14 The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 16:14

Commentary on Luke 16:13-18

(Read Luke 16:13-18)

To this parable our Lord added a solemn warning. Ye cannot serve God and the world, so divided are the two interests. When our Lord spoke thus, the covetous Pharisees treated his instructions with contempt. But he warned them, that what they contended for as the law, was a wresting of its meaning: this our Lord showed in a case respecting divorce. There are many covetous sticklers for the forms of godliness, who are the bitterest enemies to its power, and try to set others against the truth.
