Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 3:12

_ _ Yea, and — an additional consideration for Timothy: if he wishes to live godly in Christ, he must make up his mind to encounter persecution.

_ _ that will, etc. — Greek, “all whose will is to live,” etc. So far should persecution be from being a stumbling-block to Timothy, he should consider it a mark of the pious. So the same Greek is used of the same thing, Luke 14:28, Luke 14:33, “intending (Greek,wishing’) to build a tower ... counteth the cost.”

_ _ live godly in Christ — (Galatians 2:20; Philippians 1:21). There is no godliness (Greek, “piously”) or piety out of Christ. The world easily puts up with the mask of a religion which depends on itself, but the piety which derives its vigor directly from Christ is as odious to modern Christians as it was to the ancient Jews [Bengel].

_ _ shall suffer persecution — and will not decline it (Galatians 5:11). Bishop Pearson proves the divine origination of Christianity from its success being inexplicable on the supposition of its being of human origin. The nature of its doctrine was no way likely to command success: (1) it condemns all other religions, some established for ages; (2) it enjoins precepts ungrateful to flesh and blood, the mortifying of the flesh, the love of enemies, and the bearing of the cross; (3) it enforces these seemingly unreasonable precepts by promises seemingly incredible; not good things such as afford complacency to our senses, but such as cannot be obtained till after this life, and presuppose what then seemed impossible, the resurrection; (4) it predicts to its followers what would seem sure to keep most of the world from embracing it, persecutions.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 3:12

All that are resolved to live godly — Therefore count the cost. Art thou resolved? In Christ — Out of Christ there is no godliness. Shall suffer persecution — More or less. There is no exception. Either the truth of scripture fails, or those that think they are religious, and are not persecuted, in some shape or other, on that very account, deceive themselves.
