Hebrews 10:28 Meaning and Commentary

Hebrews 10:28

He that despised Moses' law
By breaking it wilfully, and presumptuously, for which there was no sacrifice; meaning the law which Moses was the minister of not the author; and it respects the whole body of laws given by him, from God; and is instanced in for the sake of the comparison between him and Christ, and between the law and the Gospel, and for the illustration of the case in hand. Now one that transgressed that law, either in whole, or in part, by denying it entirely, or by breaking any particular precept of it presumptuously,

died without mercy;
a corporeal death; there was no atonement nor sacrifice for him, nor pity to be shown him, ( Deuteronomy 13:8 ) ( 19:13 ) .

Under two or three witnesses;
who "stood by", or were present, as the Arabic version renders it, when the transgression was committed; or that "accused him", as the Ethiopic version; that were witnesses against him, and plainly and fully proved the fact, ( Deuteronomy 17:6 ) ( 19:15 ) .

27 There's only a scary expectation of judgment and of a burning fire that's going to devour God's opponents.
28 When someone rejected the Law from Moses, they were put to death without mercy on the basis of the testimony of two or three witnesses.
29 How much worse punishment do you think is deserved by the person who walks all over God's Son, who acts as if the blood of the covenant that made us holy is just ordinary blood, and who insults the Spirit of grace?
30 We know the one who said, Judgment is mine; I will pay people back. And he also said, The Lord will judge his people.
