Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 4:6

_ _ Greek, “For I am already being offered”; literally, as a libation; appropriate to the shedding of his blood. Every sacrifice began with an initiatory libation on the victim’s head (compare Note, see on Philippians 2:17). A motive to stimulate Timothy to faithfulness — the departure and final blessedness of Paul; it is the end that crowns the work [Bengel]. As the time of his departure was indicated to Peter, so to Paul (2 Peter 1:14).

_ _ my departure — literally, “loosing anchor” (see on Philippians 1:23). Dissolution.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 4:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 4:6

The time of my departure is at hand — So undoubtedly God had shown him. I am ready to be offered up — Literally, to be poured out, as the wine and oil were on the ancient sacrifices.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(4) He foretells his death to be at hand, and sets before them an excellent example, both of invincible constancy, and sure hope.
