    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:11

    Porque el que le dice bienvenido, participa con sus malas obras.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 John 1:11

    Verse 11. Is partaker of his
    evil deeds.] He that acts towards him as if he considered him a Christian brother, and sound in the faith, puts it in his power to deceive others, by thus apparently accrediting his ministry. No sound Christian should countenance any man as a Gospel minister, who holds and preaches erroneous doctrines; especially concerning the Lord Jesus. Nor can any Christian attend the ministry of such teachers without being criminal in the sight of God. He who attends their ministry is, in effect, bidding them God speed; no matter whether such belong to an established Church, or to any congregation of dissenters from it. But what St. John says here does not mean that we should deny such the common offices of humanity, charity, and mercy. No. In these offices we are equally bound to all men; far less does it intimate that we should persecute such on account of their heretical or heterodox sentiments. No. This right has God given to no man, to no Church, to no state. They who persecute others, even for the worst heretical opinions, may expect the heaviest judgments of Almighty God.

    There is a remarkable addition here in several MSS. Of the Vulgate, and in some printed editions. Ecce praedixi vobis, ut in diem Domini nostri Jesu Christi non confundamini. "Behold, I have foretold this to you, that ye may not be confounded in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ." This addition is found in the edition of Pope Sixtus the Fifth, and in the Complutensian Polyglot; but it is not acknowledged by any of the versions, nor by any Greek MSS.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. For he that biddeth him God speed , etc.] Wishes him well, and success in his ministry, or in a friendly and familiar way converses with him: is partaker of his evil deeds ; he has fellowship with him, instead of reproving or shunning him, as he ought; he is an abettor of him in his principles, and so far joins in the propagation of them, and helps to spread them, and gives too much reason to think he is one with him in them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-11 - The
    deceiver and his deceit are described: he brings some erro concerning the person or office of the Lord Jesus. Such a one is deceiver and an antichrist; he deludes souls, and undermines the glor and kingdom of the Lord Christ. Let us not think it strange, that ther are deceivers and opposers of the Lord Christ's name and dignity now for there were such, even in the apostles' times. The more deceiver and deceits abound, the more watchful the disciples must be. Sad it is that splendid attainments in the school of Christ, should ever be lost The way to gain the full reward is, to abide true to Christ, an constant in religion to the end. Firm cleaving to Christian trut unites us to Christ, and thereby to the Father also; for they are one Let us equally disregard such as abide not in the doctrine of Christ and those who transgress his commands. Any who did not profess an preach the doctrine of Christ, respecting him as the Son of God, an salvation by him from guilt and sin, were not to be noticed an countenanced. Yet in obeying this command, we must show kindness and good spirit to those who differ from us in lesser matters, but holy firmly the all-important doctrines of Christ's person, atonement, an holy salvation.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. Is partaker (koinwnei). The verb occurs nowhere else in John's writings. The
    kindred noun koinwnia fellowship, is peculiar to the First Epistle. See on 1 John i. 3; also on partners (Luke v. 10); fellowship (Acts ii. 42); partaker (1 Pet. v. 1.).

    Paper (cartou). Only here in the New Testament. The Egyptian papyrus or byblus, Cyperus papyrus, anciently very common, but not now found within the limits of the country. It is a tall, smooth flag or reed, with a large triangular stalk, containing the pith which furnished the paper. The paper was manufactured by cutting the pith into strips, arranging them horizontally, and then placing across them another layer of strips, uniting the two layers by a paste, and subjecting the whole to a heavy pressure. The upper and middle portions of the reed were used for this purpose. The fact that the plant is no longer found is significant in connection with Isaiah's prophecy that "the flags (Hebrews suph, papyrus) shall waste away" (Isa. xix. 6). The plant grew in shallow water or in marshes, and is accordingly represented on the monuments as at the side of a stream or in irrigated lands. 71 The Jews wrote on various materials, such as the leaves of the olive and palm, the rind of the pomegranate, and the skins of animals. The tablet (pinakidion, Luke i. 63) was in very common use. It consisted of thin pieces of wood, strung together, and either plain, or covered with papyrus or with wax.

    Ink (melanov). Lit., that which is black. The word occurs only once outside of John's Epistles (2 Cor. iii. 3), and only three times in all (2 John 12; 3 John 13). Ink was prepared of soot or of vegetable or mineral substances. Gum and vitriol were also used. Colored inks, red and gold, were also employed. 72 To come unto you (genesqai prov umav). Or, to be present with you. For the phrase, see 1 Cor. ii. 3; xvi. 10.

    Face to face (stoma prov stoma). Lit, mouth to mouth. Compare proswpon prov proswpon, face to face, 1 Cor. viii. 12. Full (peplhrwmenh). Rev., rightly, fulfilled.
