“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:38 Now the just - The justified person. Shall live - In God's favour, a spiritual and holy life. By faith - As long as he retains that gift of God. But if he draw back - If he make shipwreck of his faith My soul hath no pleasure in him - That is, I abhor him; I cast him off. #Hab 2:3|, &c.
Heb 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith. See Hab 2:4. Those who continued to walk in the full assurance of faith shall live by faith (Heb 10:22). But if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. He who draws back through fear, or because of trial, in him God hath no pleasure. See Ps 5:4.
