hastening: [The RV] justly discard[s] the influence of the Vulgate in "hasting unto" (as indeed the margin of the Authorized Version suggests); but whether "earnestly desiring," as in the Bodleian Syriac, adequately conveys the meaning is another matter. If they mean hastening the coming of that day in heart, for aught more seems farfetched or worse, I believe them right; but this is rather exposition or application than rendering. (Bible Treasury 14:96)
by reason of which: Nor is [the RV's].. version of δι’ἤν, "by reason of which," though of course correct grammatically, the only one that is sure. The temporal sense is no less just. It is a question of context which suits best here. Bengel construes it with παρουσία. (Bible Treasury 14:96)
