    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 4:24

    And unto you that hear shall more be given - This clause is wanting in DG, Coptic, and four copies of the Itala; and in others, where it is extant, it is variously written. Griesbach has left it out of the text, and supposes it to be a gloss, Whosoever hath, to him shall be given.

    Barnes' Notes on Mark 4:24

    Take heed what ye hear - Or, consider well what you hear. Make a good improvement of it.

    With what measure ye mete ... - You shall be treated according to the use you make of your opportunities of learning. If you consider it well, and make a good improvement of what you hear, you shall be well rewarded. If not, your reward shall be small. This is a proverbial expression. See it explained in the notes at Matthew 7:1-2.

    Mete - Measure. With what measure ye measure.

    Unto you that hear - To you who are "attentive," and who improve what you hear.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 4:24

With what measure you mete - That is, according to the improvement you make of what you have heard, still farther assistance shall be given. And to you that hear - That is, with improvement.
