Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Timothy 4:8

_ _ a crown — rather as Greek,the crown.” The “henceforth” marks the decisive moment; he looks to his state in a threefold aspect: (1) The past “I have fought”; (2) The immediate present; “there is laid up for me.” (3) The future “the Lord will give in that day” [Bengel].

_ _ crown — a crown, or garland, used to be bestowed at the Greek national games on the successful competitor in wrestling, running, etc. (compare 1 Peter 5:4; Revelation 2:10).

_ _ of righteousness — The reward is in recognition of righteousness wrought in Paul by God’s Spirit; the crown is prepared for the righteous; but it is a crown which consists in righteousness. Righteousness will be its own reward (Revelation 22:11). Compare Exodus 39:30. A man is justified gratuitously by the merits of Christ through faith; and when he is so justified God accepts his works and honors them with a reward which is not their due, but is given of grace. “So great is God’s goodness to men that He wills that their works should be merits, though they are merely His own gifts” [Pope Celestine I., Epistles, 12].

_ _ giveGreek, “shall award” in righteous requital as “Judge” (Acts 17:31; 2 Corinthians 5:10; 2 Thessalonians 1:6, 2 Thessalonians 1:7).

_ _ in that day — not until His appearing (2 Timothy 1:12). The partakers of the first resurrection may receive a crown also at the last day, and obtain in that general assembly of all men, a new award of praise. The favorable sentence passed on the “brethren” of the Judge, who sit with Him on His throne, is in Matthew 25:40, taken for granted as already awarded, when that affecting those who benefited them is being passed [Bengel]. The former, the elect Church who reign with Christ in the millennium, are fewer than the latter. The righteous heavenly Judge stands in contrast to the unrighteous earthly judges who condemned Paul.

_ _ me — individual appropriation. Greek, “not only to me.”

_ _ them that loveGreek, “have loved, and do love”; habitual love and desire for Christ’s appearing, which presupposes faith (compare Hebrews 9:28). Compare the sad contrast, 2 Timothy 4:10, “having loved this present world.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Timothy 4:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Timothy 4:8

The crown of that righteousness — Which God has imputed to me and wrought in me. Will render to all — This increases the joy of Paul, and encourages Timotheus. Many of these St. Paul himself had gained. That have loved his appearing — Which only a real Christian can do. I say a real Christian, to comply with the mode of the times: else they would not understand, although the word Christian necessarily implies whatsoever is holy, as God is holy. Strictly speaking, to join real or sincere to a word of so complete an import, is grievously to debase its noble signification, and is like adding long to eternity or wide to immensity.
