    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:14

    ¶ Esto aconseja, protestando delante del Seor. No tengas contienda en palabras, que para nada aprovecha, antes trastorna a los oyentes.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 2:14

    Verse 14. That they
    strive not about words] WORDS, not things, have been a most fruitful source of contention in the Christian world; and among religious people, the principal cause of animosity has arisen from the different manner of apprehending the same term, while, in essence, both meant the same thing. All preachers and divines should be very careful, both in speaking and writing, to explain the terms they use, and never employ them in any sense but that in which they have explained them.

    The subverting of the hearers.] This is the general tendency of all polemical divinity and controversial preaching, when angry passions are called in to support the doctrines of the Gospel.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. Of these things put them in remembrance , etc.] Meaning either his hearers, or those to whom he was to commit the things he had heard of the apostle, and who must expect to suffer afflictions, and endure hardships, for the sake of Christ, and his Gospel; wherefore to remind them of the above sayings might be of use and comfort to them. This clause is wanting in the Arabic version. Charging them before the Lord ; the omniscient God, as in his sight, as they will answer it to him another day; (see 1 Timothy 5:21 6:13), that they strive not about words ; it became them to strive and contend for the form of sound words, for the wholesome words or doctrines of our Lord Jesus, but not about mere words, and especially such as were to no profit ; to no advantage to truth, nor to themselves nor others; were not to edification, to spiritual edification, to godly edifying, which is in faith: but to the subverting of the hearers ; the confounding of their minds, misleading their judgments, and overthrowing their faith; and therefore were not only unprofitable, but hurtful and pernicious, and by all means to be avoided.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-21 - Those disposed to
    strive, commonly strive about matters of smal moment. But strifes of words destroy the things of God. The apostl mentions some who erred. They did not deny the resurrection, but the corrupted that true doctrine. Yet nothing can be so foolish of erroneous, but it will overturn the temporary faith of some professors This foundation has two writings on it. One speaks our comfort. Non can overthrow the faith of any whom God hath chosen. The other speak our duty. Those who would have the comfort of the privilege, must make conscience of the duty Christ gave himself for us, that he might redee us from all iniquity, Tit 2:14. The church of Christ is like dwelling: some furniture is of great value; some of smaller value, an put to meaner uses. Some professors of religion are like vessels of wood and earth. When the vessels of dishonour are cast out to be destroyed, the others will be filled with all the fulness of God. We must see to it that we are holy vessels. Every one in the church who God approves, will be devoted to his Master's service, and thus fitte for his use.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. Put them in remembrance (upomimnhske). o P. See on uJpomnhsin reminding, chapter.i. 5.

    Charging (diamarturomenov). In Paul only 1 Thess. iv. 6. Very frequent in Acts. See on Acts ii. 40; 20. 23. The sense is rather conjuring them by their loyalty to God. Paul uses the simple marturesqai in a similar sense. See Gal. v. 3; 1 Thess. ii. 12 (note); Ephesians iv. 17.

    Before God (enwpion tou qeou). See on 1 Tim. v. 4.

    Strive about words (logomacein). N.T.o . o LXX, o Class. Comp. logomaciav disputes of words, 1 Timothy. vi. 4, and see 1 Corinthians iv. 20.

    To no profit (ejp' oujden crhsimon). Lit. to nothing useful. Ep' oujden, o P. He uses eijv kenon to no purpose. See 2 Cor. vi. 1; Gal. ii. 2; Philip. ii. 16; 1 Thess. iii. 5. Crhsimov useful, N.T.o . To the subverting (epi katastrofh). Epi does not mean here to or for (purpose or object). but indicates the ground on which the unprofitableness of the wordy strife rests. Unprofitable because it works subversion of the hearers. Katastrofh subversion, transliterated into catastrophe, only here and 2 Pet. ii. 6. In LXX of the destruction or overthrow of men or cities. Katastrefein to overturn, Matt. xxi. 12; Mark. xi. 15; Acts xv. 16, cit. Paul uses kaqairesiv pulling down, 2 Corinthians x. 4, 8; xiii. 10


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:14 {That they strive not about words} (me logomacein). Word apparently coined by Paul from logomacia (#1Ti 6:4 which see), a back formation in that case. A mere war of words displeases Paul. (#Tit 3:9). {Useful} (cresimon). Late and rare word from craomai, here only in N.T. {To the subverting} (epi katastrofei). Old word (from katastrefw, to turn down or over), here only in N.T. (except #2Pe 2:6 in some MSS., not in Westcott and Hort)." Because of the overthrow" (result epi, not aim), useless for this reason. Such war of words merely upsets the hearers.
