2 Peter 2:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Godly (εὐσεβεῖς)

Used by Peter only. Compare Acts 10:2, Acts 10:7. The reading at Acts 22:12, is εὐλαβής, devout. See on 2 Peter 1:3.

Temptation (πειρασμοῦ)

See on 1 Peter 1:6.

To reserve (τηρεῖν)

See on 1 Peter 1:4. Rev., keep, is not an improvement.

To be punished (κολαζομένους)

Only here and Acts 4:21, where the narrative probably came from Peter. The participle here is, lit., being punished, and therefore the A. V. is wrong. Rev., rightly, under punishment. Compare Matthew 25:46.
