2 Timothy 4:9

2 Timothy 4:9

Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me.
] From Ephesus, where Timothy was, to Rome, where the apostle was; and this request did not arise purely from a desire of seeing Timothy, as in ( 2 Timothy 1:4 ) but rather because he had some things to say to him, relating to the care of the churches and the good of the interest of Christ, which he chose not to write with ink and paper; and he desires the rather that he would use diligence, and hasten his coming to him; partly because winter was coming on, when travelling would not be so safe and comfortable, ( 2 Timothy 4:21 ) and partly because the time of his death was at hand, ( 2 Timothy 4:7 ) and also because he was almost alone.
