Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 4:6

_ _ it remaineth — still to be realized.

_ _ some must enter — The denial of entrance to unbelievers is a virtual promise of entrance to those that believe. God wishes not His rest to be empty, but furnished with guests (Luke 14:23).

_ _ they to whom it was first preached entered not — literally, “they who first (in the time of Moses) had the Gospel preached to them,” namely, in type, see on Hebrews 4:2.

_ _ unbeliefGreek, rather “disobedience” (see on Hebrews 3:18).
