Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 13:15

_ _ As the “altar” was mentioned in Hebrews 13:10, so the “sacrifices” here (compare 1 Peter 2:5, namely, praise and doing good, Hebrews 13:16). Compare Psalms 119:108; Romans 12:1.

_ _ By him — as the Mediator of our prayers and praises (John 14:13, John 14:14); not by Jewish observances (Psalms 50:14, Psalms 50:23; Psalms 69:30, Psalms 69:31; Psalms 107:22; Psalms 116:17). It was an old saying of the rabbis, “At a future time all sacrifices shall cease, but praises shall not cease.”

_ _ of praise — for salvation.

_ _ continually — not merely at fixed seasons, as those on which the legal sacrifices were offered, but throughout all our lives.

_ _ fruit of our lips — (Isaiah 57:19; Hosea 14:2).

_ _ giving thanksGreek, “confessing.” Bengel remarks that the Hebrew,todah,” is beautifully emphatic. It literally means “acknowledgment” or “confession.” In praising a creature, we may easily exceed the truth; but in praising God we have only to go on confessing what He really is to us. Hence it is impossible to exceed the truth, and here is genuine praise.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 13:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 13:15

The sacrifice — The altar is mentioned, Hebrews 13:10; now the sacrifices: Praise; Beneficence; with both of which God is well pleased.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 13:15

(9) By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name.

(9) Now that those physical sacrifices are taken away, he teaches us that the true sacrifices of confession remain, which consist partly in giving thanks, and partly in liberality, with which sacrifices indeed God is now delighted.
