Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 8:24

_ _ For we are saved by hope — rather, “For in hope we are saved”; that is, it is more a salvation in hope than as yet in actual possession.

_ _ but hope that is seen is not hope — for the very meaning of hope is, the expectation that something now future will become present.

_ _ for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? — the latter ending when the other comes.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 8:17-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 8:24

For we are saved by hope — Our salvation is now only in hope. We do not yet possess this full salvation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 8:24

(23) For we are saved by hope: but (f) hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

(23) Sixthly, hope is necessarily joined with faith: seeing then that we believe those things which we are not yet in possession of, and hope does not refer to the thing that is present, we must therefore hope and patiently wait for that which we believe will come to pass.

(f) This is spoken by the figure of speech metonymy, that is, "hope", which stands for that which is hoped for.
