1 Peter 2
The apostle exhorteth the Christian converts to lay aside all uncharitableness. He sheweth their privileges through Christ the chief corner stone. He beseecheth them to abstain from fleshly lusts, and by their good conversation to promote God's glory among the Gentiles. He enforceth obedience to magistrates; and teacheth servants to obey their masters, and to suffer patiently for well doing, after the example of Christ.
