Luke 13:9

_ _ if ... fruit, well — Genuine repentance, however late, avails to save (Luke 23:42, Luke 23:43).

_ _ after that, etc. — The final perdition of such as, after the utmost limits of reasonable forbearance, are found fruitless, will be pre-eminently and confessedly just (Proverbs 1:24-31; Ezekiel 24:13).
