Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 5:10

_ _ the prophets — who were especially persecuted, and therefore were especially “blessed.”

_ _ example of suffering affliction — rather, simply, “of affliction,” literally, “evil treatment.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on James 5:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

James 5:10

Take the prophets for an example — Once persecuted like you, even for speaking in the name of the Lord. The very men that gloried in having prophets yet could not bear their message: nor did either their holiness or their high commission screen them from suffering.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

James 5:10

(6) Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

(6) Because most men will object, that it is good to repel injuries by whatever means, he contrasts that with the examples of the fathers whose patience had a most happy end, because God as a most bountiful Father, never forsakes his.
