(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

For the elect’s sake (dia tous eklektous). “Because of the elect.” God’s elect (Rom 8:33; Col 3:12; Tit 1:1) for whom Paul suffered so much (2Co 1:6; 2Co 12:15; Phi 2:17; Eph 3:1, Eph 3:13).

That they also may obtain (hina kai autoi tuchōsin). Purpose clause with second aorist (effective) active subjunctive of tugchanō with genitive. “They as well as I,” Paul means.

The salvation (tēs sōtērias). The final salvation “with eternal glory” (meta doxēs aiōniou). This phrase only here and 1Pe 5:10, but in 2Co 4:17 we have “eternal weight of glory.”
