idle: It was a change for the worse when the A.V. for "idle" rendered the word "barren," and led so many readers and preachers to guess what the difference could be between "barren" and "unfruitful." But there is no room for doubt or difficulty. The first word is properly translated "idle" elsewhere in the A.V., as it should be here; and so Tyndale, Cranmer and the Geneva V. had given. Wycliffe and his follower, as well as the Rhemish, have "voide" or "vacant" (as the last), which can hardly be said to have any just sense. (Epist. of Peter, Part 2, p.58-9)
^ not idle... for: "idle (marg. Authorized Version) nor unfruitful" is an improvement without "to be;" but surely εἰς here means "as to" or "as regards," not "unto" of the Revised Version any more than "in" of the Authorized Version. (Bible Treasury 14:95)
