5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually come and attack me!' "

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 18:5

Commentary on Luke 18:1-8

(Read Luke 18:1-8)

All God's people are praying people. Here earnest steadiness in prayer for spiritual mercies is taught. The widow's earnestness prevailed even with the unjust judge: she might fear lest it should set him more against her; but our earnest prayer is pleasing to our God. Even to the end there will still be ground for the same complaint of weakness of faith.
