    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:8

    (porque este justo, con ver y oír, morando entre ellos, afligía cada día su alma justa con los hechos de aquellos injustos);

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 2:8

    Verse 8. That
    righteous man dwelling among them] Lot, after his departure from Abraham, A. M. 2086, lived at Sodom till A. M. 2107, a space of about twenty years; and, as he had a righteous soul, he must have been tormented with the abominations of that people from day to day.

    The word ebasanizen, tormented, is not less emphatic than the word kataponoumenon, grievously pained, in the preceding verse, and shows what this man must have felt in dwelling so long among a people so abandoned.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. For that righteous man dwelling among them , etc.] Which is sometimes the lot of good men, to their great sorrow and grief, ( <19C005> Psalm 120:5-7 Isaiah 6:5). Upon mentioning those words in ( Genesis 13:12,13) and pitched his tent towards Sodom, but the men of Sodom were wicked, etc. says R. Eleazar f32 ; he is a righteous man that dwells between two wicked men, and does not learn their works; and such an one was Lot, whatever they are elsewhere pleased to say of him: in seeing and hearing; the Vulgate Latin version reads this in connection with the word righteous, thus, in seeing and hearing he was righteous: he could not bear to see their filthy actions, and hear their obscene language, but turned away from them, and shut his eyes, and stopped his ears, by which he appears to be a righteous and good man; though rather this belongs to what follows, seeing their wicked practices, and hearing their filthy talk: vexed his righteous soul from, day today with their unlawful deeds ; either they vexed him, as the Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions read; or rather he vexed himself; he fretted and teased himself, and became exceeding uneasy, and was put upon a rack and tortured, as the word signifies, continually, with their wicked actions; (see <19B9158> Psalm 119:158).

    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.
