Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 2:6

_ _ Wherefore also — The oldest manuscripts read, “Because that.” The statement above is so “because it is contained in Scripture.”

_ _ Behold — calling attention to the glorious announcement of His eternal counsel.

_ _ elect — so also believers (1 Peter 2:9, “chosen,” Greek,elect generation”).

_ _ precious — in Hebrew, Isaiah 28:16, “a corner-stone of preciousness.” See on Isaiah 28:16. So in 1 Peter 2:7, Christ is said to be, to believers, “precious,” Greek, “preciousness.”

_ _ confounded — same Greek as in Romans 9:33 (Peter here as elsewhere confirming Paul’s teaching. See on Introduction; also Romans 10:11), “ashamed.” In Isaiah 28:16, “make haste,” that is, flee in sudden panic, covered with the shame of confounded hopes.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 2:4-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Peter 2:6

He that believeth shall not be confounded — In time or in eternity. Isaiah 28:16.
