Matthew 6:30


And if this is how God clothes the wild grass, 1  which is here today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, 2  won’t he clothe you even more, 3  you people of little faith?

NET © Notes

tn Grk “grass of the field.”

tn Grk “into the oven.” The expanded translation “into the fire to heat the oven” has been used to avoid misunderstanding; most items put into modern ovens are put there to be baked, not burned.

sn The oven was most likely a rounded clay oven used for baking bread, which was heated by burning wood and dried grass.

sn The phrase even more is a typical form of rabbinic argumentation, from the lesser to the greater. If God cares for the little things, surely he will care for the more important things.
