Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 3:6

_ _ Sara — an example of faith.

_ _ calling him lord — (Genesis 18:12).

_ _ ye areGreek, “ye have become”: “children” of Abraham and Sara by faith, whereas ye were Gentile aliens from the covenant.

_ _ afraid with any amazementGreek, “fluttering alarm,” “consternation.” Act well, and be not thrown into sudden panic, as weak females are apt to be, by any opposition from without. Bengel translates, “Not afraid OF any fluttering terror coming from without” (1 Peter 3:13-16). So the Septuagint, Proverbs 3:25 uses the same Greek word, which Peter probably refers to. Anger assails men; fear, women. You need fear no man in doing what is right: not thrown into fluttering agitation by any sudden outbreak of temper on the part of your unbelieving husbands, while you do well.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 3:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Peter 3:6

Whose children ye are — In a spiritual as well as natural sense, and entitled to the same inheritance, while ye discharge your conjugal duties, not out of fear, but for conscience' sake. Genesis 18:12.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Peter 3:6

Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are (5) not afraid with any amazement.

(5) Because women are by nature fearful, he gives them to understand that he requires of them that subjection, which is not wrung out from them either by force or fear.
