    English Revised Version (ERV)

    Fear not therefore; ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 10:31

    Fear ye not - ye are of more value - None can estimate the value of a soul, for which Christ has given his blood and life! Have confidence in his goodness; for he who so dearly purchased thee will miraculously preserve and save thee. Did the poet intend to contradict Christ when he said: -

    "He sees with equal eye, as God of all,

    A Hero perish, or a Sparrow fall?"

    How cold and meagre is this shallow deistical saying! But could the poet mean, that a sparrow is of as much worth in the sight of God, who regards (if we may believe him) things only in general, as an immortal soul, purchased by the sacrifice of Christ?
