    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:2

    por la verdad que permanece en nosotros, y ser perpetuamente con nosotros:

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 John 1:2

    Verse 2. For the
    truth's sake] On account of the Gospel.

    Which dwelleth in us] By the grace which it has proclaimed.

    And shall be with us] For God will preserve not only the Christian religion but its truth, all its essential doctrines for ever. And they that abide in the truth shall go whither that truth leads, i.e. to glory. The Armenian has a strange reading here: "For the truth's sake which dwelleth in us, because it is also with you; and ye shall be with us for ever." But this is supported by no other version, nor by any MS.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us , etc.] Not for her high birth, nobility, or riches; but either for Christ's sake, who is the truth, and who dwells in the hearts of believers by faith, and who is the same that dwells in one as in another; and on his account it is that saints love one another, because they belong to him, he is formed in them, and his image is stamped upon them; and every like loves its like: or for the Gospel's sake, which has a place, and dwells in every saint, and is the same for matter and substance in one as in another; and unity of mind and judgment produces unity of affection: or for the sake of the truth of grace, the inward principle of grace, which dwells in every regenerate person; a communication of the experience of which knits the saints one to another: and shall be with us for ever ; where Christ enters and takes up his abode, from thence he never finally and totally departs, though he may sometimes hide his face with respect to communion, or withdraw his gracious presence; and where the Gospel has once took place in the heart, and is become the ingrafted word, it can never be rooted out, or be removed; and where the truth of grace is, it will remain; it is an incorruptible seed, a well of living water, springing up into eternal life.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-3 -
    Religion turns compliments into real expressions of respect and love And old disciple is honourable; an old apostle and leader of disciple is more so. The letter is to a noble Christian matron, and he children; it is well that the gospel should get among such: some nobl persons are called. Families are to be encouraged and directed in their love and duties at home. Those who love truth and piety in themselves should love it in others; and the Christians loved this lady, not for her rank, but for her holiness. And where religion truly dwells, it will abide for ever. From the Divine Persons of the Godhead, the apostle craves grace, Divine favour, and good-will, the spring of all good things. It is grace indeed that any spiritual blessing should be given to sinful mortals. Mercy, free pardon, and forgiveness; for thos already rich in grace, need continual forgiveness. Peace, quietness of spirit, and a clear conscience, in assured reconciliation with God together with all outward prosperity that is really for good: these ar desired in truth and love.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. Which dwelleth (thn menousan). Rev., abideth. Enlarging on the idea of the
    truth: that which abideth. See on 1 John iv. 9, on the phrase to abide in, see on 1 John ii. 6.

    Shall be with us (meq hmwn estai). With us has the emphatic position in the sentence: and with us it shall be. Note the change from abideth in to shall be with, and see on John xiv. 16, 17.
