    Mt 23:14 Tit 1:11 Jude 1:4

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:6

    Porque de stos son los que se entran por las casas, y llevan cautivas las mujercillas cargadas de pecados, llevadas de diversas concupiscencias;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Timothy 3:6

    Verse 6. For of this sort are they] He here refers to false
    teachers and their insinuating manners, practising upon weak women, who, seeing in them such a semblance of piety, entertain them with great eagerness, and at last become partakers with them in their impurities. Among the Jews there are remarkable cases of this kind on record, and not a few of them among the full fed monks of the Romish Church. But in what sect or party have not such teachers been occasionally found? yet neither Judaism, Protestantism, nor Roman Catholicism makes any provision for such men.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. For of this sort are they which
    creep into houses , etc.] Privily and unawares, in a clandestine manner, and insinuate themselves into families, by fawning and flattering, and under specious pretences to knowledge and virtue. The Syriac version uses a word, from whence comes adlwj , Chulda, which signifies a weasel; suggesting, that their entrance into houses was like to the way of that creature, which is sometimes covered, and sometimes open: there was also a gate of the temple, which was called Huldah; whether there is any allusion in the word to that, may be inquired f10 . And lead captive silly women ; the coming of antichrist is after the working of Satan; as Satan attacked the woman, and not the man, and beguiled Eve and not Adam, so these his instruments and emissaries, work themselves into the affections of the weaker vessel, and into the weaker sort of women, as the diminutive word here used signifies; and gain upon them, instil their principles into them, attach them to their interests, captivate them to them, and lead them as they please: laden with sins ; covered with them, full of them, and so ready to receive any set of principles that would encourage them to continue in them; or else were pressed down with a sense of them, their consciences being awakened, and they under some concern on account of them, and so fit persons for such deceivers to gain upon, by pretending to great sanctity and religion, and by providing them with pardons and indulgences, and putting them upon penance, etc. though the former sense seems most agreeable, and is confirmed by what follows, led away with divers lusts . The Alexandrian copy adds, and pleasures; that is, sinful ones; though this may be understood, not of unclean lusts, but of the itch and desire after new teachers, and new doctrines, and practices, which prevail in weak women, and by which they are governed and led away.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    6. Of this sort (ek toutwn). Lit. of these. The formula often in
    Paul. Which creep (oi endunontev). N.T.o . Thrust themselves into. Comp. Jude 4, pareiseduhsan crept in privily (see note); 2 Pet. ii. 1 (note), pareisaxousin shall privily bring in; and Gal. ii. 4, pareisaktouv brought in by stealth.

    Lead captive (aicmalwtizontev). Only here in Pastorals. See on captives, Luke iv. 18; and 2 Cor. x. 5.

    Silly women (gunaikaria). N.T.o . o LXX. Silly is expressed by the contemptuous diminutive. Comp. Vulg. mulierculas.

    Laden (seswreumena). Only here and Rom. xii. 20, citation. In LXX, see Judith xv. 11, of loading a wagon with the property of Holofernes. It implies heaped up; heavily laden.

    Led away (agomena). Away is superfluous. It is only an inference. The meaning is under the direction of. Comp. Rom. viii. 14; Gal. v. 18. Divers (poikilaiv). In Pastorals only here and Tit. iii. 3. Lit. variegated, of different tints. See on manifold wisdom, Ephesians. iii. 10. 141


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:6 {That creep} (hoi endunontes). Old and common verb (also enduw) either to put on (#1Th 5:8) or to enter (to slip in by insinuation, as here). See same idea in #Jude 1:4 (pareiseduesan), #2Pe 2:1 (pareisaxousin), #Ga 2:4 (pareiselqon and pareisaktous). These stealthy "creepers" are pictured also in #Tit 1:11. {Take captive} (aicmalwtizontes). "Taking captive." Present active participle of aicmalwtizw, for which see #2Co 10:5; Ro 7:23. {Silly women} (gunaikaria). Literally, "little women" (diminutive of gune), found in Diocles (comedian of 5 century B.C.) and in Epictetus. The word here is neuter (grammatical gender) plural. Used contemptuously here (only N.T. example). Ramsay suggests "society ladies." It is amazing how gullible some women are with religious charlatans who pose as exponents of "new thought." {Laden with sins} (seswreumena hamartiais). Perfect passive participle of swreuw, old word from Aristotle down (from swros, a heap) to heap up. In N.T. only here and #Ro 12:20. Associative instrumental case hamartiais. {Divers} (poikilais). Many colored. See #Tit 3:3. One has only to recall Schweinfurth, the false Messiah of forty odd years ago with his "heavenly harem" in Illinois and the recent infamous "House of David" in Michigan to understand how these Gnostic cults led women into lasciviousness under the guise of religion or of liberty. The priestesses of Aphrodite and of Isis were illustrations ready to hand. agomena (present passive participle) means "continually led astray or from time to time."
