Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 11:5

_ _ Faith was the ground of his pleasing God; and his pleasing God was the ground of his translation.

_ _ translated — (Genesis 5:22, Genesis 5:24). Implying a sudden removal (the same Greek as in Galatians 1:6) from mortality without death to immortality: such a CHANGE as shall pass over the living at Christ’s coming (1 Corinthians 15:51, 1 Corinthians 15:52).

_ _ had this testimony — namely of Scripture; the Greek perfect implies that this testimony continues still: “he has been testified of.”

_ _ pleased God — The Scripture testimony virtually expresses that he pleased God, namely, “Enoch walked with God.” The Septuagint translates the Hebrew for “walked with God,” Genesis 6:9, pleased God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 11:4-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 11:5

Enoch was not any longer found among men, though perhaps they sought for him as they did for Elijah, 2 Kings 2:17. He had this testimony — From God in his own conscience.
