09.02.01 Lk. 11:33-36
33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in the cellar or under a basket, but on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see its light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light. But when it is bad, your body is also full of darkness. 35 Take care then, that the light in you is not darkness. 36 If, therefore, your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be entirely illuminated, as when a lamp shines its light on you.”
“When your eye is good … But when it is bad.” These two phrases are examples of colloquialism, with meanings similar to those of neighboring cultures. A person with “good eyes” is a generous person and one with “bad eyes” is stingy.
