“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:7 But the end of all things - And so of their wrongs, and your sufferings. Is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer - Temperance helps watchfulness, and both of them help prayer. Watch, that ye may pray; and pray, that ye may watch.
1Pe 4:7 The end of all things is at hand. The end of Jerusalem was not far off, and it does not seem that it was given to Peter to distinguish clearly between that and the end of all things, which truly draweth near. Watch to prayer. Compare 1Th 5:6,8 Mt 24:42.
