Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 2:7

People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 2:7


1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe. The prophecy is now applied. [He is] precious to believers because they enjoy the promise embraced in "he that believeth on him shall not be confounded". (1Pe 2:6). But unto them which be disobedient. Those who do not believe and hence, disobey; to these he is the stone which the builders rejected, which is spoken of in Ps 118:22. See also Mt 21:42 Ac 4:11. The same is made the head of the corner. Peter quotes this passage from the Old Testament and applies it with great force (Ac 4:11). The rejected Savior had become the Head of God's spiritual temple.

    "..THE COVETOUS WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH" This is a part that many might think strange, or inconsistent with the New Testament dispensation of mercy and grace. But such thinking is really inconsistent with the moral excellence and love of the truth in God. Our lives do not consist in those things we would lust after, or possess, or how through them we would hope to be admired and accepted by men.
