Hebrews 5:13 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Useth (μετέχων)

Rend. partakes of. See on Hebrews 1:9; see on Hebrews 2:14; see on Hebrews 3:1, Hebrews 3:14.

Unskilful (ἄπειρος)

N.T.o. Rend. unskilled or inexperienced.

In the word of righteousness (λόγου δικαιοσύνης)

The phrase N.T.o. The genitive δικαιοσύνης of righteousness is combined in N.T. with way, God, gift, instruments, servants, law, ministration, fruit and fruits, ministers, hope, breastplate, crown, king, preacher. It is a mistake to attempt to give the phrase here a concrete meaning. It signifies simply a word of normally right character. It is not equals the Christian revelation, which would require the article. Probably, however, in the foreground of the writer's thought was the word spoken by the Son (Hebrews 1:2); the salvation which at first was spoken by the Lord (Hebrews 2:3).

A babe (νήπιος)

See on Romans 2:20; see on 1 Corinthians 3:1; see on Ephesians 4:14.
