This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Sit down (ἀναπεσεῖν)

Literally, recline.

Grass (χόρτος)

Originally an enclosure. Thus Homer speaks of Peleus offering a sacrifice, αὐλῆς ἐν χόρτῳ, in the enclosure of the court (“Iliad,” xi., 774). Hence a feeding-place, and so grass, provender. The sense is merely that of our abstract pasture. Matthew and Mark mention the grass, Mark with the epithet green. Wyc., hay.
