But woe unto you that are rich (Plhn ouai umin toi plousioi). Sharp contrast (plhn). As a matter of fact the rich Pharisees and Sadducees were the chief opposers of Christ as of the early disciples later ( James 5:1-6 ). Ye have received (apecete). Receipt in full apecw means as the papyri show. Consolation (paraklhsin). From parakalew, to call to one's side, to encourage, to help, to cheer.
