Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 1:13

_ _ Hold fast the form — rather as Greek,Have (that is, keep) a pattern of sound (Greek, ‘healthy’) words which thou hast heard from me, in faith and love.” “Keep” suits the reference to a deposit in the context. The secondary position of the verb in the Greek forbids our taking it so strongly as English Version, “Hold fast.” The Greek for “form” is translated “pattern” in 1 Timothy 1:16, the only other passage where it occurs. Have such a pattern drawn from my sound words, in opposition to the unsound doctrines so current at Ephesus, vividly impressed (Wahl translates it “delineation”; the verb implies “to make a lively and lasting impress”) on thy mind.

_ _ in faith and love — the element IN which my sound words had place, and in which thou art to have the vivid impression of them as thy inwardly delineated pattern, molding conformably thy outward profession. So nearly Bengel explains, 1 Timothy 3:9.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 1:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 1:13

The pattern of sound words — The model of pure, wholesome doctrine.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(8) He shows in what he ought to be most constant, that is, both in the doctrine itself, the essential parts of which are faith and charity, and next in the manner of teaching it, a living pattern and shape of which Timothy knew in the apostle.
