Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 2:17

_ _ will eat — literally, “will have pasture.” The consuming progress of mortification is the image. They pretend to give rich spiritual pasture to their disciples: the only pasture is that of a spiritual cancer feeding on their vitals.

_ _ canker — a “cancer” or “gangrene.”

_ _ Hymenaeus — (See on 1 Timothy 1:20). After his excommunication he seems to have been readmitted into the Church and again to have troubled it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 2:14-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 2:17

And their word — If they go on, will be mischievous as well as vain, and will eat as a gangrene.
