Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 3:9

_ _ they shall proceed no further — Though for a time (2 Timothy 2:16) “they shall advance or proceed (English Version, ‘increase’) unto more ungodliness,” yet there is a final limit beyond which they shall not be able to “proceed further” (Job 38:11; Revelation 11:7, Revelation 11:11). They themselves shall “wax worse and worse” (2 Timothy 3:13), but they shall at last be for ever prevented from seducing others. “Often malice proceeds deeper down, when it cannot extend itself” [Bengel].

_ _ their folly — literally, “dementation”: wise though they think themselves.

_ _ shall be manifestGreek, “shall be brought forth from concealment into open day” [Bengel], (1 Corinthians 4:5).

_ _ as theirs ... was — as that of those magicians was, when not only could they no longer try to rival Moses in sending boils, but the boils fell upon themselves: so as to the lice (Exodus 8:18; Exodus 9:11).
