Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 3:8


3:8 Finally - This part of the epistle reaches to #1Peter 4:11|. The apostle seems to have added the rest afterwards. Sympathizing - Rejoicing and sorrowing together. Love all believers as brethren. Be pitiful - Toward the afflicted. Be courteous - To all men. Courtesy is such a behaviour toward equals and inferiors as shows respect mixed with love.

Discussion for 1 Peter 3

    Since we live in a world where there is Injustice, we want to remain humble and return evil for evil to no one.
  • A disciple
    I wonder how verses 1-6 are NOT taught to our women here in the West! What a beautiful and edifying thing it is, to know and understand, and practice, ALL THAT GOD HAS COMMANDED AND MADE! God has made everything in His wisdom and knowledge, very good; and it is our greatest comfort and joy and glory, to be perfect in the character and nature that He made us to be. Remember the iniquity of Satan!
  • Irene123
    1 Pet. 3:15 - "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts ..... "; the word 'sanctify' tripped me up - until I asked an elder about it. I had always read or heard that God sanctified us; how could we sanctify Him? By setting Him apart in our daily walk. He sets us apart to Himself from the world, we set Him apart in our lives, how we live holily for Him, in His will.
  • Isaac Niitan Cofie for verse 19
