Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 1:5

_ _ keptGreek, “who are being guarded.” He answers the objection, Of what use is it that salvation is “reserved” for us in heaven, as in a calm secure haven, when we are tossed in the world as on a troubled sea in the midst of a thousand wrecks? [Calvin]. As the inheritance is “kept” (1 Peter 1:4) safely for the far distant “heirs,” so must they be “guarded” in their persons so as to be sure of reaching it. Neither shall it be wanting to them, nor they to it. “We are guarded in the world as our inheritance is kept in heaven.” This defines the “you” of 1 Peter 1:4. The inheritance, remember, belongs only to those who “endure unto the end,” being “guarded” by, or IN “the power of God, through faith.” Contrast Luke 8:13. God Himself is our sole guarding power. “It is His power which saves us from our enemies. It is His long-suffering which saves us from ourselves” [Bengel]. Jude 1:1, “preserved in Christ Jesus”; Philippians 1:6; Philippians 4:7, “keep”; Greek, “guard,” as here. This guarding is effected, on the part of God, by His “power,” the efficient cause; on the part of man, “through faith,” the effective means.

_ _ byGreek, “in.” The believer lives spiritually in God, and in virtue of His power, and God lives in him. “In” marks that the cause is inherent in the means, working organically through them with living influence, so that the means, in so far as the cause works organically through them, exist also in the cause. The power of God which guards the believer is no external force working upon him from without with mechanical necessity, but the spiritual power of God in which he lives, and with whose Spirit he is clothed. It comes down on, and then dwells in him, even as he is in it [Steiger]. Let none flatter himself he is being guarded by the power of God unto salvation, if he be not walking by faith. Neither speculative knowledge and reason, nor works of seeming charity, will avail, severed from faith. It is through faith that salvation is both received and kept.

_ _ unto salvation — the final end of the new birth. “Salvation,” not merely accomplished for us in title by Christ, and made over to us on our believing, but actually manifested, and finally completed.

_ _ ready to be revealed — When Christ shall be revealed, it shall be revealed. The preparations for it are being made now, and began when Christ came: “All things are now ready”; the salvation is already accomplished, and only waits the Lord’s time to be manifested: He “is ready to judge.”

_ _ last time — the last day, closing the day of grace; the day of judgment, of redemption, of the restitution of all things, and of perdition of the ungodly.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 1:3-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Peter 1:5

Who are kept — The inheritance is reserved; the heirs are kept for it. By the power of God — Which worketh all in all, which guards us against all our enemies. Through faith — Through which alone salvation is both received and retained. Ready to be revealed — That revelation is made in the last day. It was more and more ready to be revealed, ever since Christ came.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Peter 1:5

(2) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the (d) last time.

(2) Now he shows by what way we come to that glory, that is, through all types of afflictions. Wherein nonetheless faith maketh us so secure, that we are not overcome with sorrow. But through the beholding of God himself (who otherwise is invisible) with the eyes of faith, we are made unspeakably joyful. Because all such things, as they are but for a time, so are they not applied unto us to destroy us, but as it were by fire to purge us, and to make us perfect that at length we may obtain salvation.

(d) This is that time which Daniel calls the time of the end, when the great restoring of all things shall be, which all creation looks for; (Romans 8:19)
