Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMatthew 5:40
- Thy coat ... thy cloke also (ton xitwna sou kai to imation).
- The "coat" is really a sort of shirt or undergarment and would be demanded at law. A robber would seize first the outer garment or cloke (one coat). If one loses the undergarment at law, the outer one goes also (the more valuable one).
