Hebrews 3:5

_ _ faithful in all his house — that is in all God’s house (Hebrews 3:4).

_ _ servant — not here the Greek for “slave,” but “a ministering attendant”; marking the high office of Moses towards God, though inferior to Christ, a kind of steward.

_ _ for a testimony of, etc. — in order that he might in his typical institutions give “testimony” to Israel “of the things” of the Gospel “which were to be spoken afterwards” by Christ (Hebrews 8:5; Hebrews 9:8, Hebrews 9:23; Hebrews 10:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
