    De 32:2 Ps 68:17 Ac 7:53 Ga 3:19

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    Porque si la palabra dicha por el ministerio de los ngeles, fue firme, y toda rebelin y desobediencia recibi justa paga de su galardn,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 2:2

    Verse 2. If the word spoken by
    angels] The law, (according to some,) which was delivered by the mediation of angels, God frequently employing these to communicate his will to men. See Acts vii. 53; and Gal. iii. 19.

    But the apostle probably means those particular messages which God sent by angels, as in the case of Lot, Gen. xix. , and such like.

    Was steadfast] Was so confirmed by the Divine authority, and so strict, that it would not tolerate any offense, but inflicted punishment on every act of transgression, every case in which the bounds laid down by the law, were passed over; and every act of disobedience in respect to the duties enjoined.

    Received a just recompense] That kind and degree of punishment which the law prescribed for those who broke it.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast , etc..] This is a description of the law, from whence the apostle argues to a stricter regard to the Gospel, as from the lesser to the greater: this is called the word, and a terrible one it was; it was a voice of words, which they that heard entreated they might hear no more; it was the word spoken with an articulate voice, and was heard by the Israelites, and it was spoken by angels. Jehovah the Father's voice was never heard; when he came to give the law, ten thousand angels came along with him; and the ministry of these he used in the delivery of the law; by them he spoke it; they formed in the air the voices heard; it was ordained by them, and given by the disposition of them; (see Acts 7:53 Galatians 3:19). To which agree those words of Herod, spoken to the Jews, recorded by Josephus f26 ; that we learn of God, di' aggelwn , by angels, the best of doctrines, and the most holy things in the law. And this was steadfast; firm, and sure, being the word of God, which cannot pass away, until it be fulfilled: it was confirmed by terrible signs attending it, and by the people's assent unto it; the penalty of it is sure and certain, in case of disobedience; and as to the form and ministration of it, it remained until Christ, the end of it, came; and as to the matter of it, so far as of a moral nature, it still remains: the judicial and ceremonial parts of it are abrogated; and the whole of it is abolished, as in the hands of Moses, and as a covenant of works, and as to the curse and condemnation of it, and with respect to justification by it; but it still continues as a cursing law to all that are under it; and as a means of conviction to sinners in the hands of the Spirit; and as a rule of walk and conversation to saints, as in the hands of Christ: and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward ; every precept of the law had a penalty annexed to it; and every breach of it was punished as that penalty required; and that according to the strict justice of God, and the just demerit of sin; and none escaped, but suffered the punishment due to the violation of the precept either in themselves, or in their surety; so steadfast and immovable was this law.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 -
    Christ being proved to be superior to the angels, this doctrine i applied. Our minds and memories are like a leaky vessel, they do not without much care, retain what is poured into them. This proceeds from the corruption of our nature, temptations, worldly cares, an pleasures. Sinning against the gospel is neglect of this grea salvation; it is a contempt of the saving grace of God in Christ making light of it, not caring for it, not regarding either the worth of gospel grace, or the want of it, and our undone state without it The Lord's judgments under the gospel dispensation are chiefl spiritual, but are on that account the more to be dreaded. Here is a appeal to the consciences of sinners. Even partial neglects will no escape rebukes; they often bring darkness on the souls they do no finally ruin. The setting forth the gospel was continued and confirme by those who heard Christ, by the evangelists and apostles, who wer witnesses of what Jesus Christ began both to do and to teach; and by the gifts of the Holy Ghost, qualified for the work to which they wer called. And all this according to God's own will. It was the will of God that we should have sure ground for our faith, and a stron foundation for our hope in receiving the gospel. Let us mind this on thing needful, and attend to the Holy Scriptures, written by those wh heard the words of our gracious Lord, and were inspired by his Spirit then we shall be blessed with the good part that cannot be taken away.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. The word spoken by
    angels (o di aggellwn lalhqeiv logov). The Mosaic legislation which was conveyed through the mediation of angels. Comp. Deut. xxxiii. 2; Acts vii. 38, 53; Gal. iii. 19, on which see note. The agency of angels indicates the limitations of the legal dispensation; its character as a dispensation of the flesh. Hence its importance in this discussion. The abolition of the old limitations is the emancipation of man from subordination to the angels. The O.T. is made to furnish proof that such subordination is inconsistent with man's ultimate destiny to sovereignty over all creation.

    Was steadfast (egeneto bebaiov). Rend. proved sure: realized itself in the event as securely founded in the divine holiness, and eternal in its principles and obligations. Comp. Matt. v. 18.

    Transgression and disobedience (parabasiv kai parakoh).

    Parabasiv is a stepping over the line; the violation of a positive divine enactment. See on Rom. ii. 23. Parakoh only in Paul and Hebrews, is a disobedience which results from neglecting to hear; from letting things drift by. It is noticeable how often in O.T. obedience is described as hearing, and disobedience as refusing to hear. See Exod. xv. 26; xix. 5, 8; xxiii. 22; Josh. i. 18; Isa. xxviii. 12; xxx. 9; Jer. xi. 10; xxxii. 23; xxxv. 16. Comp. Acts vii. 57.

    A just recompense of reward (endikon misqatodosian). Endikos just, only here and Rom. iii. 8. o LXX, quite frequent in Class., but mainly in poetry. The meaning is substantially the same as dikaiov as it appears in the familiar phrase dikaiov eijmiwith the infinitive: thus, dikaiov eijmi kolazein I am right to punish, that is, I have a right, etc., right or justice being regarded as working within a definite circle. Misqapodosia recompense only in Hebrews. Comp. x. 35; xi. 26. o LXX, o Class., where the word is, misqodosia. From misqov wages and ajpodidonai to pay off or discharge. The reference is, primarily, to the punishments suffered by the Israelites in the wilderness. Comp. ch. iii. 16; x. 28 1 Corinthians x. 5, 6.
