Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 10:23

_ _ (Hebrews 3:6, Hebrews 3:14; Hebrews 4:14.)

_ _ professionGreek, “confession.”

_ _ our faith — rather as Greek, “our hope”; which is indeed faith exercised as to the future inheritance. Hope rests on faith, and at the same time quickens faith, and is the ground of our bold confession (1 Peter 3:15). Hope is similarly (Hebrews 10:22) connected with purification (1 John 3:3).

_ _ without wavering — without declension (Hebrews 3:14), “steadfast unto the end.”

_ _ he — God is faithful to His promises (Hebrews 6:17, Hebrews 6:18; Hebrews 11:11; Hebrews 12:26, Hebrews 12:28; 1 Corinthians 1:9; 1 Corinthians 10:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:24; 2 Thessalonians 3:3; see also Christ’s promise, John 12:26); but man is too often unfaithful to his duties.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 10:19-39.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 10:23

The profession of our hope — The hope which we professed at our baptism.
