Matthew 20:14

14 Take that thine is, and go thy way*: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

Matthew 20:14 Meaning and Commentary

Matthew 20:14

Take that thine is
By agreement, and go thy way; out of my sight, give me no more trouble on this head; which looks like a dismissal from his service, and after privileges; and was true of many among the Jews, who were only nominal professors, and from whom the Gospel and ordinances of it were taken:

I will give unto this last
man that was called, and sent into the vineyard,

even as unto thee;
the same outward privileges, besides special grace, and eternal glory, which it looks as if the other had not.

Matthew 20:14 In-Context

12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
