    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:9

    los cuales sern castigados de eterna perdicin por la presencia del Seor, y por la gloria de su potencia,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 1:9

    Verse 9. Who shall be
    punished] What this everlasting destruction consists in we cannot tell. It is not annihilation, for their being continues; and as the destruction is everlasting, it is an eternal continuance and presence of substantial evil, and absence of all good; for a part of this punishment consists in being banished from the presence of the Lord - excluded from his approbation, for ever; so that the light of his countenance can be no more enjoyed, as there will be an eternal impossibility of ever being reconciled to him.

    The glory of his power] Never to see the face of God throughout eternity is a heart-rending, soul-appalling thought; and to be banished from the glory of his power, that power the glory of which is peculiarly manifested in saving the lost and glorifying the faithful, is what cannot be reflected on without confusion and dismay. But this must be the lot of all who acknowledge not God, and obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction , &c.] With destruction both of soul and body, though not with the annihilation of either; their gnawing worm of conscience will never die, and the fire of divine wrath will never be quenched; the smoke of their torment will ascend for ever. Sin being committed against an infinite and eternal Being, will be infinite in its duration; nor will it cease to be in the persons punished, who will not be in the least reformed or purged from sin by punishment; which will make the continuance of it just and necessary. And these will be driven from the presence of the Lord ; as the former clause may express the punishment of sense the wicked will feel in their own breasts, this may intend the punishment of loss; or what they will be deprived of, the presence of the Lord, in which the happiness of angels, and of glorified saints lies; and may also signify how sudden and terrible their destruction will be. As soon as the Lord appears, they will perish at his presence like wax before the fire; and so awful will be his appearance, they will flee from it with the utmost terror, and call to the rocks and mountains to hide them from the face of the Lord, and to screen them from his wrath: and from the glory of his power ; or his glorious power, in which he shall come, and which will be exerted, and shown in raising the dead, and gathering all nations before him, in passing sentence on them, and in executing it. For he has power, as to save, so to destroy, as to glorify the bodies and souls of his saints, so to destroy the wicked, both body and soul, in hell; and the glory of his power will be seen in the one, as well as in the other. And now it will be, that tribulation will be rendered to the troublers of the Lord's people.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-10 -
    Religion, if worth anything, is worth every thing; and those have n religion, or none worth having, or know not how to value it, cannot find their hearts to suffer for it. We cannot by all our sufferings any more than by our services, merit heaven; but by our patience unde sufferings, we are prepared for the promised joy. Nothing more strongl marks a man for eternal ruin, than a spirit of persecution and enmit to the name and people of God. God will trouble those that trouble his people. And there is a rest for the people of God; a rest from sin an sorrow. The certainty of future recompence is proved by the righteousness of God. The thoughts of this should be terrible to wicke men, and support the righteous. Faith, looking to the great day, i enabled partly to understand the book of providence, which appear confused to unbelievers. The Lord Jesus will in that day appear from heaven. He will come in the glory and power of the upper world. Hi light will be piercing, and his power consuming, to all who in that da shall be found as chaff. This appearance will be terrible to those tha know not God, especially to those who rebel against revelation, an obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the great crim of multitudes, the gospel is revealed, and they will not believe it; of if they pretend to believe, they will not obey it. Believing the truth of the gospel, is in order to our obeying the precepts of the gospel Though sinners may be long spared, they will be punished at last. The did sin's work, and must receive sin's wages. Here God punishes sinner by creatures as instruments; but then, it will be destruction from the Almighty; and who knows the power of his anger? It will be a joyful da to some, to the saints, to those who believe and obey the gospel. I that bright and blessed day, Christ Jesus will be glorified and admire by his saints. And Christ will be glorified and admired in them. Hi grace and power will be shown, when it shall appear what he ha purchased for, and wrought in, and bestowed upon those who believe in him. Lord, if the glory put upon thy saints shall be thus admired, ho much more shalt thou be admired, as the Bestower of that glory! The glory of thy justice in the damnation of the wicked will be admired but not as the glory of thy mercy in the salvation of believers. Ho will this strike the adoring angels with holy admiration, and transpor thy admiring saints with eternal rapture! The meanest believer shal enjoy more than the most enlarged heart can imagine while we are here Christ will be admired in all those that believe, the meanest believe not excepted.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9. Shall be
    punished (dikhn tisousin). The verb (N.T.o .) means to pay or render. Lit. shall pay penalty.

    Everlasting destruction (oleqron aiwnion). The phrase nowhere else in N.T. In LXX, 4 Macc. x. 15. Rev. properly, eternal destruction. It is to be carefully noted that eternal and everlasting are not synonymous. See additional note at the end of this chapter.

    From the presence (apo proswpou). Or face. Apo from has simply the sense of separation. Not from the time of the Lord's appearing, nor by reason of the glory of his presence. Proswpon is variously translated in A.V. Mostly face: also presence, Acts iii. 13, 19; v. 41: person, Matthew xxii. 16; Luke xx. 21; Gal. ii. 6: appearance, 2 Cor. v. 12; x. 1; fashion, Jas. i. 11. The formula ajpo proswpou or tou proswpou occurs Acts iii. 19; v. 41; vii. 45; Apoc. vi. 16; xii. 14; xx. 11. In LXX, Gen. iii. 8; iv. 14, 16; Exod. xiv. 25, and frequently.

    Glory of his power (doxhv thv iscuov autou). For glory see on 1 Thessalonians ii. 12. Iscuv power, not often in Paul. It is indwelling power put forth or embodied, either aggressively or as an obstacle to resistance: physical power organized or working under individual direction. An army and a fortress are both ijscurov. The power inhering in the magistrate, which is put forth in laws or judicial decisions, is ijscuv, and makes the edicts ijscura valid and hard to resist. Dunamiv is the indwelling power which comes to manifestation in ijscuv The precise phrase used here does not appear elsewhere in N.T. In LXX, Isa. ii. 10, 19, 21. The power (dunamiv) and glory of God are associated in Matthew xxiv. 30; Mark xiii. 26; Luke xxi. 27; Apoc. iv. 11; xix. 1. Comp. kratov thv doxhv aujtou strength of his glory, Col. i. 11.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:9 {Who} (hoitines). Qualitative use, such as. Vanishing in papyri though surviving in Paul (#1Co 3:17; Ro 1:25; Ga 4:26; Php 4:3). {Shall suffer punishment} (diken tisousin). Future active of old verb tinw, to pay penalty (diken, right, justice), here only in N.T., but apotinw once also to repay #Phm 1:19. In the papyri dike is used for a case or process in law. this is the regular phrase in classic writers for paying the penalty. {Eternal destruction} (oleqron aiwnion). Accusative case in apposition with diken (penalty). this phrase does not appear elsewhere in the N.T., but is in IV Macc. 10:15 ton aiwnion tou turannou olethron the eternal destruction of the tyrant (Antiochus Epiphanes). Destruction (cf. #1Th 5:3) does not mean here annihilation, but, as Paul proceeds to show, separation {from the face of the Lord} (apo proswpou tou kuriou) and from the {glory of his might} (kai apo tes doxes tes iscuos autou), an eternity of woe such as befell Antiochus Epiphanes. aiwnios in itself only means age-long and papyri and inscriptions give it in the weakened sense of a Caesar's life (Milligan), but Paul means by age-long {the coming age} in contrast with { this age}, as {eternal} as the New Testament knows how to make it. See on Mt 25:46 for use of aiwnios both with zwen, life, and kolasin, punishment.
