    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:16

    D el Seor misericordia a la casa de Onesíforo; que muchas veces me refriger, y no se avergonz de mi cadena;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 1:16

    Verse 16. The
    Lord give mercy] Onesiphorus had acknowledged him, and continued to do so; he, and his house, or family, ministered to him in prison, and were not ashamed of their imprisoned pastor, nor of the cause for which he was in disgrace and suffering. As he showed mercy to the apostle, the apostle prays the Lord to show mercy to him.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. The
    Lord give mercy to the house of Onesiphorus , etc.] Who seems to have been one of Asia, and of Ephesus, and is an exception from the general apostasy, or from those that turned away from the apostle; and therefore he prays that the Lord would show mercy to his family; that he would give regenerating grace and mercy to such of them as were without it, or pardoning grace and mercy, or the great mercy of eternal life and salvation by Christ; and this doubtless was a prayer in faith, upon the promises of God, and upon instances and examples, in which God has remarkably shown mercy to the families of good men, who have faithfully served him, and abode in his interest in times of trouble; thus the house of Obed Edom was blessed for the sake of the ark, that was taken care of by them; the reasons of this prayer and good wishes follow: for he oft refreshed me ; both with his Christian visits, and spiritual conversation, which to the apostle, in the heat of his affliction and persecution, were like a fan in hot weather, cooling and reviving, as the word signifies; and also by supplying him with the necessaries of life, as food and raiment, or money to purchase them with. He answered to his name, which signifies, one that brings profit: he is said to be one of the seventy disciples; (see Gill on Luke 10:1) and afterwards to be bishop of Corone: and was not ashamed of my chain ; the Syriac version adds, with which I am bound; in which he lay, or by which he was held, and led by a soldier; (see Acts 28:16,20). Onesiphorus was not ashamed of the apostle, though he was bound with a chain; nor was he ashamed of the cause for which he suffered: and the apostle proposes him to Timothy, as an example worthy of imitation, in those times of defection. (see 2 Timothy 1:8).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-18 - The
    apostle mentions the constancy of Onesiphorus; he oft refreshed his with his letters, and counsels, and comforts, and was not ashamed of him. A good man will seek to do good. The day of death and judgment in an awful day. And if we would have mercy then, we must seek for it no of the Lord. The best we can ask, for ourselves or our friends, is that the Lord will grant that we and they may find mercy of the Lord when called to pass out of time into eternity, and to appear before the judgment seat of Christ __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    16. Onesiphorus. Mentioned again, chapter iv. 19.

    Refreshed (aneyuzen). N.T.o . Several times in LXX; often in Class. Anayuxiv refreshing, Acts iii. 19; and katayucein to cool, Luke xvi. 24. Originally to cool; to revive by fresh air.

    Chain (alusin). Once in Paul, Eph. vi. 20. Several times in Mark, Luke, and Acts. It may mean handcuffs or manacles (see Lightfoot, Philippians, ed. of 1896, page 8), but is not limited to that sense either in classical or later Greek. See Hdt. ix. 74; Eurip. Orest. 984. Mark. v. 4 is not decisive.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:16 {Grant mercy} (dwie eleos). The phrase nowhere else in the N.T. Second aorist active optative of didwmi, the usual form being doie. this is the usual construction in a wish about the future. {Unto the house of Onesiphorus} (twi onesiforou oikwi). The same phrase in #4:19. Apparently Onesiphorus is now dead as is implied by the wish in #1:18. {For he oft refreshed me} (hoti pollakis me aneyuxen). First aorist active indicative of anayucw, old verb, to cool again, in LXX and _Koin_ often, here only in N.T., but anayuxis in #Ac 3:20. In the first imprisonment or the second. If he lost his life for coming to see Paul, it was probably recently during this imprisonment. {Was not ashamed of my chain} (halusin mou ouk epaiscunqe). Passive deponent again (first aorist indicative) with accusative as in #1:8. For halusin (chain) see #Eph 6:20. Note absence of augment in epaiscunqe.
