CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If they abide not in unbelief - So, we find that their rejection took place in consequence of their wilful obstinacy: and, that they may return into the fold, the door of which still stands open.

See what the apostle has said, 2 Corinthians 3:6-18.

If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,
After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!
2 Corinthians 3:16
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.
