Bible Commentary for 2 Peter 2:5

Wesley's Notes for 2 Peter 2:5


2:5 And spared not the old, the antediluvian, world, but he preserved Noah the eighth person - that is, Noah and seven others, a preacher as well as practiser, of righteousness. Bringing a flood on the world of the ungodly - Whose numbers stood them in no stead.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Peter 2:5


2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world. The case of the antediluvians furnishes the second example of God's swift justice. But saved Noah the eighth [person]. "But preserved Noah with seven others" (Revised Version). God did not then forget the righteous. A preacher of righteousness. By example as well as by word. See Ge 7:1 1Pe 3:20.

Discussion for 2 Peter 2:5

  • Peter H Burgess on 2 Peter 2:5
    After several decades of Bible study, I have discovered two areas where it becomes all but plausible. The rash vow of Jephthah and the scenario of the troubled waters in the NT. The scriptures do not condemn Jephthah but rather exonerate him in Hebrews. Most theologians fail to fully explain the two passages and so I have posed the question to see what you may do with these strange passages. I have some idea but would welcome a second opinion. The blessing of our Lord be on you and yours. Dr. Peter H. Burgess
