 “Denying the Lord that bought them.” The ransom price purchased all (Matt. 13:44,38) but only those having faith benefit (1 Tim. 2:6; Rom. 3:22). (Help on Hard Verses by A.C. Brown)
 Even before the Kingdom of the heavens came or the church was founded on the Lord dead, risen, and ascended, He warned (in Matt. 13) of the darnel which the enemy would sow among the wheat. Clearly it is neither pagans nor Jews but nominal Christians, who could not be cut off, and should pursue their destructive evil till the Son of Man come in personal judgment. (2 Peter 2:1-3 by W. Kelly)
 in 1 Timothy 4 he says that the Spirit speaks expressly of some in latter times falling away from the faith, heeding deceiving spirits in hypocrisy of legend-mongers without conscience yet ascetics; and in 2 Timothy 3 he speaks of the opposite school of self-will or self-indulgence and proud lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God (2 Peter 2:1-3 by W. Kelly)
 There is no difficulty in the Apostle's predicating of these false teachers that the Sovereign Master bought them. It is "purchase," which is universal, not "redemption" (2 Peter 2:1-3 by W. Kelly)

Master: the Revisers give rightly "the Master" (δεσπότην) that bought them; for it is purchase, not redemption, which is in question. Purchase is universal; not so redemption, which is inseparable from faith in Christ and the forgiveness of offenses. It is clear from the passage before us that the most wicked are "bought" by the Master, whom they deny to their own swift destruction; that they were "redeemed" is mere assumption, and, in fact, a grave error. (Bible Treasury 14:95)
bought: [Q. T.E. asks if it is right to say of those who die in their sins, that they were redeemed by the blood of Jesus. The purchase of a slave, he remarks, is never called his redemption, unless he is bought for the express purpose of being set free.]
A. T.E. is arguing from the application of our English word "redemption;" not from the meaning of the original, which simply means "bought," and is so translated in 2 Peter 2:1, of the lost and in 1 Cor. 6:20, 7:23, of the saved. The same word occurs upwards of twenty times in the gospels, and is applied to the purchase of land and cattle, food and raiment, etc. In fact, only in the Revelation is it rendered "redeemed;" and even there, the same word bears the sense "buy" exactly the same number of times. It will thus be seen that the argument fails. For if in Greek the same word is translated either way, it is clear that the term in itself does not involve the ultimate destiny of the purchased, or the purpose of the purchaser. But the passage already referred to in 2 Peter is decisive, that false teachers, enemies of the flock of God, are said to deny the Lord (δεσπότην) that bought or redeemed them. The difficulty is owing to a not sufficiently large view of God's ways and of Christ's work. The reader will do well to weigh John 17:2, and Heb. 9, 10. (Bible Treasury 3:48, see also Bible Treasury 3:111 and Bible Treasury 16:277)
