Hebrews 6:8

that which—rather as Greek (no article), "But if it (the 'land,' Hebrews 6:7) bear"; not so favorable a word as "bringeth forth," Hebrews 6:7, said of the good soil.

briers—Greek, "thistles."

rejected—after having been tested; so the Greek implies. Reprobate . . . rejected by the Lord.

nigh unto cursing—on the verge of being given up to its own barrenness by the just curse of God. This "nigh" softens the severity of the previous "It is impossible," etc. (Hebrews 6:4, Hebrews 6:6). The ground is not yet actually cursed.

whose—"of which (land) the end is unto burning," namely, with the consuming fire of the last judgment; as the land of Sodom was given to "brimstone, salt, and burning" (Deuteronomy 29:23); so as to the ungodly (Matthew 3:10, Matthew 3:12; Matthew 7:19; Matthew 13:30; John 15:6; II Peter 3:10). Jerusalem, which had so resisted the grace of Christ, was then nigh unto cursing, and in a few years was burned. Compare Matthew 22:7, "burned up their city" an earnest of a like fate to all wilful abusers of God's grace (Hebrews 10:26-27).
