Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 12:8-9

_ _ confess ... deny — The point lies in doing it “before men,” because one has to do it “despising the shame.” But when done, the Lord holds Himself bound to repay it in kind by confessing such “before the angels of God.” For the rest, see on Luke 9:26.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 12:1-12.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 12:8

(3) Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

(3) Great is the reward of a constant confession: and horrible is the punishment for denying Christ; yea, it will be impossible to call the punishment back again, if on purpose, both with mouth and heart we blaspheme a known truth.
