Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 2:13

_ _ receive — “shall carry off as their due.”

_ _ reward of — that is, for their “unrighteousness” [Alford]. Perhaps it is implied, unrighteousness shall be its own reward or punishment. “Wages of unrighteousness” (2 Peter 2:15) has a different sense, namely, the earthly gain to be gotten by “unrighteousness.”

_ _ in the daytime — Translate as Greek, “counting the luxury which is in the daytime (not restricted to night, as ordinary reveling. Or as Vulgate and Calvin, “the luxury which is but for a day”: so Hebrews 11:25, “the pleasures of sin for a season”; and Hebrews 12:16, Esau) to be pleasure,” that is, to be their chief good and highest enjoyment.

_ _ Spotsin themselves.

_ _ blemishes — disgraces: bringing blame (so the Greek) on the Church and on Christianity itself.

_ _ sporting themselvesGreek, “luxuriating.”

_ _ withGreek, “in.”

_ _ deceivings — or else passively, “deceits”: luxuries gotten by deceit. Compare Matthew 13:22, “Deceitfulness of riches”; Ephesians 4:22, “Deceitful lusts.” While deceiving others, they are deceived themselves. Compare with English Version, Philippians 3:19, “Whose glory is in their shame.” “Their own” stands in opposition to “you”: “While partaking of the love-feast (compare Jude 1:12) with you,” they are at the same time “luxuriating in their own deceivings,” or “deceits” (to which latter clause answers Jude 1:12, end: Peter presents the positive side, “they luxuriate in their own deceivings”; Jude, the negative, “feeding themselves without fear”). But several of the oldest manuscripts, Vulgate, Syriac, and Sahidic Versions read (as Jude), “In their own love-feasts”: “their own” will then imply that they pervert the love-feasts so as to make them subserve their own self-indulgent purposes.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Peter 2:13

They count it pleasure to riot in the day time — They glory in doing it in the face of the sun. They are spots in themselves, blemishes to any church. Sporting themselves with their own deceivings — Making a jest of those whom they deceive and even jesting while they are deceiving their own souls.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Peter 2:13

And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, [as] they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots [they are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings (n) while they feast with you;

(n) When by being among the Christians in the holy banquets which the Church keeps, they would seem by that to be true members of the Church, yet they are indeed but blots on the Church.
