Hebrews 11:36 Meaning and Commentary

Hebrews 11:36

And others had trial of cruel mockings
As Samson by the Philistines; Elisha by the children, whom the bears devoured; Jeremiah by Pashur, and others; the Jews by Sanballat and Tobiah, when building the temple; the prophets, whom God sent to the Jews, as his messengers, ( Judges 16:25-28 ) ( 2 Kings 2:23 2 Kings 2:24 ) ( Jeremiah 20:7 Jeremiah 20:8 ) ( 4:1-6 ) ( 2 Chronicles 36:15 2 Chronicles 36:16 ) . and scourgings;
or smitings, as Jeremiah and Micaiah, ( Jeremiah 20:22 ) ( 2 Chronicles 18:23 2 Chronicles 18:24 ) .

yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment;
as Joseph, Samson, and Jeremiah, ( Genesis 39:20 ) ( Judges 16:21 ) ( Jeremiah 20:2 ) ( 37:15 ) . Now of these things they had trial, or experience; their graces were tried by them, and they patiently endured them.

37 They were stoned to death, they were sawn in two, they were killed by the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, persecuted, tormented—
38 of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground.
