Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 4:19

_ _ General conclusion from 1 Peter 4:17, 1 Peter 4:18. Seeing that the godly know that their sufferings are by God’s will, to chasten them that they may not perish with the world, they have good reason to trust God cheerfully amidst sufferings, persevering in well-doing.

_ _ let themGreek, “let them also,” “let even them,” as well as those not suffering. Not only under ordinary circumstances, but also in time of suffering, let believers commit. (Compare Note, see on 1 Peter 3:14).

_ _ according to the will of God — (See on 1 Peter 3:17). God’s will that the believer should suffer (1 Peter 4:17), is for his good. One oldest manuscript and Vulgate read, “in well-doings”; contrast ill-doings, 1 Peter 4:15. Our committing of ourselves to God is to be, not in indolent and passive quietism, but accompanied with active well-doings.

_ _ faithful — to His covenant promises.

_ _ Creator — who is therefore also our Almighty Preserver. He, not we, must keep our souls. Sin destroyed the original spiritual relation between creature and Creator, leaving that only of government. Faith restores it; so that the believer, living to the will of God (1 Peter 4:2), rests implicitly on his Creator’s faithfulness.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 4:12-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Peter 4:19

Let them that suffer according to the will of God — Both for a good cause, and in a right spirit. Commit to him their souls — (Whatever becomes of the body) as a sacred depositum. In well doing — Be this your care, to do and suffer well: He will take care of the rest. As unto a faithful Creator — In whose truth, love, and power, ye may safely trust.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Peter 4:19

(18) Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls [to him] in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

(18) The conclusion: seeing the godly are not afflicted by chance, but by the will of God, they ought not to despair, but go forward nonetheless in the way of holiness and well doing, commending themselves to God their faithful creator, that is to say, their Father.
