This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

[34. Ὡς ἄνθρωπος) D. Hauber has ably proved that this passage is parallel, not to Mat 25:14, but to Mat 24:45.-Harm., p. 484].-τὴν ἐξουσίαν, authority) This He gave to His servants conjointly, as is evident from the antithesis, and to every man) καὶ ἑκάστῳ. The authority so assigned was a great authority: Mat 21:33.-καὶ) also [even].-τῷ θυρωρῷ, to the porter) [He gave charge], inasmuch as the porter is one who keeps watch even for others, and whose duty it is to rouse them up.
