Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 8:9

_ _ Not according to, etc. — very different from, and far superior to, the old covenant, which only “worked wrath” (Romans 4:15) through man’s “not regarding” it. The new covenant enables us to obey by the Spirit’s inward impulse producing love because of the forgiveness of our sins.

_ _ made with — rather as Greek, “made to”: the Israelites being only recipients, not coagents [Alford] with God.

_ _ I took them by the hand — as a father takes his child by the hand to support and guide his steps. “There are three periods: (1) that of the promise; (2) that of the pedagogical instruction; (3) that of fulfillment” [Bengel]. The second, that of the pedagogical pupilage, began at the exodus from Egypt.

_ _ I regarded them notEnglish Version, Jeremiah 31:32, translates, “Although I was an husband unto them.” Paul’s translation here is supported by the Septuagint, Syriac, and Gesenius, and accords with the kindred Arabic. The Hebrews regarded not God, so God, in righteous retribution, regarded them not. On “continued not in my covenant,” Schelling observes: The law was in fact the mere ideal of a religious constitution: in practice, the Jews were throughout, before the captivity, more or less polytheists, except in the time of David, and the first years of Solomon (the type of Messiah’s reign). Even after the return from Babylon, idolatry was succeeded by what was not much better, formalism and hypocrisy (Matthew 12:43). The law was (1) a typical picture, tracing out the features of the glorious Gospel to be revealed; (2) it had a delegated virtue from the Gospel, which ceased, therefore, when the Gospel came.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 8:6-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 8:9

When I took them by the hand — With the care and tenderness of a parent. And just while this was fresh in their memory, they obeyed; but presently after they shook off the yoke. They continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not — So that covenant was soon broken in pieces.
