 as in the first Epistle to the Corinthians, profession has prominence. (Hebrews 3:14-19 by W. Kelly)
 as the Gentile saints are so dealt with in Corinth, so here are the Hebrews that bore the name of the Lord Jesus. Therefore, as has been often remarked, the " ifs " which so abound in this context as elsewhere. Faith profits by the admonitions which flesh takes lightly to its fall in the desert. Where the tie of life and love was never formed between Christ and the soul, the need of grace and mercy is not felt; glory on high fades into nothingness as the earth rises before the heart as a place of present enjoyment in desire, if not effectively. (Hebrews 3:14-19 by W. Kelly)
 the assurance here insisted on as proper, necessary, and incumbent from first to last is grounded on the glorified Lord Jesus, our propitiation and our high priest, on the divine dignity of His Person and the accepted efficacy of His work for us, leading, as He undertook, many sons to glory. One can hardly therefore find doctrine more opposed to the gospel than a preliminary denial of that assurance which every Christian is solemnly exhorted, not merely to have, but to hold fast and firm to the end. (Hebrews 3:14-19 by W. Kelly)

J. N. Darby Translation

For we are become companionsi of the Christ if indeed we hold the beginning of the assurance firm to the end;

JND Translation Notes

Metochos, as ch. 1.9 (quoting Ps. 45.7), to which it alludes. It is not "partakers of Christ."

W. Kelly Translation

For we are become companions of Christ if indeed we hold fast the beginning of the confidence firm unto the end1.

WK Translation Notes

companions: The word often translated ["partakers"] is the same as is quoted from the Greek version of Psalm 45 in chap. 1:9. "Companion" would be more modern English... (Exp. of Heb., p.61)
companions: as "partakers of Christ" has quite a different meaning, would it not have been better to have adopted throughout, as in 1:9, a more suitable rendering? "Fellows" from Psa. 14 is scarcely desireable. Partners or companions might be used. (Bible Treasury 14:45)
companions: [The American correctors of the RV] might have well pointed out also the loss of connection in 14 with 1:9, which all the old English Versions fail to keep up; not to speak of marking in the best way the links of the closing verses. (Bible Treasury 15:30)
