Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 11:11

_ _ also Sara herself — though being the weaker vessel, and though at first she doubted.

_ _ was delivered of a child — omitted in the oldest manuscripts: then translate, “and that when she was past age” (Romans 4:19).

_ _ she judged him faithful who had promised — after she had ceased to doubt, being instructed by the angel that it was no jest, but a matter in serious earnest.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 11:4-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 11:11

Sarah also herself — Though at first she laughed at the promise, Genesis 18:12. Genesis 21:2.

Genesis 18:11-14 Now Abraham and Sarah [were] old [and] well stricken in age; [and] it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. ... Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
Genesis 21:1-2 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken. ... For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
Luke 1:36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
1 Peter 3:5-6 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: ... Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;)
Romans 4:20-21 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; ... And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
