THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE,

For SEPTEMBER, 1812.

Mr. URBAN,

Sept. 7.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures WHEN I was, not long since, upon earth, &c. but lay up for your

66

reading the late Mr. (Soame) Jenyns's Cursory Observations on several Passages of the New Testament," I paid some attention to his notice of Luke xvi. 9; which he considers as an ironical Reproof of the Pharisees, and not an Exhortation or serious direction for conduct. I rose from his book, fully agreeing with him in his previous observation, that "no Commentator, antient or modern, has YET been able to give us a satisfactory explanation of this passage." I have, since, been looking at the new Edition of Bowyer's Conjectures, and I there find that Professor Schultz also considers what is said as "ironical, and consequently negative."--But did Irony ever proceed from the mouth of the Divine Speaker? I believe, not. Be this as it may, I feel an inclination examine if the passage will not admit another interpretation. I would premise, that xxyw, in the words xayw yw, appears to me plainly adversative: it is Ego VERO dico vobis, &c. That it is often thus used, we have the strong authority of Leigh's Critica Sacra.-We may therefore expect the ra you to contain a precept opposite, in tendency, to the example which it refers to. Looking thus at Tonate ἑαυτοῖς φίλες ΕΚ τα μαμμωνα της αδιI am tempted to understand it, "make to yourselves friends ELSEWHERE THAN FROM the mammon

[ocr errors]

of unrighteousness," &c. &c. This plain exhortation (PERSONE loquenti omnino CONVENIENS) perfectly accords with numberless Texts of Scripture. I will instance two:

selves treasures in Heaven, &c. &c. Mat. vi. 19, 20: And, The FRIENDSHIP of the world is ENMITY with God, &c. James iv. 4. I may add a third Text, reported by St. Matthew, as built on the former of these, but connected, by St. Luke, with the passage we are considering: Ye cannot serve God and Mam

sense,

How desirable then is the "Make to yourselves friends altogether different from the Mammon of Unrighteousness;" i. e. Make God your friend, by faith and righteousness; make HIM your friend who goes before you to prepare a place for you in his Father's House, and there to receive you unto himself! John xiv. 3, 4-But how is this desirable interpretation of the words εκ το Μαμμωνά κ.τ.λ. το be justified? No Commentator even glances at it: nor is it supported by any interpretation of the Preposition ex in the Lexicon of Schoettgenius, Stockius, or Parkhurst.Finding this to be so, I turned, rather hopeless, to Schleusner, and, præter spem, I found him speaking to the point. In his 19th interpretation of this Preposition, having explained ex by sine, and having thus applied it to James ii. 18. (εx TWY YW 08, WITHOUT thy works) as simplicissima ratio locum explicandi ;" he proceeds to observe,

[ocr errors]

nec desunt loca, e Græcis Scriptoribus, in quibus ex pro w ponitur." Here then, I say, is ground for my construction of the passage. — It may be asked, Has Luke thus used EX upon any other occasion? I think he has. The same construction of the Preposition seems at least de. sirable,
