Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 3:6

_ _ But Christ — was and is faithful (Hebrews 3:2).

_ _ as a son over his own house — rather, “over His (God’s, Hebrews 3:4) house”; and therefore, as the inference from His being one with God, over His own house. So Hebrews 10:21, “having an High Priest over the house of God.” Christ enters His Father’s house as the Master [OVER it], but Moses as a servant [IN it, Hebrews 3:2, Hebrews 3:5] [Chrysostom]. An ambassador in the absence of the king is very distinguished — in the presence of the king he falls back into the multitude [Bengel].

_ _ whose house are we — Paul and his Hebrew readers. One old manuscript, with Vulgate and Lucifer, reads, “which house”; but the weightiest manuscripts support English Version reading.

_ _ the rejoicing — rather, “the matter of rejoicing.”

_ _ of the hope — “of our hope.” Since all our good things lie in hopes, we ought so to hold fast our hopes as already to rejoice, as though our hopes were realized [Chrysostom].

_ _ firm unto the end — omitted in Lucifer and Ambrose, and in one oldest manuscript, but supported by most oldest manuscripts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 3:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 3:6

But Christ was faithful as a Son; whose house we are, while we hold fast, and shall be unto the end, if we hold fast our confidence in God, and glorying in his promises; our faith and hope.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 3:6

But Christ as a son over his own house; (6) whose (d) house are we, if we hold fast the (e) confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

(6) He applies the former doctrine to his purpose, exhorting all men by the words of David to hear the Son speak, and to give full credit to his words, seeing that otherwise they cannot enter into that eternal rest.

(d) That is, Christ's.

(e) He calls confidence the excellent effect of faith (by which we cry Abba, that is, Father), and to confidence he adds hope.
