THE SECOND EPISTLE OF PAUL TO TIMOTHY - Chapter 2 - Verse 21

Verse 21. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel of honour. If a man cleanse or purify himself. Comp. See Barnes "Joh 15:2".

The word "these" refers, here, to the persons represented by the vessels of wood and of earth—the vessels made to dishonour, as mentioned in the previous verse. The idea is, that if one would preserve himself from the corrupting influence of such men, he would be fitted to be a vessel of honour, or to be employed in the most useful and honourable service in the cause of his Master. On the word vessel, See Barnes "Ac 9:16".

 

And meet for the Master's use. Fit to be employed by the Lord Jesus in promoting his work on earth.

{b} "If a man" Jer 15:19 {c} "prepared" 2 Ti 3:17
