THE FIRST EPISTLE GENERAL OF PETER - Chapter 5 - Verse 4

Verse 4. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear. The prince of the pastors—the Lord Jesus Christ. "Peter, in the passage above, ranks himself with the elders; here he ranks Christ himself with the pastors."—Benson. See Barnes "1 Pe 2:25".

Comp. Heb 13:20.

Ye shall receive a crown of glory. A glorious crown or diadem. Comp. See Barnes "2 Ti 4:8".

 

That fadeth not away. This is essentially the same word, though somewhat different in form, which occurs in 1 Pe 1:4. See Barnes "1 Pe 1:4".

The word occurs nowhere else in the New Testament. Comp. See Barnes "1 Co 9:25".
