2 John 1:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Look to yourselves that (βλέπετε ἑαυτούς ἵνα)

Ἵνα in order that, marks the intent of the caution. See on John 15:13.

We lose (ἀπολέσωμεν)

The best texts read ἀπολέσητε, ye lose. So Rev, with destroy in margin. For the meanings of the verb see on Luke 9:25.

We receive (ἀπολάβωμεν)

The best texts read ἀπολάβητε ye receive. The compounded preposition ἀπό, has the force of back: receive back from God.

Reward (μισθὸν)

See on 2 Peter 2:13, and compare Matthew 5:12; John 4:36; 1 Corinthians 3:8; Revelation 11:18; Revelation 22:12.
