Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 11:7

_ _ warned of God — The same Greek, Hebrews 8:5, “admonished of God.”

_ _ moved with fear — not mere slavish fear, but as in Hebrews 5:7; see on Hebrews 5:7; Greek, “reverential fear”: opposed to the world’s sneering disbelief of the revelation, and self-deceiving security. Join “by faith” with “prepared an ark” (1 Peter 3:20).

_ _ by the which — faith.

_ _ condemned the world — For since he believed and was saved, so might they have believed and been saved, so that their condemnation by God is by his case shown to be just.

_ _ righteousness which is by faithGreek, “according to faith.” A Pauline thought. Noah is first called “righteous” in Genesis 6:9. Christ calls Abel so, Matthew 23:35. Compare as to Noah’s righteousness, Ezekiel 14:14, Ezekiel 14:20; 2 Peter 2:5, “a preacher of righteousness.” Paul here makes faith the principle and ground of his righteousness.

_ _ heir — the consequence of sonship which flows from faith.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 11:4-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 11:7

Noah being warned of things not seen as yet — Of the future deluge. Moved with fear, prepared an ark, by which open testimony he condemned the world — Who neither believed nor feared.
