Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 3:14

_ _ that ye ... be found of him — “in His sight” [Alford], at His coming; plainly implying a personal coming.

_ _ without spot — at the coming marriage feast of the Lamb, in contrast to 2 Peter 2:13, “Spots they are and blemishes while they feast,” not having on the King’s pure wedding garment.

_ _ blameless — (1 Corinthians 1:8; Philippians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 3:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:23).

_ _ in peace — in all its aspects, towards God, your own consciences, and your fellow men, and as its consequence eternal blessedness: “the God of peace” will effect this for you.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 3:11-18.
