    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:16

    Mas evita profanas y vanas palabrerías; porque muy adelante irn en la impiedad.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 2:16

    Verse 16.
    Shun profane and vain babblings] This is the character he gives of the preaching of the false teachers. Whatever was not agreeable to the doctrine of truth was, in the sight of God, empty and profane babbling; engendering nothing but ungodliness, and daily increasing in that.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. But
    shun profane and vain babblings , etc.] The ministry of false teachers is mere babbling; a voice, and nothing else, as the man said of his nightingale; a sound of words, but no solid matter in them; great swelling words of vanity, like large bubbles of water, look big, and make a great noise, but have nothing in them; contain nothing but vain, empty, idle, and trifling stuff; what is unprofitable and unedifying, yea, what is profane, contrary to the nature and perfections of God, and not agreeable to the doctrine which is according to godliness; and being palmed upon the Holy Scriptures, is a profanation of them. And all such wicked and empty prate, and babbling, is to be shunned, avoided, and discouraged, refused, and rejected; and, as much as can be, a stop should be put to it, both by ministers and hearers of the word. For they will increase unto more ungodliness meaning either that such babblings, if used and encouraged, will grow more and more profane and wicked; or the persons that use them, the unruly and vain talkers, will grow more daring, bold; and impudent, will wax worse and worse, and from one error will proceed to another, for such seldom stop; and having abused one passage of Scripture, will go on to attack another, and will not cease, till they have wrested the whole Scripture to their own destruction, and that of others.

    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.

    Shun (periistaso). P o . In Pastorals, here and Tit. iii. 9. Originally, to place round; to stand round. In the middle voice, to turn one's self about, as for the purpose of avoiding something: hence, avoid, shun. Often in Class., but in this sense only in later Greek.

    Profane and vain babblings (bebhlouv kenofwniav). For profane, see on 1 Tim. i. 9. Vain is superfluous, being implied in babblings. For babblings, see on 1 Tim. vi. 20. Babble is a word of early origin, an imitative word, formed on the efforts of a young child to speak, and having its counterparts in many languages. It appears very early in English, as in Piers Plowman:

    "And so I bablede on my bedes." Vis. 2487.

    Bacon: "Who will open himself to a blab or a babbler? " Ess. vi

    Shakespeare: "Leave thy vain bibble babble." Twelfth X. iv. 2.

    They will increase (prokoyousin). See on Rom. xiii. 12, and Gal. i. 14.

    Ungodiness (asebeiav). The opposite of eujsebeia godliness, for which see on 1 Tim. ii. 2. In Pastorals, Tit. ii. 12. In Paul, Rom. i. 18; xi. 26, cit.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:16 {Shun} (periistaso). See #Tit 3:9. {Babblings} (kenofwnias). See #1Ti 6:20. {Will proceed} (prokoyousin). Future active of prokoptw, "will cut forward." See #Ga 1:14; Ro 13:12. {Further in ungodliness} (epi pleion asebeias). "To more of ungodliness." See #Ro 1:18; 1Ti 2:2.
