2 Peter 3:17 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Being led away (συναπαχθέντες)

Better, Rev., carried away. It is the word used by Paul of Barnabas, when he dissembled with Peter at Antioch. "Barnabas was carried away with their dissimulation" (Galatians 2:13).

Of the wicked (ἀθέσμων)

See on 2 Peter 2:7.

Fall from (ἐκπέσητε)

Lit., "fall out of." Compare Galatians 5:4.

Steadfastness (στηριγμοῦ)

Only here in New Testament. See on 2 Peter 1:12.
