    2Ti 1:8,12,16 Ac 9:16

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:9

    en el que sufro trabajo, hasta las prisiones a modo de malhechor; mas la palabra de Dios no est presa.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 2:9

    Verse 9. Wherein I
    suffer trouble, as an evil doer] This verse contains one of the proofs that this epistle was written while St. Paul was a prisoner the second time at Rome. See the preface, where this is particularly considered.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. Wherein I
    suffer trouble as an evildoer , etc.] As a malefactor, as if guilty of some capital crime; an enemy to the law of Moses, a pestilent fellow, a mover of sedition everywhere, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes, ( Acts 24:5). The Ethiopic version renders it, as a thief.

    The trouble he suffered were reproaches, persecutions, whipping, beating, stoning, imprisonment: for he adds, even unto bonds ; for he was now a prisoner, and in chains; nor was it the first time, he was in prisons frequent; and all this for the sake of the Gospel, which he preached, concerning the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Christ: but the word of God is not bound ; for the apostle, while a prisoner at Rome, had the liberty of dwelling by himself, in his own hired house, though held in chains, and guarded by a soldier, and of receiving his friends, and of preaching the Gospel to as many as would come to hear him, ( Acts 28:16,17,23,30,31) as well as of sending letters to the churches; for several of his epistles were written by him when a prisoner, as those to the Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians; and this to Timothy, and also that to Philemon: so that the Gospel was not restrained, or the apostle restrained from publishing it, both by word of mouth, and by writing; which was a great support to him under his troubles. Moreover, the Gospel was the more spread through the bonds of the apostle, and met with great success; it became known in Caesar's palace, and was the means of the conversion of some of his household; and many of the brethren, through his bonds, became bolder to preach the Gospel of Christ; so that it had a free course, and was glorified: and sometimes so it is, that persecution is a means of the greater spread of the Gospel; which was an effect that followed upon the persecution raised against the church at Jerusalem, upon the death of Stephen, ( Acts 8:1-4). And indeed, when God opens an effectual door, none can shut it, though there be many adversaries; and when he gives the word a commission, there is no stopping it; when it comes in power, it bears down all before it; it cannot be fettered and bound by men, though men may be fettered and bound for the sake of it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-13 - Let suffering saints remember, and look to Jesus, the Author an Finisher of their faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despised the shame, and is now set down at the righ hand of the throne of God. We must not think it strange if the best me meet with the worst treatment; but this is cheering, that the word of God is not bound. Here we see the real and true cause of the apostle' suffering trouble in, or for, the sake of the gospel. If we are dead to this world, its pleasures, profits, and honours, we shall be for eve with Christ in a better world. He is faithful to his threatenings, an faithful to his promises. This truth makes sure the unbeliever' condemnation, and the believer's salvation.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    9. Wherein I
    suffer trouble (en w kakopaqw). Wherein refers to the gospel. Kakopaqein only here, chapter iv. 5, and James. v. 13. LXX, John. iv. 10.

    As an evildoer (wv kakourgov). Only here and in Luke. Better, malefactor. The meaning is technical. Comp. Luke xxiii. 32, 33, 39. Unto bonds (mecri desmwn). Comp. Philippians. ii. 8, mecri qanatou unto death: Hebrews. xii. 4, mecriv aimatov unto blood. Const. with I suffer trouble But the word of God is not bound (alla o logov tou qeou ou dedetai). Nevertheless, although I am in bonds, the gospel which I preach will prevail in spite of all human efforts to hinder it. Word of God often in Paul. In Pastorals, 1 Tim. iv. 5; Tit. ii. 5. Bound, in Paul metaphorically, as here, Rom. vii. 2; 1 Cor. vii. 27, 39.
