New Defender's Study Bible Notes
12:6 two farthings. See note on Matthew 10:29. Today the value of “two farthings” would be perhaps fifty cents. Also see note on Matthew 5:26.
12:7 more value. The lesson of Job 38–39 is relevant. These chapters describe in detail the providential care of God for His animal creation. Job was concerned that God had forgotten him, but God had reasons for permitting Job’s sufferings of which Job was unaware. No matter what problems may come, we may be confident that God cares and is in control (Romans 8:28).
