Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 3:6

_ _ of this sortGreek, “of these,” such as were described (2 Timothy 3:5).

_ _ creep into — stealthily.

_ _ laden with sins — (Isaiah 1:4); applying to the “silly women” whose consciences are burdened with sins, and so are a ready prey to the false teachers who promise ease of conscience if they will follow them. A bad conscience leads easily to shipwreck of faith (1 Timothy 1:19).

_ _ divers lusts — not only animal lusts, but passion for change in doctrine and manner of teaching; the running after fashionable men and fashionable tenets, drawing them in the most opposite directions [Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 3:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 3:6

Of these — That is, mere formalists.
