Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 1:7

_ _ Aim of the “temptations.”

_ _ trial — testing, proving. That your faith so proved “may be found (aorist; once for all, as the result of its being proved on the judgment-day) unto (eventuating in) praise,” etc., namely, the praise to be bestowed by the Judge.

_ _ than that of gold — rather, “than gold.”

_ _ though — “which perisheth, YET is tried with fire.” If gold, though perishing (1 Peter 1:18), is yet tried with fire in order to remove dross and test its genuineness, how much more does your faith, which shall never perish, need to pass through a fiery trial to remove whatever is defective, and to test its genuineness and full value?

_ _ glory — “Honor” is not so strong as “glory.” As “praise” is in words, so “honor” is in deeds: honorary reward.

_ _ appearing — Translate as in 1 Peter 1:13, “revelation.” At Christ’s revelation shall take place also the revelation of the sons of God (Romans 8:19, “manifestation,” Greek, “revelation”; 1 John 3:2, Greek, “manifested ... manifested,” for “appear ... appear”).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 1:6-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Peter 1:7

That the trial of your faith — That is, your faith which is tried. Which is much more precious than gold — For gold, though it bear the fire, yet will perish with the world. May be found — Though it doth not yet appear. Unto praise — From God himself. And honour — From men and angels. And glory — Assigned by the great Judge.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
