Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 1:17

_ _ received ... honour — in the voice that spake to Him.

_ _ glory — in the light which shone around Him.

_ _ cameGreek, “was borne”: the same phrase occurs only in 1 Peter 1:13; one of several instances showing that the argument against the authenticity of this Second Epistle, from its dissimilarity of style as compared with First Peter, is not well founded.

_ _ such a voice — as he proceeds to describe.

_ _ from the excellent glory — rather as Greek, “by (that is, uttered by) the magnificent glory (that is, by God: as His glorious manifested presence is often called by the Hebrews “the Glory,” compare “His Excellency,” Deuteronomy 33:26; Psalms 21:5).”

_ _ in whomGreek,in regard to whom” (accusative case); but Matthew 17:5, “in whom” (dative case) centers and rests My good pleasure. Peter also omits, as not required by his purpose, “hear Him,” showing his independence in his inspired testimony.

_ _ I amGreek aorist, past time, “My good pleasure rested from eternity.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 1:16-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Peter 1:17

For he received divine honour and inexpressible glory — Shining from heaven above the brightness of the sun. When there came such a voice from the excellent glory — That is, from God the Father. Matthew 17:5.
