THE FIRST EPISTLE GENERAL OF PETER - Chapter 4 - Verse 13

Verse 13. But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings. That is, sufferings of the same kind that he endured, and inflicted for the same reasons. Comp. Col 1:24; Jas 1:2; See Barnes "Mt 5:12".

The meaning here is, that they were to regard it as a matter of rejoicing that they were identified with Christ, even in suffering. See this sentiment illustrated at length See Barnes "Php 3:10".

 

That, when his glory shall be revealed. At the day of judgment. See Barnes "Mt 26:30".

Ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. Being admitted to the rewards which he will then confer on his people. Comp. 1 Th 2:19. Every good man will have joy when, immediately at death, he is received into the presence of his Saviour; but his joy will be complete only when, in the presence of assembled worlds, he shall hear the sentence which shah confirm him in happiness for ever.

{d} "rejoice" Jas 1:2 {e} "when his glory" 2 Ti 2:12
