Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 5:8

_ _ coming ... draweth nigh — The Greek expresses present time and a settled state. 1 Peter 4:7, “is at hand.” We are to live in a continued state of expectancy of the Lord’s coming, as an event always nigh. Nothing can more “stablish the heart” amidst present troubles than the realized expectation of His speedy coming.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on James 5:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

James 5:8

Stablish your hearts — In faith and patience. For the coming of the Lord — To destroy Jerusalem. Is nigh — And so is his last coming to the eye of a believer.
