2 Peter 2:5

Context
2:5 and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, 1  when God 2  brought a flood on an ungodly world, 3 

1 tn “Along with seven others” is implied in the cryptic, “the eighth, Noah.” A more literal translation thus would be, “he did protect Noah [as] the eighth…”

2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (God) has been repeated here for clarity, although this is somewhat redundant with the beginning of v. 4.

3 tn Grk “a world of the ungodly.”
