It is a usual way of expressing the miseries of the damned i hell. Here, as in what was said to the faithful servants, our Saviou goes out of the parable into the thing intended by it, and this serve as a key to the whole. Let us not envy sinners, or covet any of their perishing possessions.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24.
    Hard (sklhrov). Stronger than the austere (austhrov) of Luke xix. 21 (see there), which is sometimes used in a good sense, as this never is. It is an epithet given to a surface which is at once dry and hard.

    Strawed (dieskorpisav). Rev., didst scatter. Not referring to the sowing of seed, for that would be saying the same thing twice. The scattering refers to the winnowing of the loosened sheaves spread out upon the threshing-floor. "The word," as Trench observes "could scarcely be applied to the measured and orderly scattering of the sower's seed. It is rather the dispersing, making to fly in every direction." Hence used of the pursuit of a routed enemy (Luke i. 51); of the prodigal scattering his good; making the money fly, as we say (Luke xv. 13); of the wolf scattering the sheep (Matt. xxvi. 31). Wyc., spread abroad.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    25:24 {That had received the one talent} (ho to talenton eilph"s). Note the perfect active participle to emphasize the fact that he still had it. In verse #20 we have ho--labwn (aorist active participle). {I knew thee} (egnwn se). Second aorist active indicative. Experimental knowledge (ginwskw) and proleptical use of se. {A hard man} (skleros). Harsh, stern, rough man, worse than austros in #Lu 19:21, grasping and ungenerous. {Where thou didst not scatter} (hothen ou dieskorpisas). But this scattering was the chaff from which wheat was winnowed, not the scattering of seed.
