1 Peter 5:10
But the God of all grace,
who hath called us unto his eternal glory
by Christ Jesus,
after that ye have suffered a while,
make you perfect,
Notes from Clarke’s Comentary
But the God of all grace –
The Fountain of infinite compassion, mercy, and goodness.
In the name of the God of all grace; the God who is the most merciful and the most compassionate, who is an exuberant Fountain of love and compassion to all his intelligent offspring.
Who hath called us –
By the preaching of the Gospel.
Unto his eternal glory –
To the infinite felicity of the heavenly state.
By Christ Jesus –
Through the merit of his passion and death, by the influence of his Holy Spirit, by the precepts of his Gospel, and by the splendor of his own example.
After that ye have suffered a while –
Having suffered a little time; that is, while ye are enduring these persecutions, God will cause all to work together for your good.
Make you perfect –
He will make you perfect. – Put you in complete joint as the timbers of a building.
Make you firm in every part; adapt you strongly to each other, so that you may be mutual supports, the whole building being one in the Lord.
Cramp and bind every part, so that there shall be no danger of warping, splitting, or falling.
Cause all to rest so evenly and firmly
upon the best and surest foundation,
that ye may grow together to a holy temple in the Lord:
in a word,
that ye may be complete in all the mind that was in Christ;
supported in all your trials and difficulties;
strengthened to resist and overcome all your enemies;
and after all abide, firmly founded, in the truth of grace.
