    Na 3:15 Jas 5:3

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:17

    Y la palabra de ellos carcomer como gangrena; de los cuales son Himeneo y Fileto;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 2:17

    Verse 17. Their word will eat as doth a canker] wv gaggraina? As a
    gangrene; i.e. as a mortification in the flesh, where the circulation is entirely stopped, and putrefaction takes place, which continues to corrupt all the circumjacent flesh, spreading more and more till death takes place, unless stopped by a timely and judicious application of medicine. Such is the influence of false doctrine; it fixes its mortal seed in the soul, which continues to corrupt and assimilate every thing to itself, till, if not prevented by a timely application of the word of life, under the direction of the heavenly Physician, it terminates in the bitter pains of an eternal death. To such a gangrene the apostle compares the corrupt doctrines of Hymeneus and Philetus.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And their word will eat as doth a cancer , etc.] Or gangrene, which gnaws and
    feeds upon the flesh, inflames and mortifies as it goes, and spreads swiftly, and endangers the whole body; and is therefore to be speedily taken notice of, and stopped. It is better rendered gangrene, as in the marginal reading, than cancer. The word gangrene is Greek f7 , and is derived by some authors from the Paphlagonian gangra, a goat; it being the character of a goat to browse the grass all around without shifting. It is more correct, perhaps, to derive it from the Greek word graw , grainw , manduco, consumo, I eat, I consume. The gangrene is a disease in the flesh of the part which it corrupts, consumes, and turns black, spreading and seizing itself of the adjoining parts, and is rarely cured without amputation. By the microscope, a gangrene has been discovered to contain an infinite number of little worms engendered in the morbid flesh; and which continually producing new broods, they swarm, and overrun the adjacent parts: if the gangrene proceed to an utter sphacelation (or mortification), and be seated in any of the limbs, or extreme parts, recourse must be had to the operation of amputation And so the errors and heresies of false teachers worm and spread, and feed upon the souls of men, and eat up the vitals of religion, or what seemed to be such, and even destroy the very form of godliness; and bring destruction and death, wherever they come; and when they get into Christian churches, threaten the ruin of them; and therefore are to be opposed in time, and those infected with them to be cut off. Of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus ; these were some of the principal among the false teachers, the chief authors and spreaders of error and heresy: the former of these is mentioned before in ( 1 Timothy 1:20) along with Alexander, as guilty of blasphemy, and as delivered up to Satan for it. Philetus is a Greek name as well as the other, though it is sometimes found in Roman inscriptions f8 : it is very likely that these were both in Asia, and probably in Ephesus, or near to it, since the apostle mentions them by name to Timothy, that he might beware of them.

    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.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:17 {Will eat} (nomen hexei). "Will have (future active of ecw) pasturage or increase" (nome, old word from nemw, to pasture, in N.T. only here and #Joh 10:9). {As doth gangrene} (hws gaggraina).
