    Jer 23:20

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:2

    porque vosotros sabis bien, que el día del Seor vendr como ladrn de noche,

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - It is needless or useless to ask about the particular
    time of Christ' coming. Christ did not reveal this to the apostles. There are times an seasons for us to work in, and these are our duty and interest to know and observe; but as to the time when we must give up our account, we know it not, nor is it needful that we should. The coming of Chris will be a great surprise to men. Our Lord himself said so. As the hou of death is the same to each person that the judgment will be to mankind in general, so the same remarks answer for both. Christ' coming will be terrible to the ungodly. Their destruction will overtak them while they dream of happiness, and please themselves with vai amusements. There will be no means to escape the terror or the punishment of that day. This day will be a happy day to the righteous They are not in darkness; they are the children of the light. It is the happy condition of all true Christians. But how many are speaking peac and safety to themselves, over whose heads utter destruction i hovering! Let us endeavour to awaken ourselves and each other, an guard against our spiritual enemies.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. Perfectly (akribwv). See on
    Luke i. 3.

    The day of the Lord (hmera kuriou). The day of Christ's second coming. In Paul's Epistles this is expressed by hJ hJmera the day, absolutely, 1 Thess. v. 4; 1 Cor. iii. 13; Rom. xiii. 12: hJ hJmera ejkeinh that day, 2 Thess. i. 10: hJmera cristou the day of Christ, Philip. i. 10; ii. 16: hJmera kuriou or tou kuriou day of the Lord, 1 Cor. v. 5; 1 Thess. v. 2; 2 Thess. ii. 2: hJmera tou kuriou hJmwn Ihsou (Cristou), 1 Cor. i. 8; 2 Corinthians i. 14. These expressions refer to a definite time when the Lord is expected to appear, and Paul expects this appearance soon. Attempts to evade this by referring such expressions to the day of death, or to the advance toward perfection after death until the final judgment, are forced, and are shaped by dogmatic conceptions of the nature of Biblical inspiration. 30 In the O.T. the phrase day of the Lord denotes a time in which God will conspicously manifest his power and goodness or his penal justice. See Isa. ii. 12; Ezek. xiii. 5; Joel i. 15; ii. 11; and comp. Rom. ii. 5. The whole class of phrases is rare in N.T. outside of Paul's Epistles. As a thief (wv klepthv). Comp. Matt. xxiv. 43; Luke xii. 39; 2 Peter iii. 10; Apoc. xvi. 15, and see on Apoc. iii. 3.

    In the night (en nukiti). The ancient church held that the advent was to be expected at night, on an Easter eve. This gave rise to the custom of vigils. Jerome, on Matt. xxv. 6, says: "It is a tradition of the Jews that Messiah will come at midnight, after the likeness of that season in Egypt when the Passover was celebrated, and the Destroyer came, and the Lord passed over the dwellings. I think that this idea was perpetuated in the apostolic custom, that, on the day of vigils, at the Pascha, it was not alloxved to dismiss the people before midnight, since they expected the advent of Christ."

    It is noteworthy how many of the gospel lessons on watchfulness are associated with the night and a visit by night. See Matt. xxiv. 43; xxv. 1-13; Mark xiii. 35; Luke xii. 35, 38; xvii. 34; xii. 90.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:2 {Know perfectly} (akribws oidate). Accurately know, not "the times and the seasons," but their own ignorance. {As a thief in the night} (hws kleptes en nukti). As a thief at night, suddenly and unexpectedly. Reminiscence of the word of Jesus (#Mt 24:43; Lu 12:39), used also in #2Pe 3:10; Re 3:3; 16:15. {Cometh} (ercetai). Prophetic or futuristic present tense.
