    y si conden por destruccin las ciudades de Sodoma y de Gomorra, tornndolas en ceniza, y ponindolas por ejemplo a los que habían de vivir sin temor y reverencia de Dios,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 2:6

    Verse 6. The cities of
    Sodom and Gomorrha] See the notes on Gen. 19, for an account of the sin and punishment of these cities.

    Making them an ensample] These three words, upodeigma, paradeigma, and deigma, are used to express the same idea; though the former may signify an example to be shunned, the second an example to be followed, and the third a simple exhibition. But these differences are not always observed.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes , etc.] By raining brimstone and fire upon them from heaven, ( Genesis 19:24) which soon reduced them to ashes, with Admah and Zeboiim, ( Deuteronomy 29:25), cities delightfully situated, which were as the garden of God, and the land of Egypt, together with the inhabitants of them; and after they had received a signal mercy, in being rescued by Abraham from the kings who had carried them captive; and though Abraham, the friend of God, interceded for them, and righteous Lot dwelt among them. The first of these cities is in the Hebrew language called Sedom; Philo the Jew calls it Sodoma, as in ( Romans 9:29) and in the Septuagint on ( Genesis 13:10 18:22 19:1 Isaiah 1:9) here it is said to be a city, and Josephus always calls it the city of the Sodomites, but in ( Matthew 10:15 11:24) we read of the land of Sodom; and so Philo the Jew speaks of cwra , the region or country of the Sodomites; here the word is of the plural number, as in ( Matthew 10:15 11:23,24) ( Luke 17:29) as it is also in the Septuagint in ( Genesis 10:19 13:13) ( Genesis 14:2,8,10-12,16,17,21,22) and in Philo the Jew f23 , and so is Gomorrah in some copies of this, place, as in ( Matthew 10:15). Solinus, the historian, gives an account of these cities, in agreement with this; a good way off of Jerusalem (he says f24 ) is opened a sorrowful gulf, which the black ground, in cinerem soluta, reduced to ashes, shows it to be touched by heaven; there were two towns, or cities, the one called Sodom, and the other Gomorrah; where an apple is produced, which, although it has an appearance of ripeness, cannot be eaten; for the outward skin that encompasses it only contains a sort of soot, or embers within, which, ever so lightly squeezed, evaporates into smoke and dust; and so the author of the book of Wisdom 10:7 speaking of the five cities, on which fire fell, says, of whose wickedness, even to this day, the waste land that smoketh is a testimony; and plants bearing fruit, that never come to ripeness.

    Philo the Jew says, that there are showed to this day in Syria monuments of this unspeakable destruction that happened; as ruins, ashes, sulphur, smoke, and a weak flame, breaking forth as of a fire burning: condemned [them] with an overthrow ; by this sad catastrophe God condemned the sins of those men of Sodom and Gomorrah, and condemned their persons to everlasting damnation; of which their temporal punishment was an emblem and figure; (see Jude 1:7), the word overthrow is generally used when this destruction is spoken of, ( Deuteronomy 29:23 Isaiah 13:19 Jeremiah 50:40 Amos 4:11) and therefore retained by the apostle here: making them ensamples unto those who after should live ungodly ; in the commission of any sins, and be open, bold, and impudent in them, and declare them as they did; and especially that should live in the commission of the same sins, those unnatural lusts and uncleannesses, which to this day go by the name of sodomy, and sodomitical practices; now the punishment of the inhabitants of these cities was an ensample to such wicked conduct, showing what they must expect, and was a representation of those everlasting burnings, which such sinners, as a righteous retaliation for their burning lusts, shall be cast into. The Jews say the same of the men of Sodom and Gomorrah as of the old world; the men of Sodom have no part in the world to come, as is said ( Genesis 13:13) but the men of Sodom were wicked, and sinners before the Lord exceedingly; wicked in this world, and sinners in the world to come; (See Gill on Jude 1:7).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - Though the way of error is a hurtful way, many are always ready to wal therein. Let us take care we give no occasion to the enemy to blasphem the holy name whereby we are called, or to speak evil of the way of salvation by Jesus Christ, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life These seducers used feigned words, they deceived the hearts of their followers. Such are condemned already, and the wrath of God abides upo them. God's usual method of proceeding is shown by examples. Angel were cast down from all their glory and dignity, for their disobedience. If creatures sin, even in heaven, they must suffer i hell. Sin is the work of darkness, and darkness is the wages of sin See how God dealt with the old world. The number of offenders no mor procures favour, than their quality. If the sin be universal, the punishment shall likewise extend to all. If in a fruitful soil the people abound in sin, God can at once turn a fruitful land int barrenness, and a well-watered country into ashes. No plans or politic can keep off judgments from a sinful people. He who keeps fire an water from hurting his people, Isa 43:2, can make either destroy his enemies; they are never safe. When God sends destruction on the ungodly, he commands deliverance for the righteous. In bad company we cannot but get either guilt or grief. Let the sins of others be troubles to us. Yet it is possible for the children of the Lord, livin among the most profane, to retain their integrity; there being mor power in the grace of Christ, and his dwelling in them, than in the temptations of Satan, or the example of the wicked, with all their terrors or allurements. In our intentions and inclinations to commi sin, we meet with strange hinderances, if we mark them When we inten mischief, God sends many stops to hinder us, as if to say, Take hee what you do. His wisdom and power will surely effect the purposes of his love, and the engagements of his truth; while wicked men ofte escape suffering here, because they are kept to the day of judgment, to be punished with the devil and his angels.

    6. Turning into
    ashes (tefrwsav). Only here in New Testament.

    Having made them an example (upodeigma teqeikwv). Compare 1 Peter ii. 21. The word for example is condemned as unclassical by the Attic grammarians, and paradeigma is substituted, which means, properly, a sculptor's or a painter's model, or an architect's plan.
