2 Timothy 4:8

Henceforth (loipon). Accusative case, "for the rest." There is laid up for me (apokeitai moi). Present passive of apokeimai, old verb, to be laid away. See Colossians 1:5 for the hope laid away. Paul's "crown of righteousness" (o th dikaiosunh stepano, genitive of apposition, the crown that consists in righteousness and is also the reward for righteousness, the victor's crown as in 1 Corinthians 9:25 which see) "is laid away" for him. At that day (en ekeinh th hmerai). That great and blessed day ( 1 Corinthians 1:12 1 Corinthians 1:18 ). The righteous judge (o dikaio krith). "The just judge," the umpire who makes no mistakes who judges us all ( 2 Corinthians 5:10 ). Shall give me (apodwsei moi). Future active of apodidwmi. "Will give back" as in Romans 2:6 and in full. But also to all them that have loved his appearing (alla pasin toi hgaphkosin thn epipaneian autou). Dative case of the perfect active participle of agapaw, to love, who have loved and still love his second coming. Epipaneia here can as in Romans 1:10 be interpreted of Christ's Incarnation.
