Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 2:9

_ _ knoweth how — He is at no loss for means, even when men see no escape.

_ _ out of — not actually from.

_ _ temptations — trials.

_ _ to be punishedGreek, “being punished”: as the fallen angels (2 Peter 2:4), actually under sentence, and awaiting its final execution. Sin is already its own penalty; hell will be its full development.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 2:7-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
