18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.
18 May the Lord grant that he will find mercy from the Lord on that day! You know very well in how many ways he helped me in Ephesus.
18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that Day!--and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.
18 May God on the Last Day treat him as well as he treated me. And then there was all the help he provided in Ephesus - but you know that better than I.
18 The Lord grant to him that he may find mercy from the Lord in that Day--and you know very well how many ways he ministered to me
18 May the Lord show him special kindness on the day of Christ's return. And you know very well how helpful he was in Ephesus.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 Timothy 1:18
Commentary on 2 Timothy 1:15-18
(Read 2 Timothy 1:15-18)
The apostle mentions the constancy of Onesiphorus; he oft refreshed him with his letters, and counsels, and comforts, and was not ashamed of him. A good man will seek to do good. The day of death and judgment is an awful day. And if we would have mercy then, we must seek for it now of the Lord. The best we can ask, for ourselves or our friends, is, that the Lord will grant that we and they may find mercy of the Lord, when called to pass out of time into eternity, and to appear before the judgment seat of Christ.
