Hebrews 12:4 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood - Many of those already mentioned were martyrs for the truth; they persevered unto death, and lost their lives in bearing testimony to the truth. Though you have had opposition and persecution, yet you have not been called, in bearing your testimony against sin and sinners, to seal the truth with your blood.
Striving against sin - Προς την ἁμαρτιαν ανταγωνι ζομενοι· An allusion to boxing at the Grecian games. In the former passages the apostle principally refers to the foot races.

The Shameful Sufferer
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death-- even death on a cross!
Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering.
Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated.
Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore.
