Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Timothy 2:7

_ _ Whereunto — For the giving of which testimony.

_ _ I am ordained — literally, “I was set”: the same Greek, as “putting me,” etc. (1 Timothy 1:12).

_ _ preacher — literally, “herald” (1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Corinthians 9:27; 1 Corinthians 15:11; 2 Timothy 1:11; Titus 1:3). He recurs to himself, as in 1 Timothy 1:16, in himself a living pattern or announcement of the Gospel, so here “a herald and teacher of (it to) the Gentiles” (Galatians 2:9; Ephesians 3:1-12; Colossians 1:23). The universality of his commission is an appropriate assertion here, where he is arguing to prove that prayers are to be made “for all men” (1 Timothy 2:1).

_ _ I speak the truth ... and lie not — a strong asseveration of his universal commission, characteristic of the ardor of the apostle, exposed to frequent conflict (Romans 11:1; 2 Corinthians 11:13).

_ _ in faith and verity — rather, “in the faith and the truth.” The sphere in which his ministry was appointed to be exercised was the faith and the truth (1 Timothy 2:4): the Gospel truth, the subject matter of the faith [Wiesinger].
