Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Hebrews 10:19-39

I. Here the apostle sets forth the dignities of the gospel state. It is fit that believers should know the honours and privileges that Christ has procured for them, that, while they take the comfort, they may give him the glory of all. The privileges are, 1. Boldness to enter into the holiest. They have access to God, light to direct them, liberty of spirit and of speech to conform to the direction; they have a right to the privilege and a readiness for it, assistance to use and improve it and... read more

William Barclay's Daily Study Bible - Hebrews 10:19-25

10:19-25 Since then, brothers, in virtue of what the blood of Jesus has done for us, we can confidently enter into the Holy Place by the new and living way which Jesus inaugurated for us through the veil-- that is, through his flesh--and since we have a great High Priest who is over the house of God, let us approach the presence of God with a heart wherein the truth dwells and with the full conviction of faith, with our hearts so sprinkled that they are cleansed from all consciousness of evil... read more

John Gill

John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary - Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider one another ,.... Saints should consider one another as men, that they are but men, of like passions and infirmities; they should consider their different tempers, and make allowance for them, and their outward state and condition in the world: they should consider one another as saints, partakers of the same grace; as that they are all loved with the same love, all conceived and brought forth in the womb of God's eternal electing grace, interested in the same covenant,... read more

Adam Clarke

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible - Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider one another - Κατανοωμεν· Let us diligently and attentively consider each other's trials, difficulties, and weaknesses; feel for each other, and excite each other to an increase of love to God and man; and, as the proof of it, to be fruitful in good works. The words εις παροξυσμον , to the provocation, are often taken in a good sense, and signify excitement, stirring up, to do any thing laudable, useful, honorable, or necessary. Xenophon, Cyrop., lib. vi., page 108,... read more

John Calvin

John Calvin's Commentary on the Bible - Hebrews 10:24

Verse 24 24.And let us consider one another, etc. I doubt not but that he addresses the Jews especially in this exhortation. It is well­known how great was the arrogance of that nation; being the posterity of Abraham, they boasted that they alone, to the exclusion of all others, had been chosen by the Lord to inherit the covenant of eternal life. Inflated by such a privilege, they despised other nations, and wished to be thought as being alone in the Church of God; nay, they superciliously... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Hebrews 10:19-25

The great admonition. Having completed his elaborate argument, and concluded the doctrinal part of the treatise, the author warmly exhorts the Hebrews to maintain their Christian steadfastness. The appeal contained in these verses collects into a focus of intense light and heat the main teaching of this weighty book. The paragraph before us may be regarded as the center of gravity of the Epistle. It is also the key-note of the impressive representations and the loving counsels which occupy... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Hebrews 10:19-39

Hebrews 10:19-39 . HORTATORY PORTION OF THE EPISTLE . The great doctrine of Christ's eternal priesthood having been led up to, established by argument, and at length fully expounded, it remains only to press the practical result of a belief in it in alternate tones of encouragement and of warning. We have seen that, even in the earlier chapters, hortatory passages were frequently interposed, showing the purpose all along in the writer's mind. In the central and deepest part of... read more

Spence, H. D. M., etc.

The Pulpit Commentary - Hebrews 10:23-25

Let us hold fast the confession ( ὁμολογίαν , see Hebrews 3:1 , and ref; also Hebrews 4:14 ) of our hope without wavering ( ἀκλινῆ , agreeing with "confession"); for he is faithful that promised: and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works; not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. The readers, having been exhorted to confidence... read more

Spence, H. D. M., etc.

The Pulpit Commentary - Hebrews 10:24

The duty and design of mutual consideration. "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love," etc. An interesting connection of our text with the preceding verses of this paragraph is pointed out by Delitzsch. "How beautifully is the exhortation here disposed in conformity with the Pauline triad of Christian graces ( 1 Corinthians 13:13 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:3 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:8 ; Colossians 1:4 , Colossians 1:5 )! First, the injunction to approach in the full assurance... read more

Spence, H. D. M., etc.

The Pulpit Commentary - Hebrews 10:24-25

Mutuality in the Christian life. The exhortation in Hebrews 10:23 is one for individual Christians, looking towards their Savior in direct connection with him and towards their own future. But so soon as ever we feel sure that we are keeping right with respect to Christ, we must make that rightness subservient to the strengthening, the comfort, and the usefulness of our fellow-Christians. We must both help them and look for help to them. Mutual help for common needs is eminently a... read more
