This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 10:23. Περιβλεψάμενος, having looked round about) We have often the look [countenance] of Christ described, corresponding as it did to His inward feeling, and adapted to the inward feelings of His hearers: Comp. Mar 5:21; Mar 5:27.-πῶς, how) The proposition stated is, A rich man is with difficulty saved: the subject of the proposition is limited in Mar 10:24 [They that trust in riches being substituted for, they that have riches]: the predicate is enlarged [amplified: Mar 10:25 being the amplification of the simple predicate, enter into the kingdom of God]. They [the subject and predicate of the proposition, A rich man is with difficulty saved] differ in the abstract; they for the most part agree in the concrete.[15]-οἱ τὰ χρήματα ἔχοντες, they that have riches) The few have most of the wealth of the world.

[15] As a matter of fact, and not reasoning a priori, rich men are with difficulty saved.-ED. and TRANSL.
