This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Do thy diligence (σπούδασον)

Earnestly endeavor. See on 2Ti 2:15, and comp. 2Ti 1:3. Do diligence and give diligence (2Pe 1:10) are old English phrases. So Chaucer:

“And night and day dide ever his diligence

Hir for to please.”

Manciple's T. 141.

“And ech of hem doth al his diligence

To doon un-to the feste reverence.”

Clerke's T. 195
