Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 3:17

_ _ Ye — warned by the case of those “unlearned and unstable” persons (2 Peter 3:16).

_ _ knowing ... before — the event.

_ _ led away with — the very term, as Peter remembers, used by Paul of Barnabas’ being “carried,” Greek, “led away with” Peter and the other Jews in their hypocrisy.

_ _ wicked — “lawless,” as in 2 Peter 2:7.

_ _ fall from — (grace, Galatians 5:4 : the true source of) “steadfastness” or stability in contrast with the “unstable” (2 Peter 3:16): “established” (2 Peter 1:12): all kindred Greek terms. Compare Jude 1:20, Jude 1:21.
