    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12

    Y tambin todos los que quieren vivir píamente en Cristo Jess, padecern persecucin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 3:12

    Verse 12. All that will
    live godly] So opposite to the spirit and practice of the world is the whole of Christianity, that he who gives himself entirely up to God, making the Holy Scriptures the rule of his words and actions, will be less or more reviled and persecuted. "If religion gives no quarter to vice, the vicious will give no quarter to religion and its professors."

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Yea, and all that will
    live godly in Christ Jesus , etc.] All that live according to the will of God revealed in his word; and to the glory of God, as the end of all their actions; and which the grace of God in the Gospel, and in their own hearts, teaches them; and who have the principles of a godly life from Christ, and derive the fresh supplies of grace and life from him, to maintain it; in whom their life is hid, and who live by faith upon him; all such that live, and that will live so, are desirous of living after this manner; in whom God has wrought in them both to will and to do, and are concerned when it is otherwise with them: these shall suffer persecution ; it is the will of God, and the appointment of heaven; Christ has foretold it, that so it shall be; and he the head has suffered it himself, and it is necessary that his members should, that they may be conformed unto him; it is the way Christ himself went to glory, and through many tribulations his people must enter the kingdom; and this is the common lot and certain case of all the saints, in one shape or another; for though all do not suffer confiscation of goods, beating, scourging, imprisonment, or a violent death; yet all are more or less afflicted and distressed by wicked men, and are subject to their reproaches and revilings, which are a branch of persecution; and that for professing Christ, and living a godly life in him and under his influence: and since such suffer as Christians, and not as evildoers; and this is the common condition of the people of God, in this world, it should not be thought strange, but be cheerfully endured; to encourage to which is the apostle's view in this passage.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-13 - The more fully we know the
    doctrine of Christ, as taught by the apostles, the more closely we shall cleave to it. When we know the afflictions of believers only in part, they tempt us to decline the cause for which they suffer. A form of godliness, a profession of Christian faith without a godly life, often is allowed to pass, whil open profession of the truth as it is in Jesus, and resolute attentio to the duties of godliness, stir up the scorn and enmity of the world As good men, by the grace of God, grow better, so bad men, through the craft of Satan, and the power of their own corruptions, grow worse. The way of sin is down-hill; such go on from bad to worse, deceiving an being deceived. Those who deceive others, deceive themselves, as the will find at last, to their cost. The history of the outward church awfully shows that the apostle spake this as he was moved by the Holy Ghost.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12. Who will
    live (oi qelontev zhn). Whose will is to live, or who are bent on living.

    Godly (eusebwv). Only here and Tit. ii. 12. Comp. kat' eujsebeian according to godliness, 1 Tim. vi. 3; Tit. i. 1; and ejn pash eujsebeia in all godliness, 1 Tim. ii. 2. See also 1 Tim. iv. 7; vi. 11, and on godliness, 1 Tim. ii. 2.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:12 {That would live godly} (hoi qelontes zein eusebws). "Those who desire (will, determine) to live godly." Paul does not regard his experience as peculiar, but only part of the price of loyal service to Christ. {Shall suffer persecution} (diwcqesontai). Future passive of diwkw, "shall be persecuted" (shall be hunted as wild beasts).
