Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 12:3

_ _ For — justifying his exhortation, “Looking unto Jesus.”

_ _ consider — by way of comparison with yourselves, so the Greek.

_ _ contradiction — unbelief, and every kind of opposition (Acts 28:19).

_ _ sinnersSin assails us. Not sin, but sinners, contradicted Christ [Bengel].

_ _ be wearied and faintGreek, “lest ye weary fainting.” Compare Isaiah 49:4, Isaiah 49:5, as a specimen of Jesus not being wearied out by the contradiction and strange unbelief of those among whom He labored, preaching as never man did, and exhibiting miracles wrought by His inherent power, as none else could do.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 12:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 12:3

Consider — Draw the comparison and think. The Lord bore all this; and shall his servants bear nothing? Him that endured such contradiction from sinners — Such enmity and opposition of every kind Lest ye be weary — Dull and languid, and so actually faint in your course.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 12:3

(3) For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

(3) An amplification, taken from the circumstance of the person and the things themselves, which he compares between themselves: for how great is Jesus in comparison of us, and how far more grievous things did he suffer than we?
