And Jesus answered and said, verily I say unto you
This evangelist omits what Matthew relates; that whereas Peter, and his fellow disciples had followed Christ in the present time, hereafter when he appeared in his glory, they should sit upon twelve thrones, and judge the twelve tribes of Israel; see ( Matthew 19:28 ) , and where it is added to the same sense as here;
there is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sister, or
father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and
for the sake of preaching, or professing Christ, and his Gospel. The word "wife" is left out in the Vulgate Latin version, perhaps because it is not repeated in the following verse; but all copies, and other versions have it; (See Gill on Matthew 19:29).
