Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 2:18

_ _ For — explanation of how His being made like His brethren in all things has made Him a merciful and faithful High Priest for us (Hebrews 2:17).

_ _ in that — rather as Greek, “wherein He suffered Himself; having been tempted, He is able to succor them that are being tempted” in the same temptation; and as “He was tempted (tried and afflicted) in all points,” He is able (by the power of sympathy) to succor us in all possible temptations and trials incidental to man (Hebrews 4:16; Hebrews 5:2). He is the antitypical Solomon, having for every grain of Abraham’s seed (which were to be as the sand for number), “largeness of heart even as the sand that is on the seashore” (1 Kings 4:29). “Not only as God He knows our trials, but also as man He knows them by experimental feeling.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
