Vincent Word Studies - 2 Peter 3:7 - 3:7

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

The heavens - which now are (οἱ νῦν οὐρανοὶ)

A construction similar to the then world (2Pe 3:6). The now heavens, or the present heavens.

Kept in store (τεθησαυρισμένοι)

Rev., stored up. Lit., treasured up. The same word which is used in Luk 12:21, layeth up treasure. Sometimes with the kindred noun θησαυροὺς, treasures, as Mat 6:19; lit., treasure treasures.

Unto fire

Some construe this with treasured up; as Rev., stored up for fire; others with reserved, as A. V.; others again give the sense stored with fire, indicating that the agent for the final destruction is already prepared.
