    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:25

    que con mansedumbre ensea a los que se resisten, si por ventura Dios les d que se arrepientan y conozcan la verdad,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 2:25

    Verse 25. Those that oppose] antidiatiqemenouv. This seems to refer to those who opposed the
    apostle's authority; and hence the propriety of the allusion to the rebellion of Korah and his company. See observations at the end of the chapter.

    If God peradventure] He was to use every means which he had reason to believe God might bless; and the apostle intimates that, bad as they were, they were not out of the reach of God's mercy.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 25. In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves , etc.] To the truth; resist it and deny it; or contradict some other tenets and principles of theirs, or the Scriptures, which they themselves allowed to be the word of God, and the rule of faith and practice, and so are selfconvinced and self-condemned. These are to be instructed, being ignorant, and in a tender and gentle manner, though very perverse and obstinate. If God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth : repentance here designs a repentance of errors in principle, a change of mind upon conviction, and such as issues in a free and ingenuous confession, and acknowledgment of the truth before opposed; and such a repentance is the gift of God: it is he that opens the eyes of the understanding, and works conviction in the mind, and leads into all truth, as it is in Jesus; and induces men to repent of their errors, confess their mistakes, and own the truth; even as repentance of evil practices is not owing to the power of men, nor to the bare influence of means, but to the efficacious grace of God, it being a grant from him. And though this is not certain, that God will give repentance to such contradictors and blasphemers of his Gospel; yet as it is his will, that all his chosen ones should come to repentance, and that some of all sorts should be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth; and seeing these things have been brought about under and by the ministry of the word, it is an encouragement to the ministers of the Gospel to continue their instructions in the manner here directed.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 22-26 - The more we
    follow that which is good, the faster and the further we shall flee from that which is evil. The keeping up the communion of saints, will take us from fellowship with unfruitful works of darkness See how often the apostle cautions against disputes in religion; whic surely shows that religion consists more in believing and practisin what God requires, than in subtle disputes. Those are unapt to teach who are apt to strive, and are fierce and froward. Teaching, no persecution, is the Scripture method of dealing with those in error The same God who gives the discovery of the truth, by his grace bring us to acknowledge it, otherwise our hearts would continue to rebe against it. There is no "peradventure," in respect of God's pardonin those who do repent; but we cannot tell that he will give repentance to those who oppose his will. Sinners are taken in a snare, and in the worst snare, because it is the devil's; they are slaves to him. And i any long for deliverance, let them remember they never can escape except by repentance, which is the gift of God; and we must ask it of him by earnest, persevering prayer __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    25. In
    meekness (en prauthti). A Pauline word, only here in Pastorals, But comp. praupaqia, 1 Tim. vi. 11 (note). Const. With instruction. Instructing (paideuonta). See on 1 Tim. i. 20. Better, correcting!.

    Those that oppose themselves (touv antidiatiqemenouv). N.T.o LXX. Class. only late Gleek. Themselves is wrong. The meaning is, those who oppose the servant of the Lord; Who carry on the ajntiqeseiv oppositions (1 Tim. vi. 20); =gainsayers (ajntilegontev Tit. i. 9). Paul's word is ajntikeisqai to oppose: see 1 Corinthains xvi. 9; Gal. v. 17; Philip. i. 28; 2 Thessalonians. ii. 4.

    Repentance (metanoian). Only here in Pastorals. See on repent) Matthew. iii. 2.

    To the acknowledging of the truth (eiv epignwsin alhqeiav). More correctly, the knowledge. The formula Past o . See 1 Tim. ii. 4 (note); 2 Timothy iii. 7. For eijv unto after metanoia repentance, see Mark. i. 4; Luke iii. 3; xxiv. 47; Acts xi. 18; xx. 21; 2 Cor. vii. 10.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:25 {Correcting} (paideuonta). See #Tit 2:12. "Schooling" (Parry). {Oppose themselves} (antidiatiqemenous). Present middle (direct) participle of antidiatiqemi, late double compound (Diodorus, Philo) to place oneself in opposition, here only in N.T. {If peradventure God may give} (me pote dwie ho qeos). Here Westcott and Hort read the late form of the second aorist active optative of didwmi for the usual doie as they do in #1:18. But there it is a wish for the future and so regular, while here the optative with me pote in a sort of indirect question is used with a primary tense dei (present) and parallel with an undoubted subjunctive ananeywsin, while in #Lu 3:15 me pote eie is with a secondary tense. Examples of such an optative do occur in the papyri (Robertson, _Grammar_, p. 989) so that we cannot go as far as Moulton does and say that we "must" read the subjunctive dwei here (_Prolegomena_, pp. 55, 193). {Repentance} (metanoian). "Change of mind" (#2Co 7:10; Ro 2:4). {Unto the knowledge of the truth} (eis epignwsin aleqeias). Paul's word "full knowledge" (#Co 1:9).
