Hebrews 10:34 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

For ye had compassion of me in my bonds (καὶ γὰρ τοῖς δεσμίοις συνεπαθήσατε)

Entirely wrong, following T.R. τοῖς δεσμοῖς μου. Rend. "ye had compassion on the prisoners." So Vulg. vinctis compassi estis. The corrupt reading has furnished one of the stock arguments for the Pauline authorship of the Epistle.

Took joyfully (μετὰ χαρᾶς προσεδέξασθε)

The verb primarily to receive to one's self, accept, as here. Comp. Luke 15:2; Philippians 2:29. Mostly, in N.T. however, to wait for, expect, as Mark 15:43; Luke 2:25, Luke 2:38; Acts 23:21.

Spoiling (ἁρπαγὴν)

Only here Matthew 23:25; Luke 11:39. Allied with ἁρπάζειν to snatch away.

Of your goods (τῶν ὑπαρχόντων ὑμῶν)

The verb ὑπάρχεινmeans originally to begin, or begin to be; hence of anything that has begun to be, to come forth, be there; then simply to be. Accordingly the phrase ὑπάρχει μοὶ τι means there is something to me, I have something. See Acts 3:6; Acts 4:37; Acts 28:7. Hence τὰ ὑπάρχοντα things which are to one; possessions, goods. See Matthew 19:21; Matthew 24:27; Luke 8:3; Acts 4:32.

Knowing in yourselves that ye have, etc. (γινώσκοντες ἔχειν ἑαυτοὺς)

Rend. "knowing that ye yourselves have a better," etc. The A.V. follows T.R. ἐν ἑαυτοῖς. Ye yourselves in contrast with your spoilers.

Substance (ὕπαρξιν)

Only here and Acts 2:45. Occasionally in lxx. Rend. possession.
