    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:4

    traidores, arrebatados, infatuados, amadores de los deleites ms que de Dios;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 3:4

    Verse 4.
    Traitors] prodotai? From pro, before, and didwmi, to deliver up. Those who deliver up to an enemy the person who has put his life in their hands; such as the Scots of 1648, who delivered up into the hands of his enemies their unfortunate countryman and king, Charles the First; a stain which no lapse of ages can wipe out.

    Heady] propeteiv? From pro, forwards, and piptw, to fall; headstrong, precipitate, rash, inconsiderate.

    High-minded] tetufwmenoi? From tofov, smoke; the frivolously aspiring; those who are full of themselves, and empty of all good.

    Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God] This is nervously and beautifully expressed in the Greek, filhdonoi mallon h filoqeoi lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; i.e. pleasure, sensual gratification, is their god; and this they love and serve; God they do not.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Traitors , etc.] To their princes and sovereigns, whose deaths they have contrived and compassed, and whom they have assassinated and murdered; and have been betrayers of the secrets of persons, which they have come at by auricular confession to them; and of their best and nearest friends, to preserve and secure themselves. Heady ; rash, daring, bold, and impudent, fit to say and do any thing, though ever so vile and wicked. High, minded ; puffed and swelled up with a vain conceit of themselves, and speaking great swelling words of vanity; lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God ; lovers of sinful pleasures, or the pleasures of sin, which are but for a season, and not God; serving divers lusts and pleasures, and not God; making a god of their belly; sensual idolaters, delighting themselves in their carnal lusts, and not in the service of God.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - Even in
    gospel times there would be perilous times; on account of persecution from without, still more on account of corruptions within Men love to gratify their own lusts, more than to please God and d their duty. When every man is eager for what he can get, and anxious to keep what he has, this makes men dangerous to one another. When men d not fear God, they will not regard man. When children are disobedien to their parents, that makes the times perilous. Men are unholy an without the fear of God, because unthankful for the mercies of God. We abuse God's gifts, if we make them the food and fuel of our lusts Times are perilous also, when parents are without natural affection to children. And when men have no rule over their own spirits, but despis that which is good and to be honoured. God is to be loved above all but a carnal mind, full of enmity against him, prefers any thing befor him, especially carnal pleasure. A form of godliness is very differen from the power; from such as are found to be hypocrites, rea Christians must withdraw. Such persons have been found within the outward church, in every place, and at all times. There ever have bee artful men, who, by pretences and flatteries, creep into the favour an confidence of those who are too easy of belief, ignorant, and fanciful All must be ever learning to know the Lord; but these follow every ne notion, yet never seek the truth as it is in Jesus. Like the Egyptia magicians, these were men of corrupt minds, prejudiced against the truth, and found to be quite without faith. Yet though the spirit of error may be let loose for a time, Satan can deceive the nations an the churches no further, and no longer, than God will permit.
