Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 10:34

_ _ ye had compassion on me in my bonds — The oldest manuscripts and versions omit “me,” and read, “Ye both sympathized with those in bonds (answering to the last clause of Hebrews 10:33; compare Hebrews 13:3, Hebrews 13:23; Hebrews 6:10), and accepted (so the Greek is translated in Hebrews 11:35) with joy (James 1:2; joy in tribulations, as exercising faith and other graces, Romans 5:3; and the pledge of the coming glory, Matthew 5:12) the plundering of your (own) goods (answering to the first clause of Hebrews 10:33).”

_ _ in yourselves — The oldest manuscripts omit “in”: translate, “knowing that ye have for (or ‘to’) yourselves.

_ _ better — a heavenly (Hebrews 11:16).

_ _ enduring — not liable to spoiling.

_ _ substance — possession: peculiarly our own, if we will not cast away our birthright.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 10:19-39.
