People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 2:26

2Ti 2:26 And [that] they may recover. They are in "the snare of the devil", taken captive at will. The only hope is that in the providence of God they "may recover" themselves (the idea is, to "return to soberness", Revised Version, margin), repent, and acknowledge the truth. Men are commanded to "Repent", Mt 3:2 Ac 2:38, etc., but here God is alluded to as "peradventure" giving repentance. The meaning is made clear by comparing with Ac 11:18: "Then hath God also the Gentiles granted repentance unto life". The meaning there is that God has granted to the Gentiles the privilege of repentance, even as unto the Jews. So Paul's idea here is that God, peradventure, may grant these, though sinning so grievously, opportunities for repentance, instead of delivering them over to hardness of heart.

Kent Kelley's comment on 2012-10-07 11:24:32:

It appears that there is also this Sovereign use in satanic chastening means in the sanctification of a justified true believer. Seems to be such in 1 Corinthians 5:4,5 "that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus." Feel free to communicate. Kent in Ukraine
