    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:22

    Y recibid a los unos en piedad, discerniendo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jude 1:22

    Verse 22. And of some have
    compassion, making a difference] The general meaning of this exhortation is supposed to be, "Ye are not to deal alike with all those who have been seduced by false teachers; ye are to make a difference between those who have been led away by weakness and imprudence, and those who, in the pride and arrogance of their hearts, and their unwillingness to submit to wholesome discipline, have separated themselves from the Church, and become its inveterate enemies." Instead of kai ouv men eleeite diakrinomenoi, and of some have compassion, making a difference, many MSS., versions, and fathers have kai ouv men elegcete diakrinomenouv, and some rebuke, after having judged them; or, rebuke those that differ; or, some that are wavering convince; or whatever else the reader pleases: for this and the following verse are all confusion, both in the MSS. and versions; and it is extremely difficult to know what was the original text. Our own is as likely as any.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. And of some have
    compassion , etc.] That is, of such who have gone astray, being drawn aside; who are simple and ignorant, and out of the way; who sin through infirmity, and the force of temptation; and who are tractable and open to conviction, and whose mistakes are in lesser matters of religion; as also such who are convicted and wounded in their consciences for their sins and mistakes: and to these compassion is to be shown, by praying with them, and for them, with ardency and affection; instructing them in meekness; giving friendly and brotherly reproofs to them; expressing on all occasions a tender concern for their good; doing them all the good that can be done, both for their souls and bodies: and good reason there is why compassion should be shown them, because God is a God of compassion; Christ is a merciful high priest; a contrary spirit is grieving to the Holy Ghost; saints should consider what they themselves were, and what they now are, and that compassion has been shown to them, and they may want it again. The Alexandrian copy, and some others, and the Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions, read, reprove. Making a difference ; between one and another; using some more tenderly, others more severely, as the nature and circumstances of their case appear to be. The Syriac version renders the whole, when they repent, have compassion on them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-23 -
    Sensual men separate from Christ, and his church, and join themselve to the devil, the world, and the flesh, by ungodly and sinfu practices. That is infinitely worse than to separate from any branch of the visible church on account of opinions, or modes and circumstance of outward government or worship. Sensual men have not the spirit of holiness, which whoever has not, does not belong to Christ. The grac of faith is most holy, as it works by love, purifies the heart, an overcomes the world, by which it is distinguished from a false and dea faith. Our prayers are most likely to prevail, when we pray in the Holy Ghost, under his guidance and influence, according to the rule of his word, with faith, fervency, and earnestness; this is praying in the Holy Ghost. And a believing expectation of eternal life will arm u against the snares of sin: lively faith in this blessed hope will hel us to mortify our lusts. We must watch over one another; faithfully yet prudently reprove each other, and set a good example to all abou us. This must be done with compassion, making a difference between the weak and the wilful. Some we must treat with tenderness. Others sav with fear; urging the terrors of the Lord. All endeavours must be joined with decided abhorrence of crimes, and care be taken to avoi whatever led to, or was connected with fellowship with them, in work of darkness, keeping far from what is, or appears to be evil.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    22. And of some have
    compassion, making a difference. This follows the reading, kai ouv men ejleeite (eleate) diakrinomenoi. The best texts, however, read diakrinomenouv, which would require, "On some have mercy who are in doubt. So Rev. Others, again, for ejleeite, have mercy, read ejlegcete, reprove, and render diakrinomenouv, who are contentious: "Some who are contentious rebuke." The Rev. rendering better suits what follows.
