A Commentary, Critical, Practical, and Explanatory on the Old and New Testaments, by Robert Jamieson, A.R. Fausset and David Brown [1882]
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass--the "herbage."

of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven--wild flowers cut with the grass, withering by the heat, and used for fuel. (See Jam 1:11).

shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?--The argument here is something fresh. Gorgeous as is the array of the flowers that deck the fields, surpassing all artificial human grandeur, it is for but a brief moment; you are ravished with it to-day, and to-morrow it is gone; your own hands have seized and cast it into the oven: Shall, then, God's children, so dear to Him, and instinct with a life that cannot die, be left naked? He does not say, Shall they not be more beauteously arrayed? but, Shall He not much more clothe them? that being all He will have them regard as secured to them (compare Heb 13:5). The expression, "Little-faithed ones," which our Lord applies once and again to His disciples (Mat 8:26; Mat 14:31; Mat 16:8), can hardly be regarded as rebuking any actual manifestations of unbelief at that early period, and before such an audience. It is His way of gently chiding the spirit of unbelief, so natural even to the best, who are surrounded by a world of sense, and of kindling a generous desire to shake it off.
8 Which when [1161] Jesus [2424] perceived [1097], he said [2036] unto them [846], O ye of little faith [3640], why [5101] reason ye [1260] among [1722] yourselves [1438], because [3754] ye have brought [2983] no [3756] bread [740]?
31 And [1161] immediately [2112] Jesus [2424] stretched forth [1614] his hand [5495], and caught [1949] him [846], and [2532] said [3004] unto him [846], O thou of little faith [3640], wherefore [1519] [5101] didst thou doubt [1365]?
26 And [2532] he saith [3004] unto them [846], Why [5101] are ye [2075] fearful [1169], O ye of little faith [3640]? Then [5119] he arose [1453], and rebuked [2008] the winds [417] and [2532] the sea [2281]; and [2532] there was [1096] a great [3173] calm [1055].
5 Let your conversation [5158] be without covetousness [866]; and be content [714] with such things as ye have [3918]: for [1063] he [846] hath said [2046], I will never [3364] leave [447] thee [4571], nor [3761] [3364] forsake [1459] thee [4571].
11 For [1063] the sun [2246] is no sooner risen [393] with [4862] a burning heat [2742], but [2532] it withereth [3583] the grass [5528], and [2532] the flower [438] thereof [846] falleth [1601], and [2532] the grace [2143] of the fashion [4383] of it [846] perisheth [622]: so [3779] also [2532] shall [3133] the rich man [4145] fade away [3133] in [1722] his [846] ways [4197].
