36Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but must endure God’s wrath.

36. hath everlasting life—already has it. (See on Joh 3:18 and Joh 5:24).

shall not see life—The contrast here is striking: The one has already a life that will endure for ever—the other not only has it not now, but shall never have it—never see it.

abideth on him—It was on Him before, and not being removed in the only possible way, by "believing on the Son," it necessarily remaineth on him! Note.—How flatly does this contradict the teaching of many in our day, that there neither was, nor is, anything in God against sinners which needed to be removed by Christ, but only in men against God!
