This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 10:29. Ἢ ἀδελφοὺς, or brethren) The goods which are left (for Christ’s sake) are enumerated disjunctively [“house or brethren or sisters,” etc.]: the goods, which are granted in reward, are enumerated copulatively [“houses and brethren and sisters,” etc., Mar 10:30]: See following verse. Observe the rich plentifulness of the reward, illustrating the goodness of the Lord.-ἕνεκεν ἐμοῦ, for My sake) whilst I am in the world.-ἕνεκεν τοῦ εὐαγγελίου, for the sake of the Gospel) In order that he may preach My name after My ascension. For the sake of the world, many leave many things.[16]

[16] How much more ought they for Christ’s sake!-ED. and TRANSL.
