2 Peter 2:6 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Turning into ashes (τεφρώσας)

Only here in New Testament.

Having made them an example (ὑπόδειγμα τεθεικώς)

Compare 1 Peter 2:21. The word for example is condemned as unclassical by the Attic grammarians, and παράδειγμα is substituted, which means, properly, a sculptor's or a painter's model, or an architect's plan.
