Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jude 1:22-23

_ _ None but those who “keep themselves” are likely to “save” others.

_ _ have compassion — So one oldest manuscript reads. But two oldest manuscripts, Vulgate, etc., read, “convict”; “reprove to their conviction”; “confute, so as to convince.”

_ _ making a difference — The oldest manuscripts and versions read the accusative for the nominative, “when separating themselves” [Wahl], referring to Jude 1:19; or “when contending with you,” as the Greek is translated, Jude 1:9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jude 1:22

Meantime watch over others, as well as yourselves, and give them such help as their various needs require. For instance, Some, that are wavering in judgment, staggered by others' or by their own evil reasoning, endeavour more deeply to convince of the whole truth as it is in Jesus. Some snatch, with a swift and strong hand, out of the fire of sin and temptation. On others show compassion in a milder and gentler way; though still with a jealous fear, lest yourselves be infected with the disease you endeavour to cure.See, therefore, that while you love the sinners, ye retain the utmost abhorrence of their sins, and of any the least degree of, or approach to, them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jude 1:22

(13) And of some have compassion, making a difference:

(13) Among those who wander and go astray, the godly have to use this choice, that they handle some of them gently, and that others being even in the very flame, they endeavour to save with severe and sharp instruction of the present danger: yet so, that they do in such sort abhor the wicked and dishonest, that they avoid even the least thought of them.
