    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:15

    Y librar a los que por el temor de la muerte estaban por toda la vida sujetos a servidumbre.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 2:15

    Verse 15. And
    deliver them who through fear of death] It is very likely that the apostle has the Gentiles here principally in view. As they had no revelation, and no certainty of immortality, they were continually in bondage to the fear of death. They preferred life in any state, with the most grievous evils, to death, because they had no hope beyond the grave.

    But it is also true that all men naturally fear death; even those that have the fullest persuasion and certainty of a future state dread it: genuine Christians, who know that, if the earthly house of their tabernacle were dissolved, they have a house not made with hands, a building framed of God, eternal in the heavens, only they fear it not. In the assurance they have of God's love, the fear of death is removed; and by the purification of their hearts through faith, the sting of death is extracted. The people who know not God are in continual torment through the fear of death, and they fear death because they fear something beyond death. They are conscious to themselves that they are wicked, and they are afraid of God, and terrified at the thought of eternity. By these fears thousands of sinful, miserable creatures are prevented from hurrying themselves into the unknown world. This is finely expressed by the poet:- "To die, - to sleep, - No more: - and, by a sleep, to say we end The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to, - 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To die, - to sleep, - To sleep! - perchance to dream; - ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause: - There's the respect That makes calamity of so long life: For who could bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office, and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear To grunt and sweat under a weary life; But that the dread of something after death, - The undiscovered country from whose bourn No traveler returns,--puzzles the will; And makes us rather bear those ills we have, Than fly to others that we know not of? Thus conscience does make cowards of us all; And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought; And enterprises of great pith and moment, With this regard, their currents turn awry And lose the name of action." I give this long quotation from a poet who was well acquainted with all the workings of the human heart; and one who could not have described scenes of distress and anguish of mind so well, had he not passed through them.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And deliver them, who through fear of death , etc..] This is another end of Christ's assuming human nature, and dying in it, and thereby destroying Satan, that he might save some out of his hands: [who] were all their lifetime subject to bondage ; meaning chiefly God's elect among the Jews; for though all men are in a state of bondage to the lusts of the flesh, and are Satan's captives; yet this describes more particularly the state of the Jews, under the law of Moses, which gendered unto bondage; which they being guilty of the breach of, and seeing the danger they were exposed to on that account, were subject, bound, and held fast in and under a spirit of bondage: and that through fear of death; through fear of a corporeal death; through fear of chastisements and afflictions, the forerunners of death, and what sometimes bring it on; and through fear of death itself, as a disunion of soul and body, and as a penal evil; and through fear of what follows it, an awful judgment: and this the Jews especially were in fear of, from their frequent violations of the precepts, both of the moral, and of the ceremonial law, which threatened with death; and this they lived in a continual fear of, because they were daily transgressing, which brought on them a spirit of bondage unto fear: and, as Philo the Jew observes, nothing more brings the mind into bondage than the fear of death: and many these, even all the chosen ones among them, Christ delivered, or saved from sin, from Satan, from the law, and its curses, from death corporeal, as a penal evil, and from death eternal; even from all enemies and dangers, and brought them into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-18 - The
    angels fell, and remained without hope or help. Christ neve designed to be the Saviour of the fallen angels, therefore he did no take their nature; and the nature of angels could not be an atonin sacrifice for the sin of man. Here is a price paid, enough for all, an suitable to all, for it was in our nature. Here the wonderful love of God appeared, that, when Christ knew what he must suffer in our nature and how he must die in it, yet he readily took it upon him. And thi atonement made way for his people's deliverance from Satan's bondage and for the pardon of their sins through faith. Let those who drea death, and strive to get the better of their terrors, no longer attemp to outbrave or to stifle them, no longer grow careless or wicke through despair. Let them not expect help from the world, or huma devices; but let them seek pardon, peace, grace, and a lively hope of heaven, by faith in Him who died and rose again, that thus they ma rise above the fear of death. The remembrance of his own sorrows an temptations, makes Christ mindful of the trials of his people, an ready to help them. He is ready and willing to succour those who ar tempted, and seek him. He became man, and was tempted, that he might be every way qualified to succour his people, seeing that he had passe through the same temptations himself, but continued perfectly free from sin. Then let not the afflicted and tempted despond, or give place to Satan, as if temptations made it wrong for them to come to the Lord in prayer. Not soul ever perished under temptation, that cried unto the Lord from real alarm at its danger, with faith and expectation of relief. This is our duty upon our first being surprised by temptations and would stop their progress, which is our wisdom __________________________________________________________________
