    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 25:29

    Unto every one that hath shall be given - See on Matthew 13:12 (note).

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 25:29

    For unto every one that hath shall be given - See the notes at Matthew 13:12. This seems to be a proverbial expression. It means, whosoever rightly improves what is committed to him shall receive more, or shall be rewarded; but he that misimproves what is committed to him shall not be rewarded. In pecuniary matters in the literal sense of this parable they who improve their money by industry or merchandise increase it. They who do not who are indolent or vicious lose what they did possess, and it goes into the hands of the faithful and industrious. In the spiritual sense of the parable it means that they who are faithful shall be rewarded - not, however, that anything shall be taken from the unfaithful and given to them; and it means also that the unfaithful and indolent shall be taken away from their privileges and punished.

    Wesley's Notes on Matthew 25:29

    25:29 To every one that hath shall he given - So close does God keep to this stated rule, from the beginning to the end of the world. Matt 13:12.
