Hebrews 10:39 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

But we are not of them who draw back (ἡμεῖς δὲ οὐκ ἐσμὲν ὑποστολῆς)

Lit. we are not of shrinking back. Ὑποστολὴ N.T.o, olxx, oClass. Ἒιναι with genitive marks the quality or peculiarity of a person or thing. Comp. Hebrews 12:11 χαρᾶς εἶναι to be of joy, joyful. We do not partake of drawing back, which is characteristic of recreants.

Unto perdition (εἰς ἀπώλειαν)

Or destruction. Drawing back makes for and terminates in (εἰς) destruction.

Of them that believe (πίστεως)

Rend. of faith. The phrase εἶναι πίστεως to be of faith, N.T.o.

Saving (περιποίησιν)

See on 1 Thessalonians 5:9.
