Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 4:17

_ _ the Lord — the more because men deserted me.

_ _ stood with me — stronger than “came forward with me” (Greek, 2 Timothy 4:16).

_ _ strengthenedGreek,put strength in me.”

_ _ by me — “through me”; through my means. One single occasion is often of the greatest moment.

_ _ the preaching — “the Gospel proclamation.”

_ _ might be fully known — might be fully made (see on 2 Timothy 4:5).

_ _ that all the Gentiles — present at my trial, “might hear” the Gospel proclaimed then. Rome was the capital of the Gentile world, so that a proclamation of the truth to the Romans was likely to go forth to the rest of the Gentile world.

_ _ I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion — namely, Satan, the roaring, devouring lion (Luke 22:31; 1 Peter 5:8). I was prevented falling into his snare (2 Timothy 2:26; Psalms 22:21; 2 Peter 2:9); 2 Timothy 4:18 agrees with this interpretation, “The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work,” namely, both from evil and the evil one, as the Greek of the Lord’s Prayer expresses it. It was not deliverance from Nero (who was called the lion) which he rejoiced in, for he did not fear death (2 Timothy 4:6-8), but deliverance from the temptation, through fear, to deny His Lord: so Alford.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 4:16-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 4:17

The preaching — The gospel which we preach.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Timothy 4:17

Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and [that] all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the (e) lion.

(e) Of Nero.
