Hebrews 13:15 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

By him therefore (δἰ αὐτοῦ)

Rend. "through him." Omit therefore. A.V. follows T.R. οὖν. Through Jesus, and not through the Jewish ritual.

Let us offer (ἀναφέρωμεν)

Lit. bring up the offering to the altar. See James 2:21, where the full phrase occurs. For the phrase offer up through Jesus Christ, comp. 1 Peter 2:5.

Ἄινεσις praise, N.T.o. Often in lxx, oClass. For "the sacrifice" rend. "a sacrifice." The sacrifice of thanksgiving is to take the place of the animal sacrifice. For the emphasis on thanksgiving in N.T. see Ephesians 5:20; Colossians 1:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:18. The Rabbins had a saying, "in the future time all sacrifices shall cease; but praises shall not cease." Philo says: "They offer the best sacrifice who glorify with hymns the savior and benefactor, God."

That is the fruit of our lips (τουτέστιν καρπὸν χειλέων)

Omit our. From lxx of Hosea 14:3, where the Hebrew reads, "we will account our lips as calves" (offered in sacrifice). Comp. Isaiah 57:19.

Giving thanks to his name (ὁμολογούντων τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ)
