    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:3

    Traed pues muchas veces a vuestro pensamiento a aquel que sufri tal contradiccin de pecadores contra sí mismo, para que no os fatiguis en vuestros nimos desmayando.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 12:3

    Verse 3. For consider him] analogisasqe-ina mh kamhte, taiv yucaiv-eklumenoi? Attentively observe and analyze every part of his
    conduct, enter into his spirit, examine his motives and object, and remember that, as he acted, ye are called to act; he will furnish you with the same Spirit, and will support you with the same strength. He bore a continual opposition of sinners against himself; but he conquered by meekness, patience, and perseverance: he has left you an example that ye should follow his steps. If ye trust in him, ye shall receive strength; therefore, howsoever great your opposition may be, ye shall not be weary: if ye confide in and attentively look to him, ye shall have continual courage to go on, and never faint in your minds.

    Here is a continued allusion to the contenders in the Grecian games, who, when exhausted in bodily strength and courage, yielded the palm to their opponents, and were said kamnein, to be weary or exhausted; ekluesqai, to be dissolved, disheartened, or to have lost all bravery and courage.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. For consider him , etc..] In the greatness of his person, as God, the Son of God, the heir of all things; and in his offices of prophet, priest, and King, as the Saviour of lost sinners, the Leader and Commander of the people, as the apostle and high priest of our profession: consider him in his human nature, his conversation on earth, and what he did and suffered for men; how that in his nature he was pure and holy, in his conversation harmless and innocent, in his deportment meek and lowly; who went about doing good to the souls of men, and at last suffered and died, and is now glorified: consider the analogy between him and us, and how great is the disproportion; and therefore if he was ill treated, no wonder we should consider him under all his reproaches and sufferings: that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself ; against his person, they denying his deity, and speaking against his sonship, and against his offices; mocking him as a King, deriding him as a prophet, and treating him with the utmost contempt as a priest and Saviour; and against his actions, his works of mercy to the bodies of men, when done on the sabbath day; his conversing with sinners for the good of their souls, as if he was an encourager of them in sin, and a partner with them; his miracles, as if they were done by the help of the devil; and against the whole series of his life, as if it was criminal. Now we should analogize this contradiction, and see what proportion there is between this, and what is endured by us: we should consider the aggravations of it, that it was against himself; sometimes it was against his disciples, and him through them, as it is now against his members, and him in them; but here it was immediately and directly against himself: and this he endured from sinners; some more secret, as the Scribes, Sadducees, and Pharisees; some more open, as the common people; some of them the vilest of sinners, the most abandoned of creatures, as the Roman soldiers, and Herod's men of war: and this should be considered, that we cannot be contradicted by viler or meaner persons; and it is worthy of notice, with what courage and bravery of mind, with what patience and invincible constancy he endured it: this should be recollected for imitation and encouragement, lest ye be wearied, and faint in your minds ; contradiction is apt to make persons weary and faint, as Rebekah was, because of the daughters of Heth, and as Jeremiah was, because of the derision of the Jews, ( Genesis 27:46 Jeremiah 20:8,9) but a consideration of Jesus, and of what he has endured, tends to relieve the saints in such a condition; (see Matthew 10:25 Luke 23:31).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The persevering obedience of
    faith in Christ, was the race set befor the Hebrews, wherein they must either win the crown of glory, or have everlasting misery for their portion; and it is set before us. By the sin that does so easily beset us, understand that sin to which we ar most prone, or to which we are most exposed, from habit, age, or circumstances. This is a most important exhortation; for while a man' darling sin, be it what it will, remains unsubdued, it will hinder his from running the Christian race, as it takes from him every motive for running, and gives power to every discouragement. When weary and fain in their minds, let them recollect that the holy Jesus suffered, to save them from eternal misery. By stedfastly looking to Jesus, their thoughts would strengthen holy affections, and keep under their carna desires. Let us then frequently consider him. What are our littl trials to his agonies, or even to our deserts? What are they to the sufferings of many others? There is a proneness in believers to gro weary, and to faint under trials and afflictions; this is from the imperfection of grace and the remains of corruption. Christians shoul not faint under their trials. Though their enemies and persecutors ma be instruments to inflict sufferings, yet they are Divin chastisements; their heavenly Father has his hand in all, and his wis end to answer by all. They must not make light of afflictions, and be without feeling under them, for they are the hand and rod of God, an are his rebukes for sin. They must not despond and sink under trials nor fret and repine, but bear up with faith and patience. God may le others alone in their sins, but he will correct sin in his ow children. In this he acts as becomes a father. Our earthly parent sometimes may chasten us, to gratify their passion, rather than to reform our manners. But the Father of our souls never willingly grieve nor afflicts his children. It is always for our profit. Our whole lif here is a state of childhood, and imperfect as to spiritual things therefore we must submit to the discipline of such a state. When we come to a perfect state, we shall be fully reconciled to all God' chastisement of us now. God's correction is not condemnation; the chastening may be borne with patience, and greatly promote holiness Let us then learn to consider the afflictions brought on us by the malice of men, as corrections sent by our wise and gracious Father, for our spiritual good.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    3. For consider (analogisasqe gar). Gar for introduces the reason for the exhortation to look unto
    Jesus. Look unto him, for a comparison with him will show you how much more he had to endure than you have. Analogizesqai N.T.o . Comp. 3 Macc. vii. 7. It means to reckon up; to consider in the way of comparison.

    Contradiction of sinners (upo twn amartwlwn antilogian).

    Contradiction or gainsaying. See on ch. vi. 16, and comp. ch. vii. 7. See on gainsaying, Jude 11. Of sinners, uJpo by, at the hands of.

    Against himself (eiv eautouv). According to this text we should render "against themselves." Comp. Num. xvi. 38. The explanation will then be that Christ endured the gainsaying of sinners, who, in opposing him, were enemies of their own souls. The reading eJautouv however, is doubtful, and both Tischendorf and Weiss read eJauton himself, which I prefer. Lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds ( ina mh kamhte taiv yucaiv umwn ekluomenoi). Rend. "that ye be not weary, fainting in your minds."'Ekluein is to loosen, hence, to relax, exhaust. So often in LXX. See Deut. xx. 3; Judg. viii. 15; 1 Sam. xiv. 28. Comp. Matt. xv. 32; Mark viii. 3; Gal. vi. 9.
