15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 17:15

Commentary on Luke 17:11-19

(Read Luke 17:11-19)

A sense of our spiritual leprosy should make us very humble whenever we draw near to Christ. It is enough to refer ourselves to the compassions of Christ, for they fail not. We may look for God to meet us with mercy, when we are found in the way of obedience. Only one of those who were healed returned to give thanks. It becomes us, like him, to be very humble in thanksgivings, as well as in prayers. Christ noticed the one who thus distinguished himself, he was a Samaritan. The others only got the outward cure, he alone got the spiritual blessing.
