Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Timothy 6:14

_ _ keep this commandmentGreek, “the commandment,” that is, the Gospel rule of life (1 Timothy 1:5; John 13:34; 2 Peter 2:21; 2 Peter 3:2).

_ _ without spot, unrebukeable — agreeing with “thou.” Keep the commandment and so be without spot,” etc. “Pure” (1 Timothy 5:22; Ephesians 5:27; James 1:27; 2 Peter 3:14).

_ _ until the appearing of ... ChristHis coming in person (2 Thessalonians 2:8; Titus 2:13). Believers then used in their practice to set before themselves the day of Christ as near at hand; we, the hour of death [Bengel]. The fact has in all ages of the Church been certain, the time as uncertain to Paul, as it is to us; hence, 1 Timothy 6:15, he says, “in HIS times”: the Church’s true attitude is that of continual expectation of her Lord’s return (1 Corinthians 1:8; Philippians 1:6, Philippians 1:10).
