Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 11:9

_ _ sojourned — as a “stranger and pilgrim.”

_ _ inGreek, “into,” that is, he went into it and sojourned there.

_ _ as in a strange country — a country not belonging to him, but to others (so the Greek), Acts 7:5, Acts 7:6.

_ _ dwelling in tabernaclestents: as strangers and sojourners do: moving from place to place, as having no fixed possession of their own. In contrast to the abiding “city” (Hebrews 11:10).

_ _ with — Their kind of dwelling being the same is a proof that their faith was the same. They all alike were content to wait for their good things hereafter (Luke 16:25). Jacob was fifteen years old at the death of Abraham.

_ _ heirs with him of the same promise — Isaac did not inherit it from Abraham, nor Jacob from Isaac, but they all inherited it from God directly as “fellow heirs.” In Hebrews 6:12, Hebrews 6:15, Hebrews 6:17, “the promise” means the thing promised as a thing in part already attained; but in this chapter “the promise” is of something still future. However, see on Hebrews 6:12.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 11:4-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 11:9

By faith he sojourned in the land of promise — The promise was made before, Genesis 12:7. Dwelling in tents — As a sojourner With Isaac and Jacob — Who by the same manner of living showed the same faith Jacob was born fifteen years before the death of Abraham. The joint heirs of the same promise — Having all the same interest therein. Isaac did not receive this inheritance from Abraham, nor Jacob from Isaac, but all of them from God. Genesis 17:8
