Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 10:15

_ _ The Greek, has “moreover,” or “now.”

_ _ is a witness — of the truth which I am setting forth. The Father’s witness is given Hebrews 5:10. The Son’s, Hebrews 10:5. Now is added that of the Holy Spirit, called accordingly “the Spirit of grace,” Hebrews 10:29. The testimony of all Three leads to the same conclusion (Hebrews 10:18).

_ _ for after that he had said before — The conclusion to the sentence is in Hebrews 10:17, “After He had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them (with the house of Israel, Hebrews 8:10; here extended to the spiritual Israel) ... saith the Lord; I will put (literally, ‘giving,’ referring to the giving of the law; not now as then, giving into the hands, but giving) My laws into their hearts (‘mind,’ Hebrews 8:10) and in their minds (‘hearts,’ Hebrews 8:10); I will inscribe (so the Greek) them (here He omits the addition quoted in Hebrews 8:10, Hebrews 8:11, I will be to them a God ... and they shall not teach every man his neighbor ...), and (that is, after He had said the foregoing, HE THEN ADDS) their sins ... will I remember no more.” The great object of the quotation here is to prove that, there being in the Gospel covenant, “REMISSION of sins” (Hebrews 10:17), there is no more need of a sacrifice for sins. The object of the same quotation in Hebrews 8:8-13 is to show that, there being a “NEW covenant,” the old is antiquated.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 10:15

In Hebrews 10:15-18, the apostle winds up his argument concerning the excellency and perfection of the priesthood and sacrifice of Christ. He had proved this before by a quotation from Jeremiah; which he here repeats, describing the new covenant as now completely ratified, and all the blessings of it secured to us by the one offering of Christ, which renders all other expiatory sacrifices, and any repetition of his own, utterly needless.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 10:15

(5) [Whereof] the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

(5) Although there remains in us relics of sin, yet the work of our sanctification which is to be perfected, hangs on the same sacrifice which never shall be repeated: and that the apostle proves by referring again to the testimony of Jeremiah, thus: Sin is taken away by the new testament, seeing the Lord says that it shall come to pass, that according to the form of it, he will no more remember our sins: Therefore we need now no purging sacrifice to take away that which is already taken away, but we must rather take pains, that we may now through faith be partakers of that sacrifice.
