For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears 
are open to their prayers;
But the face of the Lord 
is against those who do evil. 1 Peter 3:12

Peter now completes his quote from Psalm 34. The words here come from a portion of verses 15 & 16 –

“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears 
are open to their cry.

Let him turn away from evil and do good;
Let him seek peace and pursue it.
1 Peter 3:11

Peter continues to cite the 34th Psalm. His words of this verse are from verse 14 –

“Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.”

The words, as of the previous verse, are because of what he said in verse 9 concerning the duty of believers who are called to such conduct.Read the rest

For
He who would love life
And see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil,
And his lips from speaking deceit.
1 Peter 3:10

Peter has just spoken about not returning evil for evil, or reviling for reviling. He then said, “knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.” To support this, he now cites Scripture, specifically the Greek translation of Psalm 34 –

“Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?

…not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:9

Peter continues his list of exhortations to all the brethren. Taken together with the last verse, it reads –

“Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.”

In his words of verse 9, he begins with “not returning evil for evil.” The words are in exactly the same line of thought as that of Paul in Romans 12:17, which says, “Repay no one evil for evil.”

A good analysis of this comes directly from Jesus in Matthew 5:38-48.Read the rest

Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; 1 Peter 3:8

Peter’s words, until verse 2:18, were to all who would receive his letter. In verse 2:18, he then wrote to “servants.” He then addressed “wives” in verse 3:1, and then he addressed “husbands” in verse 3:7.Read the rest
