Studies In Matthew
MATTHEW CHAPTER NINE
Jesus heals the paralyzed man.
In verse 4 Christ says he knows the thoughts (Psalms 139:1-2)
1. O Lord, thou hast searched
me, and known me.
2. Thou knowest my downsitting and
mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
V 9 Matthew the tax collector,
V 10 Matthew’s house (see)
And it came to pass, that, as Jesus
sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together
with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.
And after these things he went forth,
and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he
said unto him, Follow me.
28. And he left all, rose
up, and followed him.
29. And Levi made him a great feast
in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others
that sat down with them.
The righteous –
As it is written, There is none righteous,
no, not one:
1. The fool hath said in
his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable
works, there is none that doeth good.
2. The Lord looked down
from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did
understand, and seek God.
3. They are all gone aside, they are
all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
V14-17 The question of fasting
Christ says that at this time the disciples
are with the bridegroom, but there will be a day when the bridegroom will
This man is called Jairus:
41. And, behold, there came a man named
Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus'
feet, and besought him that he would come into his house:
Jesus tells the woman that her faith
had made her whole.
Jesus raises the woman. He states
that she just sleeps. They laughed.
V27-31 Two Blind men receive sight
Thou son of David shows that these men
saw him as the Messiah. Matthew 1:1
1. The book of the generation of Jesus
Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
32. He shall be great, and shall
be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him
the throne of his father David:
33. And he shall reign over the house
of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
V32-35 A possessed man speaks
A thought that the harvest needs laborers.
MATTHEW CHAPTER TEN
Christ gave them a power to perform
The names of the apostles are arranged
in six pairs of two to equal 12.
Peter heads the list as in:
KJV Mark 3:14-16
14. And he ordained twelve, that
they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
15. And to have power to
heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
16. And Simon he surnamed
KJV Luke 6:13-14
13. And when it was day,
he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also
he named apostles;
14. Simon, (whom he also
named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
KJV Acts 1:13
13. And when they were come in, they
went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John,
and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son
of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.
The list is started the same as in
KJV Matthew 4:18-22
18. And Jesus, walking by the
sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother,
casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
19. And he saith unto them,
Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20. And they straightway
left their nets, and followed him.
21. And going on from thence,
he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother,
in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called
22. And they immediately left the ship
and their father, and followed him.
Bartholomew is thought to have been
Nathanael because of his reference with being with Philip.
KJV John 1:45-50
45. Philip findeth Nathanael,
and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the
prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
46. And Nathanael said
unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto
him, Come and see.
47. Jesus saw Nathanael
coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is
48. Nathanael saith unto
him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that
Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
49. Nathanael answered
and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of
50. Jesus answered and said unto him,
Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou?
thou shalt see greater things than these.
Matthew the publican was the tax collector.
James the son of Alpheus was also
called James the less and it is thought that his mother was the sister
of Mary mother of Jesus whose name was also Mary.
Lebbeus, whose surname is Thaddeus,
was also called Judas is
KJV Luke 6:16
16. And Judas the brother of James,
and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
Judas Iscariot whose name has definition
according to Hebrew as Iscara (the one who was strangled).
GO to the lost of Israel and preach
Shake the dust off your feet is simply
a symbol of rejection. The Jews wouldn’t accept.
Warning of Persecutions
More instruction : The disciple is not
above his master, do not fear the unknown, preach in light and on housetops,
do not fear physical but spiritual death, and continue to confess Christ
as the Lord.
VERSES 34-39 - NOT PEACE BUT A SWORD
VS> 35-36a mention of
KJV Micah 7:6-7
6. For the son dishonoureth
the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in
law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.
7. Therefore I will look unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
Put no one above the LORD.
Take up your cross, follow him and
give your life.
MATTHEW CHAPTER ELEVEN
John the Baptist sent two of his disciples
to ask about Jesus.
It is logical here that John the Baptist
would be concerned for Christ and if he is the fine. The allocation
that the disciples here asked if Christ truly was the ONE, was likely the
disciples of John’s question considering what John would have seen in Christ’
Yet, Christ left in prison and this
may have been the question here. Why with all of the power of Christ
did he leave John there? We see in Christ’ baptism that John saw
God declare the Christ was his son.
KJV Matthew 3:13-17
13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee
to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
14 But John forbad him, saying,
I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
15 And Jesus answering said unto
him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.
Then he suffered him.
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized,
went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened
unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting
17 And lo a voice from heaven,
saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Christ answers the questions with some
Old Testament prophecy being fulfilled. This to show that he was
the Messiah. Not that John surely needed to be taught, but to be
reminded. John at this point had been imprisoned for approx. 12 months.
KJV Isaiah 35:5-6
5. Then the eyes of the
blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6. Then shall the lame man leap as
an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters
break out, and streams in the desert.
Jesus speaks to the multitudes concerning
Christ states by question that John
was not a reed. He was strong and stable. Along the Jordan
reeds grew in great numbers and were always blowing in the wind.
This was to simply state that John was solid and not swaying one way or
The fact stated that John was not going
to be pleasantly dressed in a robe fit for a king. Again, Christ
is teaching not to expect those things for an earthly kingdom.
A reference from
KJV Malachi 3:1
1. Behold, I will send my messenger,
and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall
suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye
delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
V11 The expression of thought here of
a man is born of woman, simply to mean that all men are born of a woman
and are equal in that fact.
KJV Job 15:7-14
7. Art thou the first man that
was born? or wast thou made before the hills?
8. Hast thou heard the
secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?
9. What knowest thou, that
we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us?
10. With us are both the
grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.
11. Are the consolations
of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee?
12. Why doth thine heart
carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at,
13. That thou turnest thy
spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?
14. What is man, that he should be
clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
This is based on the context of the
previous verses and the following verses notices change in the Kingdom.
The kingdom form the time John started his work, marking a changing of
the times in the law of the Testaments, was under some fire. There
were those expecting an earthly benefit from this so called Kingdom.
The reference to Elijah being the forerunner and previous statements of
John being the preparing figure of the New Law shows a time in change.
KJV Malachi 4:5-6
5. Behold, I will send
you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day
of the Lord:
6. And he shall turn the
heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to
their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Christ compares the people then to those
who would be children playing a game at a wedding, and a funeral (dancing
Then says that John was a prophet that
lived as a prophet. He attended no ceremonies, nor ate or drank wine.
Yet, they propose that Christ is guilty of such charges.
Jesus foretells of judgment and condemns
certain cities of Galilee that repents not seeing the Kingdom coming.
Chorazin, which was north of Capernaum, about 5 miles. Bethasaida
on the west side of the Sea of Galilee about three miles southeast of Chorazin.
Tyre and Sidon, which were North West of Galilee, about 60-80 miles on
the Mediterranean Sea.
Capernaum is compared to Sodom, which
was destroyed for Homosexuality and unrighteousness of the flesh.
It says that they had opportunities that if Sodom had would have not been
destroyed. Capernaum had several great works done there since Christ
was there after leaving Nazareth.
KJV Matthew 4:12-13
12. Now when Jesus had
heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
13. And leaving Nazareth,
he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders
of Zabulon and Nephthalim:
Sodom and Gomorrah are spoken of in
Genesis 18:16-33; Genesis 19:1-29. Let us turn there to see just
what destruction is referred to in this section of reading.
The casting into Hell in reference is
a major punishment seeing is how Satan was cst this punishment.
KJV Isaiah 14:12-15
12 How art thou fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which
didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine
heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars
of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides
of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights
of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought
down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
A prayer offered by Christ thanking
God that those babes in the Lord had opportunity to see such things and
learn these lessons. That Christ is the teacher of Heaven and the
way to the Father.
Verses 28-30 – An Invitation
The Burden of Christ and the work is
easy and not heavy to be considering the reward.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 12
Verses 1-8 - Christ speaks of
the Sabbath Day
What is the Sabbath Day?
KJV Exodus 31:15
15. Six days may work be done;
but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever
doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
The reference that is made of the Bread
KJV Exodus 25:30
30. And thou shalt set upon the
table shewbread before me alway.
The reference to the passage in verse
KJV 1 Samuel 21:1-6
1. Then came David to Nob
to Ahimelech the priest: and Ahimelech was afraid at the meeting of David,
and said unto him, Why art thou alone, and no man with thee?
2. And David said unto
Ahimelech the priest, The king hath commanded me a business, and hath said
unto me, Let no man know any thing of the business whereabout I send thee,
and what I have commanded thee: and I have appointed my servants to such
and such a place.
3. Now therefore what is
under thine hand? give me five loaves of bread in mine hand, or what there
4. And the priest answered
David, and said, There is no common bread under mine hand, but there is
hallowed bread; if the young men have kept themselves at least from women.
5. And David answered the
priest, and said unto him, Of a truth women have been kept from us about
these three days, since I came out, and the vessels of the young men are
holy, and the bread is in a manner common, yea, though it were sanctified
this day in the vessel.
6. So the priest gave him
hallowed bread: for there was no bread there but the shewbread, that was
taken from before the Lord, to put hot bread in the day when it was taken
The priest were to take of this with
KJV Leviticus 24:5-9
5. And thou shalt take
fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in
6. And thou shalt set them
in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the Lord.
7. And thou shalt put pure
frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial,
even an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
8. Every sabbath he shall
set it in order before the Lord continually, being taken from the children
of Israel by an everlasting covenant.
9. And it shall be Aaron's and his
sons'; and they shall eat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto
him of the offerings of the Lord made by fire by a perpetual statute.
Christ states in verse 8 that he is
the Lord even of the Sabbath.
KJV Isaiah 66:1-2
1. Thus saith the Lord,
The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house
that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
2. For all those things hath mine hand
made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will
I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth
at my word.
Verse 9-14 Christ heals the man with
the withered (shriveled) hand
Luke’s account of this passage tells
us that on another Sabbath Christ healed this man
KJV Luke 6:1-11
1. And it came to pass
on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields;
and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in
2. And certain of the Pharisees
said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath
3. And Jesus answering
them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself
was an hungred, and they which were with him;
4. How he went into the
house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them
that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
5. And he said unto them,
That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
6. And it came to pass
also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught:
and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7. And the scribes and
Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they
might find an accusation against him.
8. But he knew their thoughts,
and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth
in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
9. Then said Jesus unto
them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do
good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
10. And looking round about
upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did
so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
10. And they were filled with madness;
and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
V 14 The Pharisees held a council against
The chosen servant
Is Christ the one whom will remain
quiet in the streets, not known as prophesied in:
KJV Isaiah 42:1-4
1. Behold my servant, whom I
uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon
him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2. He shall not cry, nor
lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3. A bruised reed shall
he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring
forth judgment unto truth.
4. He shall not fail nor be discouraged,
till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his
Verse 22-24 Christ heals a demonically
possessed person and the Pharisees are not pleased with this.
Verses 25-30 A House divided cannot
Christ states he is not of Satan yet
more powerful, and that those that stand not with Christ are then against
Sin against the Holy Spirit
The six sin against the Holy Spirit
1.) Matthew 12,Verse31 – Blasphemy
2.) Lie or to Tempt
KJV Acts 5:3-4
3 But Peter said, Ananias, why
hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back
part of the price of the land?
4 Whiles it remained, was it
not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why
hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto
men, but unto God.
KJV Acts 5:9
9. Then Peter said unto
her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the
Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the
door, and shall carry thee out.
KJV Hebrews 10:29
29. Of how much sorer punishment,
suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the
Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was
sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
4.) Resisting or striving with
KJV Acts 7:51
51. Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised
in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers
did, so do ye.
KJV Ephesians 4:30
30. And grieve not the
holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
KJV 1 Thessalonians 5:19
19. Quench not the Spirit.
The sign that Christ was to be resurrected
after 3 days and nights.
Christ would spend 3 days in the ground
as Jonah did the whale’s belly (great fish)
KJV Jonah 1:17
17. Now the Lord had prepared
a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish
three days and three nights.
Notice that Christ said this great fish
was a whale – V 40.
The chapter closes by Christ saying
that the same as his fleshly born brother would be a brother of belief
in God the Father and he who does the will of the father.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 13
THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER
Verses 1-9 & 18-23 with a break
in verses 10-17 for Christ to explain the use of parables.
First the SOWER
KJV Matthew 28:19
19. Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
KJV Mark 16:15-16
15. And he said unto them,
Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16. He that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
KJV Luke 8:11
11. Now the parable is
this: The seed is the word of God.
KJV 1 Peter 1:22-23
22. Seeing ye have purified your
souls in obeying the truth through the spirit unto unfeigned love of the
brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
23. Being born again, not
of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth
and abideth for ever.
KJV 2 Corinthians 5:7
7. (For we walk by faith,
not by sight:)
KJV Romans 10:17
17. So then faith cometh
by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
KJV Hebrews 11:6
6. But without faith it
is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that
he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
KJV Acts 20:32
32. And now, brethren, I commend you
to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and
to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
1.) The seeds by the way side (No response
to the message, it fell on deaf ears, and a hardened heart).
2.) Those that fell on the rocks (no
roots or foundation)
3.) Those seeds that fell among thorns
(the cares of the world choke the message out)
4.) The good ground (the seed was planted
THE PARABLE OF THE WHEAT AND TARES
Verses 24-30 explained in verses 36-43
Satan has tares that are planted among
the wheat(the children of God)
The good convert versus the bad convert
True versus false
Christ tells us that there will be those
that sow good, and they should leave those that sow discord alone till
When Christ says this at we degree are
we to step in and pull the tares from the harvest? It is obvious
when the tares start to overtake the good crop!
THE PARABLE OF THE MUSTARD SEED Verses
A small seed can grow to be large in
size. The seed is still planted, although it may not be a huge seed.
Let us learn that what you do may not seem significant, yet that small
seed you could plant could turn to be very large.
THE PARABLE OF THE LEAVEN
A little leaven hidden in measures
can cause the bread of evil to rise.
KJV Matthew 16:11-12
11. How is it that ye do
not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should
beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
12. Then understood they how that he
bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the
Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
JESUS USE OF PARABLES Verses 34-35
KJV Psalms 78:2
2. I will open my mouth in a parable:
I will utter dark sayings of old:
PARABLE OF THE HIDDEN TREASURES Verse
Never should the Kingdom (the Church)
be hidden yet this parable is of a man that wants to give all that he has
for the Kingdom. We should be in want of the Kingdom as to giving
all that we have to devote our lives to it.
THE PARABLE OF THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE
Again the thought that we should give
all of ourselves to Christ. He paid our price now we owe him
THE PARABLE OF THE NET Verses 47-51
Again Christ tells that there will
be a division from the good and the bad on that final day.
TREASURES NEW AND OLD Verse 52
Householders kept the treasures.
DO NOT keep the treasures of the Kingdom hidden and stored rather have
them be shared, both new and old.
CHRIST IS REJECTED Verses 53-58
Where there is one that teaches truth
many will not like it.
MATTHEW CHAPTER 14
Herod hears of Christ and is afraid
that it is John the Baptist from the dead.
Verses 3-14 an account of what
happened at the time of John the Baptist’s death.
We find that Herodias hates John the
Baptist for condemning her marriage.
Marriage and divorce is one subject
that will always draw battle lines.
KJV Mark 6:17-19
17. For Herod himself had
sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias'
sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.
18. For John had said unto
Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.
19. Therefore Herodias had a quarrel
against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
KJV Matthew 5:31-32
31. It hath been said,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32. But I say unto you,
That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication,
causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced
KJV Matthew 19:3-9
3. The Pharisees also came
unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to
put away his wife for every cause?
4. And he answered and
said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning
made them male and female,
5. And said, For this cause
shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and
they twain shall be one flesh?
6. Wherefore they are no
more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let
not man put asunder.
7. They say unto him, Why
did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her
8. He saith unto them,
Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your
wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
9. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall
put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit
KJV 1 Corinthians 7:1-13
1. Now concerning the things
whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2. Nevertheless, to avoid
fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have
her own husband.
3. Let the husband render
unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4. The wife hath not power
of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not
power of his own body, but the wife.
5. Defraud ye not one the
other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves
to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not
for your incontinency.
6. But I speak this by
permission, and not of commandment.
7. For I would that all
men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one
after this manner, and another after that.
8. I say therefore to the
unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.
9. But if they cannot contain,
let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
10. And unto the married
I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11. But and if she depart,
let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not
the husband put away his wife.
12. But to the rest speak
I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she
be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
13. And the woman which hath an husband
that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not
KJV Romans 7:2-3
2. For the woman which
hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth;
if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
3. So then if, while her husband liveth,
she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if
her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress,
though she be married to another man.
Verses 15-21 Jesus feeds 5,000+women
This is the only miracle that is listed
in all four of the Gospel records. Matthew 14:15-21; Mark 6:30-44;
Luke 9:10-17; John 6:1-13.
Verses 22-33 Jesus calms the storm ,
walks on water, and Peter walks briefly on water as well.
In the record according to the inspired
John we have then a lesson on the bread of life this happening as a result
of the feeding of 5,000+.
READ John 6:22-65. Which then
is followed by Peter’s great confession.
The sick in Gennesaret verses 34-36.
Healed with just the touch of a garment.
