Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 10:26

_ _ Compare on this and following verses, Hebrews 6:4, etc. There the warning was that if there be not diligence in progressing, a falling off will take place, and apostasy may ensue: here it is, that if there be lukewarmness in Christian communion, apostasy may ensue.

_ _ if we sinGreek present participle: if we be found sinning, that is, not isolated acts, but a state of sin [Alford]. A violation not only of the law, but of the whole economy of the New Testament (Hebrews 10:28, Hebrews 10:29).

_ _ willfully — presumptuously, Greek “willingly.” After receiving “full knowledge (so the Greek, compare 1 Timothy 2:4) of the truth,” by having been “enlightened,” and by having “tasted” a certain measure even of grace of “the Holy Ghost” (the Spirit of truth, John 14:17; and “the Spirit of grace,” Hebrews 10:29): to fall away (as “sin” here means, Hebrews 3:12, Hebrews 3:17; compare Hebrews 6:6) and apostatize (Hebrews 3:12) to Judaism or infidelity, is not a sin of ignorance, or error (“out of the way,” the result) of infirmity, but a deliberate sinning against the Spirit (Hebrews 10:29; Hebrews 5:2): such sinning, where a consciousness of Gospel obligations not only was, but is present: a sinning presumptuously and preseveringly against Christ’s redemption for us, and the Spirit of grace in us. “He only who stands high can fall low. A lively reference in the soul to what is good is necessary in order to be thoroughly wicked; hence, man can be more reprobate than the beasts, and the apostate angels than apostate man” [Tholuck].

_ _ remaineth no more sacrifice — For there is but ONE Sacrifice that can atone for sin; they, after having fully known that sacrifice, deliberately reject it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 10:19-39.

For when we — Any of us Christians. Sin wilfully — By total apostasy from God, termed "drawing back," Hebrews 10:38. After having received the experimental knowledge of the gospel truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins — None but that which we obstinately reject.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 10:26

For if we sin (m) wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Sin here means doing wrong kind of sin or not having faith? For I think the preceding and previous verses are talking about faith.

Is it talking about rejecting the sacrifice of Christ for the Hebrews that is sin?
