Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 5:5

_ _ glorified not himself — did not assume the glory of the priestly office of Himself without the call of God (John 8:54).

_ _ but he that said — that is, the Father glorified Him or appointed Him to the priesthood. This appointment was involved in, and was the result of, the Sonship of Christ, which qualified Him for it. None but the divine Son could have fulfilled such an office (Hebrews 10:5-9). The connection of Sonship and priesthood is typified in the Hebrew title for priests being given to David’s sons (2 Samuel 8:18). Christ did not constitute Himself the Son of God, but was from everlasting the only-begotten of the Father. On His Sonship depended His glorification, and His being called of God (Hebrews 5:10), as Priest.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 5:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 5:5

So also Christ glorified not himself to be an high priest — That is, did not take this honour to himself, but received it from him who said, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee — Not, indeed, at the same time; for his generation was from eternity. Psalms 2:7.
