Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 12:29

_ _ Greek, “For even”: “for also”; introducing an additional solemn incentive to diligence. Quoted from Deuteronomy 4:24.

_ _ our God — in whom we hope, is also to be feared. He is love (1 John 4:8, 1 John 4:16); yet there is another side of His character; God has wrath against sin (Hebrews 10:27, Hebrews 10:31).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 12:18-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 12:29

For our God is a consuming fire — in the strictness of his justice, and purity of his holiness.
