THE SECOND EPISTLE GENERAL OF PETER - Chapter 1 - Verse 6

Verse 6. And to knowledge temperance. On the meaning of the word temperance, See Barnes "Ac 24:25, and See Barnes "1 Co 9:25".

The word here refers to the mastery over all our evil inclinations and appetites. We are to allow none of them to obtain control over us. See Barnes "1 Co 6:12".

This would include, of course, abstinence from intoxicating drinks; but it would also embrace all evil passions and propensities. Everything is to be confined within proper limits, and to no propensity of our nature are we to give indulgence beyond the limits which the law of God allows.

And to temperance patience. See Barnes "Jas 1:4".

 

And to patience godliness. True piety.

 See Barnes "1 Pe 1:3".

See Barnes "1 Ti 2:2"; See Barnes "1 Ti 3:16"; See Barnes "1 Ti 4:7, See Barnes "1 Ti 4:8"; See Barnes "1 Ti 6:3, See Barnes "1 Ti 6:5, See Barnes "1 Ti 6:6"

See Barnes "1 Ti 6:11".
