    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:17

    Así que vosotros, oh amados, pues estis amonestados, guardaos que por el error de los abominables no seis juntamente con los otros engaados, y caigis de vuestra firmeza.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 3:17

    Verse 17. Seeing ye know-before] Seeing that by
    prophets and apostles you have been thus forewarned, beware, fulassesqe, keep watch, be on your guard; cleave to God and the word of his grace, lest ye be led away from the truth delivered by the prophets and apostles, by the error of the wicked, aqesmwn, of the lawless - those who wrest the Scriptures to make them countenance their lusts, exorbitant exactions, and lawless practices.

    Fall from your own steadfastness.] From that faith in Christ which has put you in possession of that grace which establishes the heart.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know [these things] before , etc.] As that there will be such mockers and scoffers in the last days, and such unlearned and unstable men that will deprave the Scriptures, and wrest them in such a miserable manner: beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked ; from the simplicity of the Gospel, along with such wicked men, that wax worse and worse, deceivers and being deceived, by giving into any of their errors which respect the grace of God, or the person and offices of Christ, or particularly his second coming; be upon the watch and guard against them, having previous notice of them, for they lie in wait to deceive: lest ye fall from your own steadfastness ; which was proper to them, and which, by the grace of God, they had, and retained, both in the faith of Christ and doctrine of the Gospel; for though the saints can never finally and totally fall into sin, or from the truth, yet they may fall from their steadfastness, both as to the exercise of the grace of faith, and as to their profession of the doctrine of faith; and to be fluctuating, hesitating, and doubting in either respect, must be very uncomfortable and dishonourable.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-18 - From the
    doctrine of Christ's second coming, we are exhorted to purit and godliness. This is the effect of real knowledge. Very exact an universal holiness is enjoined, not resting in any low measure of degree. True Christians look for new heavens and a new earth; free from the vanity to which things present are subject, and the sin the are polluted with. Those only who are clothed with the righteousness of Christ, and sanctified by the Holy Ghost, shall be admitted to dwell in this holy place. He is faithful, who has promised. Those, whose sin are pardoned, and their peace made with God, are the only safe an happy people; therefore follow after peace, and that with all men follow after holiness as well as peace. Never expect to be found a that day of God in peace, if you are lazy and idle in this your day, in which we must finish the work given us to do. Only the diligen Christian will be the happy Christian in the day of the Lord. Our Lor will suddenly come to us, or shortly call us to him; and shall he fin us idle? Learn to make a right use of the patience of our Lord, who a yet delays his coming. Proud, carnal, and corrupt men, seek to wres some things into a seeming agreement with their wicked doctrines. But this is no reason why St. Paul's epistles, or any other part of the Scriptures, should be laid aside; for men, left to themselves, perver every gift of God. Then let us seek to have our minds prepared for receiving things hard to be understood, by putting in practice thing which are more easy to be understood. But there must be self-denial an suspicion of ourselves, and submission to the authority of Chris Jesus, before we can heartily receive all the truths of the gospel therefore we are in great danger of rejecting the truth. And whateve opinions and thoughts of men are not according to the law of God, an warranted by it, the believer disclaims and abhors. Those who are le away by error, fall from their own stedfastness. And that we may avoi being led away, we must seek to grow in all grace, in faith, an virtue, and knowledge. Labour to know Christ more clearly, and mor fully; to know him so as to be more like him, and to love him better This is the knowledge of Christ, which the apostle Paul reached after and desired to attain; and those who taste this effect of the knowledg of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, will, upon receiving such grac from him, give thanks and praise him, and join in ascribing glory to him now, in the full assurance of doing the same hereafter, for ever __________________________________________________________________
