Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 10:35-37.

Hebrews 10:37-38

_ _ Encouragement to patient endurance by consideration of the shortness of the time till Christ shall come, and God’s rejection of him that draws back, taken from Habakkuk 2:3, Habakkuk 2:4.

_ _ a little while — (John 16:16).

_ _ he that shall come — literally, “the Comer.” In Habakkuk, it is the vision that is said to be about to come. Christ, being the grand and ultimate subject of all prophetical vision, is here made by Paul, under inspiration, the subject of the Spirit’s prophecy by Habakkuk, in its final and exhaustive fulfillment.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 10:19-39.
