Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;









(29) In danger of eternal damnation.--Better, eternal judgment, the Greek word not necessarily carrying with it the thoughts that now attach to the English. The best MSS., however, give, "in danger of an eternal sin"--i.e., of one which will, with its consequences, extend throughout the ages. It is, of course, more probable that a transcriber should have altered "sin" into "judgment," substituting an easier for a more difficult rendering, than the converse.

Verse 29. - Hath never forgiveness. Not that any sinner need despair of forgiveness through the fear that he may have committed this sin; for his repentance shows that his state of mind has never been one of entire enmity, and that he has not so grieved the Holy Spirit as to have been entirely forsaken by him. But is in danger of eternal damnation. The Greek words, according to the most approved reading, are ἀλλ ἔνοχός ἐστιν αἰωνίου ἁμαρτήματος: but is guilty of an eternal sin; thus showing that there are sins of which the effects and the punishment belong to eternity. He is bound by a chain or' sin from which he can never be loosed. (See St. John 9:41, "Therefore your sin remaineth.")
