Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Thessalonians 2:12

_ _ they all ... damned — rather as Greek, “that all,” etc. He here states the general proposition which applies specially to Antichrist’s adherents. Not all in the Church of Rome, or other anti-Christian systems, shall be damned, but only “all who believed not the truth,” when offered to them, “but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:32; Romans 2:8). Love of unrighteousness being the great obstacle to believing the truth.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

That they all may be condemned — That is, the consequence of which will be, that they all will be condemned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness — That is, who believed not the truth, because they loved sin.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Thessalonians 2:12

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but (o) had pleasure in unrighteousness.

(o) They liked lies so much that they had pleasure in them, which is the greatest madness that may exist.
