Βλέπετε τί ἀκούετε, See [take heed], what ye hear) The seeing organ, which is the more noble sense, directs and modifies the impressions of the hearing: it is the eye, not the ear, that can move itself.-τί, what) We are hearing the word, which is the word of God; account that as a high privilege: Or else the what is to be resolved into the how of Luke: see to it, what kind of a hearing you render to the word.-ἐν ᾧ μέτρῳ, with what measure) The measure alluded to is the heart, with its capabilities, desires, anxiety to impart blessings received to others, and obedience.-προστεθήσεται, it shall be added [more shall be given]) That ye may be not only hearers, but partakers.-τοῖς) as concerns the hearers;[39] comp. on Rom 2:8, as respects such datives. [Engl. Vers. makes the dat. follow προστεθ., “more shall be given to you that fear.”]
