Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 2:5

_ _ eighth — that is, Noah, and seven others. Contrasted with the densely peopled “world of the ungodly.”

_ _ preacher — not only “righteous” himself (compare 2 Peter 2:8), but also “a preacher of righteousness”: adduced by Peter against the licentiousness of the false teachers (2 Peter 2:2) who have no prospect before them but destruction, even as it overtook the ungodly world in Noah’s days.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 2:3-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Peter 2:5

And spared not the old, the antediluvian, world, but he preserved Noah the eighth person — that is, Noah and seven others, a preacher as well as practiser, of righteousness. Bringing a flood on the world of the ungodly — Whose numbers stood them in no stead.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Peter 2:5

And spared not the (e) old world, but saved Noah the eighth [person], a (f) preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

(e) Which was before the flood: not that God made a new world, but because the world seemed new.

(f) For one hundred and twenty years, he did not cease to warn the wicked both by word and deed, of the wrath of God hanging over their heads.
