2 Timothy 3:8

Like as (on tropon).
"In which manner." Adverbial accusative and incorporation of the antecedent tropon into the relative clause.

Jannes and Jambres (Iannhv kai Iambrhv).
Traditional names of the magicians who withstood Moses (Targum of Jonathan on Exodus 7:11).

Withstood (antesthsan).
Second aorist active (intransitive) of antisthmi, to stand against, "they stood against" (with dative Mwusei). Same word used of Elymas in Acts 13:8 and repeated here antistantai (present middle indicative). Paul here pictures the seducers of the gunaikaria above.

Corrupted in mind (kateptarmenoi ton noun).
Perfect passive participle of katapteirw, old compound, in N.T. only here in critical text. See 2 Corinthians 11:3; 1 Timothy 6:5 for diapteirw. The accusative noun is retained in the passive.

Reprobate (adokimoi).
See 1 Corinthians 9:27; Titus 1:16. They had renounced their trust (pistin) in Christ.
