This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Henceforth (λοιπὸν)

Lit. as to what remains. Λοιπὸν or τὸ λοιπὸν either finally, as 2Co 13:11; or henceforth as here, Mar 14:41; 1Co 7:29, Heb 10:13 : or for the rest, besides, as 1Th 4:1 (note); 2Th 3:1.

There is laid up (ἀπόκειται)

Or laid away. In Pastorals only here. In Paul, see Col 1:5 (note). Luk 19:20 of the pound laid up in a napkin.

A crown of righteousness (ὃ τῆς δικαιοσύνης στέφανος)

The phrase N.T.o. See on στεφανοῦται is crowned, 2Ti 2:5. Rend. the crown.

Judge (κριτής)

Comp. 2Ti 4:1. Mostly in Luke and Acts. oP. Only here in Pastorals. Applied to Christ, Act 10:42; Jam 5:9; to God, Heb 12:28; Jam 4:12.

Shall give (ἀποδώσει)

Most frequent in Synoptic Gospels. It may mean to give over or away, as Mat 27:58; Act 5:8; Heb 12:16 : or to give back, recompose, as here, Mat 6:4, Mat 6:6, Mat 6:18; Rom 2:6.

At that day (ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ)

See on 2Ti 1:12.

That love his appearing (τοῖς ἠγαπηκόσι τὴν ἐπιφάνειαν αὐτοῦ)

For love rend. have loved. Appearing, Christ's second coming: see on 1Ti 6:14; see on 2Th 2:8. The phrase N.T.o. Some have interpreted appearing as Christ's first coming into the world, as 2Ti 1:10; but the other sense is according to the analogy of 1Co 2:9; Phi 3:20; Heb 9:28.
