Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 10:39

_ _ A Pauline elegant turning-off from denunciatory warnings to charitable hopes of his readers (Romans 8:12).

_ _ saving of the soul — literally, “acquisition (or obtaining) of the soul.” The kindred Greek verb is applied to Christ’s acquiring the Church as the purchase of His blood (Acts 20:28). If we acquire or obtain our soul’s salvation, it is through Him who has obtained it for us by His bloodshedding. “The unbelieving man loses his soul: for not being God’s, neither is he his own [compare Matthew 16:26, with Luke 9:25]: faith saves the soul by linking it to God” [Delitzsch in Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 10:19-39.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 10:39

We are not of them who draw back to perdition — Like him mentioned Hebrews 10:38. But of them that believe — To the end, so as to attain eternal life.
