Our crown is distinguished from theirs in that it is “incorruptible” and “fadeth not away,” as the leaves of theirs soon did. “The crown of life.” Not a kingly “crown” (a different Greek word, diadema): the prerogative of the Lord Jesus (Revelation 19:12).

_ _ gloryGreek,the glory,” namely, to be then revealed (1 Peter 5:1; 1 Peter 4:13).

_ _ that fadeth not awayGreek, “amaranthine” (compare 1 Peter 1:4).
