    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:18

    porque en cuanto l mismo padeci y fue tentado, es poderoso para socorrer tambin a los que son tentados.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 2:18

    Verse 18. For in that he himself hath
    suffered] The maxim on which this verse is founded is the following: A state of suffering disposes persons to be compassionate, and those who endure most afflictions are they who feel most for others. The apostle argues that, among other causes, it was necessary that Jesus Christ should partake of human nature, exposed to trials, persecutions, and various sufferings, that he might the better feel for and be led to succour those who are afflicted and sorely tried. This sentiment is well expressed by a Roman poet:-Me quoque per multas similis fortuna laboures Jactatam hac demum voluit consistere terra: Non ignara mali, miseris succurere disco. VIRG. AEn. i., v. 632.

    "For I myself like you, have been distress'd, Till heaven afforded me this place of rest; Like you, an alien in a land unknown, I learn to pity woes so like my own." DRYDEN.

    "There are three things," says Dr. Owen, "of which tempted believers do stand in need: 1. Strength to withstand their temptations; 2. Consolations to support their spirits under them; 3. Seasonable deliverance from them.

    Unto these is the succour afforded by our High Priest suited; and it is variously administered to them: 1. By his word or promises; 2. By his Spirit; (and, that, 1. By communicating to them supplies of grace or spiritual strength; 2. Strong consolation; 3. By rebuking their tempters and temptations;) and 3. By his providence disposing of all things to their good and advantage in the issue." Those who are peculiarly tempted and severely tried, have an especial interest in, and claim upon Christ. They, particularly, may go with boldness to the throne of grace, where they shall assuredly obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Were the rest of the Scripture silent on this subject, this verse might be an ample support for every tempted soul.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted , etc..] By Satan, at his entrance on his public ministry, and a little before his death; which was done, not by stirring up sin in him, for he had none, nor by putting any into him, which could not be done, nor could Satan get any advantage over him; he solicited him one thing and another, but in vain; though these temptations were very troublesome, and disagreeable, and abhorrent to the pure and holy nature of Christ, and so must be reckoned among his sufferings, or things by which he suffered: and as afflictions are sometimes called temptations, in this sense also Christ suffered, being tempted, with outward poverty and meanness, with slight and neglect from his own relations, and with a general contempt and reproach among men: he was often tempted by the Jews with ensnaring questions; he was deserted by his followers, by his own disciples, yea, by his God and Father; all which were great trials to him, and must be accounted as sufferings: and he also endured great pains of body, and anguish of mind, and at last death itself. And so he is able to succour them that are tempted ; as all the saints, more or less, are, both with Satan's temptations, and with afflictions in the world, which God suffers to befall them, on various accounts; partly on his own account, to show his grace, power, and faithfulness in supporting under them, and in delivering out of them; and partly on his Son's account, that they might be like unto him, and he may have an opportunity of succouring them, and sympathizing with them; and also on their own account, to humble them, to try their faith, to excite them to prayer and watchfulness, and to keep them dependent on the power and grace of God: and these Christ succours, by having and showing a fellow feeling with them; by praying for them; by supporting them under temptations; by rebuking the tempter, and delivering out of them: and all this he is able to do; he must be able to succour them as he is God; and his conquering Satan is a convincing evidence to the saints of his ability; but here it intends his qualification, and fitness, and readiness to help in such circumstances, from the experience he himself has had of these things.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    18. In that he himself hath
    suffered being tempted (en w gar peponqen autov peirasqeiv). Rend. for having himself been tempted in that which he suffered. The emphasis is on having been tempted. Christ is the succored of the tempted because he has himself been tempted. jEn w= is not inasmuch as, but means in that which. jEn w= peponqen qualifies peirasqeiv, explaining in what the temptation consisted, namely, in suffering. 178
