Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 1:24


1:24 All flesh - Every human creature is transient and withering as grass. And all the glory of it - His wisdom, strength, wealth, righteousness. As the flower - The most short - lived part of it. The grass - That is, man. The flower - That is, his glory. Is fallen off - As it were, while we are speaking. #Isaiah 40:6|, &c.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 1:24


1Pe 1:24 All flesh [is] as grass. See Isa 40:6. God's word lives forever, but the flesh is as evanescent as the grass. And all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The fleshly life, like the grass, is soon felled by death, but a birth from the living and eternal word is a birth to eternal life.

    1Pet.1:1 - " ..... to the 'strangers' ..... " Peter was writing here to Christians who were scattered under the persecution of the Romans after the Day of Pentecost. The word strangers used here denotes - strangers to this world which they have been taken out of spiritually; we are 'in' this world, but not 'of' this world. To be 'of' it is to partake of its sins.
