2 John 1:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Deceivers (πλάνοι)

See on we deceive ourselves, 1 John 1:8.

Are entered into (ἐξῆλθαν εἰς)

Rev., are gone forth into. The A.V. follows the reading εἰσῆλθον entered into. The tense is the aorist, strictly rendered, went forth. It may indicate a particular crisis, at which they went forth from the Christian society.

Who confess not (οἱ μὴ ὁμολογοῦντες)

The article with the participle describes the character of this class of deceivers, and does not merely assert a definite fact concerning them. Compare Mark 15:41, "other women which came up with Him" (αἱ συνσνσβᾶσαι). Confess. See on Matthew 7:23; see on Matthew 10:32.

Is come (ἐρχόμενον)

Wrong. The verb is in the present participle, coming, which describes the manhood of Christ as still being manifested. See on 1 John 3:5. In 1 John 4:2 we have the manifestation treated as a past fact by the perfect tense, ἐληλυθο.τα has come. Rev., that Jesus Christ cometh. So in 1 Thessalonians 1:10, τῆς ὀργῆς τῆς ἐρχομένης is the wrath which is coming; which has already begun its movement and is advancing: not merely, as A.V., the wrath to come, which makes it wholly a future event. See on lingereth, 2 Peter 2:3.

An antichrist (ὁ ἀντίχριστος)

Rev, rendering the definite article, the antichrist. See on 1 John 2:18.
