This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Grant mercy (dōiē eleos). The phrase nowhere else in the N.T. Second aorist active optative of didōmi, the usual form being doiē. This is the usual construction in a wish about the future.

Unto the house of Onesiphorus (tōi Onēsiphorou oikōi). The same phrase in 2Ti 4:19. Apparently Onesiphorus is now dead as is implied by the wish in 2Ti 1:18.

For he oft refreshed me (hoti pollakis me anepsuxen). First aorist active indicative of anapsuchō, old verb, to cool again, in lxx and Koiné[28928]š often, here only in N.T., but anapsuxis in Act 3:20. In the first imprisonment or the second. If he lost his life for coming to see Paul, it was probably recently during this imprisonment.

Was not ashamed of my chain (halusin mou ouk epaischunthē). Passive deponent again (first aorist indicative) with accusative as in 2Ti 1:8. For halusin (chain) see note on Eph 6:20. Note absence of augment in epaischunthē.
