    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:14

    que guardes el mandamiento sin mcula ni reprensin, hasta que aparezca nuestro Seor Jess, el Cristo,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Timothy 6:14

    Verse 14. That thou keep this
    commandment without spot] Two things are mentioned here: 1. That the commandment itself-the whole doctrine of Christ, should be kept entire. 2. That his life should be agreeable to that doctrine. Keep it without spot - let there be no blot on the sacred book; add nothing to it; take nothing from it; change nothing in it. Deliver down to thy successors the truth as thou hast had it from God himself.

    Unrebukable] Let there be nothing in thy conduct or spirit contrary to this truth. Keep the truth, and the truth will keep thee.

    Until the appearing of our Lord] Hand it down pure, and let thy conduct be a comment on it, that it may continue in the world and in the Church till the coming of Christ.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. That thou keep this commandment , etc.] Meaning either what he had now last of all enjoined him, to fight the good fight of faith; or the whole of the orders he had given him throughout the epistle, relating both to the doctrine and discipline of the house of God; or rather the work and office of preaching the Gospel, which was committed to him by the Holy Ghost, and enjoined him by the commandment of the everlasting God: and this the apostle, before God and Christ, charges him to observe and keep, in the following manner, without spot, and unrebukeable ; the sense is, that he would discharge his ministerial function with all faithfulness and purity; that he would sincerely, and without any adulteration, preach the pure Gospel of Christ; and that he would so behave in his life and conversation, that his ministry might not be justly blamed by men, or he be rebuked by the church here, or by Christ hereafter: and this he would have him do, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ ; to judge the quick and dead at the last day, and which will be very illustrious and glorious. Now Christ is hid from the eyes of men, but to them that look for him he will appear a second time in great glory; in the glory of his Father, and of his own, and of the holy angels; and when his saints will appear with him in glory: and this the apostle the rather mentions, since every man's work and ministry will then be made manifest; this bright day of Christ's appearing will declare it, and everyone must give an account of himself, and his talents, unto him: and this shows that the apostle did not design this charge, and these instructions, for Timothy only, but for all other ministers of the Gospel, till the second coming of Christ; though this was then, as now, so much unknown, when it would be, that it could not be said but Timothy might live unto it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-16 - It
    ill becomes any men, but especially men of God, to set their heart upon the things of this world; men of God should be taken up with the things of God. There must be a conflict with corruption, an temptations, and the powers of darkness. Eternal life is the crow proposed for our encouragement. We are called to lay hold thereon. To the rich must especially be pointed out their dangers and duties, as to the proper use of wealth. But who can give such a charge, that is no himself above the love of things that wealth can buy? The appearing of Christ is certain, but it is not for us to know the time. Mortal eye cannot bear the brightness of the Divine glory. None can approach his except as he is made known unto sinners in and by Christ. The Godhea is here adored without distinction of Persons, as all these things ar properly spoken, whether of the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost. God is revealed to us, only in and through the human nature of Christ, a the only begotten Son of the Father.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    Commandment (entolhn). Usually of a single commandment or injunction, but sometimes for the whole body of the moral precepts of Christianity, as 2 Pet. ii. 21; iii. 2. The reference may be explained by hJ paraggelia the commandment, ch. i. 5, meaning the gospel as the divine standard of conduct and faith. Comp. 2 Tim. i. 14. The phrase threin thn ejntolhn to keep the commandment is Johannine. See John xiv. 15, 21; xv. 10; 1 John ii. 3, 4; iii. 22, 24; v. 3.

    Without spot (aspilon). Unsullied. Comp. Jas. i. 27; 1 Pet. i. 19; 2 Peter iii. 14.

    Appearing (epifaneiav). See on 2 Thess. ii. 8. In the Books of Macc. it is used to describe appearances and interventions Or God for the aid of his people. See 2 Macc. ii. 21; iii. 24; xiv. 15; xv. 27; 3 Macc. v. :8, 51. In 2 Tim. iv. 18, and Tit. ii. 13, it denotes, as here, the second coming of Christ. In 2 Tim. i. 10, his historical manifestation, for which also the verb ejpifainein is used, Tit. ii. 11; iii. 4. for the Lord is second advent Paul commonly uses parousia presence; once the verb faneroun to make manifest (Col. iii. 4), and once ajpokaluyiv revelation (2 Thess. i. 7). It is quite possible that the word ejpifaneia, so characteristic of these Epistles, grew out of the Gnostic vocabulary, in which it was used of the sudden appearing of the hitherto concealed heavenly aeon, Christ. This they compared to a sudden light from heaven; and Christ, who thus appeared, though only docetically, without an actual fleshly body, was styled swthr savior, although his oneness with the God of creation was denied. The Creator and the Redeemer were not the same, but were rather opposed. Christ was only a factor of a great cosmological process of development. As Neander observes: "The distinctive aim of the Gnostics was to apprehend the appearance of Christ and the new creation proceeding from him in their connection with the evolution of the whole universe."

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:14 {That thou keep} (teresai se). First aorist active infinitive of terew, with accusative of general reference (se) in indirect command after paraggellw. {Without spot} (aspilon). Late adjective (a privative, spilos, spot, #Eph 5:27). In inscription and papyri. {Without reproach} (anepilempton). See #3:2; 5:7. {Until the appearing} (mecri tes epifaneias). "Until the epiphany" (the second epiphany or coming of Christ). Late word in inscriptions for important event like the epiphany of Caligula, in the papyri as a medical term. In #2Th 2:18 we have both epifaneia and parousia. See #Tit 2:13; 2Ti 1:10; 4:1,8.
