    :20 Lu 6:32

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:19

    Porque esto es debido a la gracia, si alguno a causa de la conciencia que tiene delante de Dios, sufre molestias padeciendo injustamente.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 2:19

    Verse 19. For this is thankworthy] If, in a conscientious discharge of your
    duty, you suffer evil, this is in the sight of God thankworthy, pleasing, and proper; it shows that you prefer his authority to your own ease, peace, and emolument; it shows also, as Dr. Macknight has well observed, that they considered their obligation to relative duties not to depend on the character of the person to whom they were to be performed, nor on their performing the duties they owed to their servants, but on the unalterable relations of things established by God.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. For this is thankworthy , etc.] Or grace; this is a
    fruit and effect of grace, an instance of it, in which it shows itself: the Syriac version adds, with God; and so it is read in one of Beza's copies, and in the Alexandrian copy, and some others; that is, this is grateful to God, and acceptable with him; as in ( 1 Peter 2:20), if a man for conscience towards God ; or, for a good conscience, as the Syriac version reads it; for acting according to his conscience, in matters of religion, in the things of God; for the knowledge of God, as the Arabic version renders it; for the knowledge of God in Christ; for the Gospel of Christ, and a profession of it: or, for God, as the Ethiopic version; for the cause of God and truth, and for the sake of things appertaining to God, and that make for his glory: endure grief ; what occasions grief, as severe words, bitter reproaches, hard censures, and heavy blows; and that with patience, and without murmuring, and with resignation to the will of God: suffering wrongfully ; there being no just cause for an ill look, word, or blow, to be given.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-25 -
    Servants in those days generally were slaves, and had heathen masters who often used them cruelly; yet the apostle directs them to be subjec to the masters placed over them by Providence, with a fear to dishonou or offend God. And not only to those pleased with reasonable service but to the severe, and those angry without cause. The sinful misconduc of one relation, does not justify sinful behaviour in the other; the servant is bound to do his duty, though the master may be sinfull froward and perverse. But masters should be meek and gentle to their servants and inferiors. What glory or distinction could it be, for professed Christians to be patient when corrected for their faults? But if when they behaved well they were ill treated by proud and passionat heathen masters, yet bore it without peevish complaints, or purposes of revenge, and persevered in their duty, this would be acceptable to God as a distinguishing effect of his grace, and would be rewarded by him Christ's death was designed not only for an example of patience unde sufferings, but he bore our sins; he bore the punishment of them, an thereby satisfied Divine justice. Hereby he takes them away from us The fruits of Christ's sufferings are the death of sin, and a new holy life of righteousness; for both which we have an example, and powerfu motives, and ability to perform also, from the death and resurrectio of Christ. And our justification; Christ was bruised and crucified as sacrifice for our sins, and by his stripes the diseases of our soul are cured. Here is man's sin; he goes astray; it is his own act. Hi misery; he goes astray from the pasture, from the Shepherd, and from the flock, and so exposes himself to dangers without number. Here is the recovery by conversion; they are now returned as the effect of Divine grace. This return is, from all their errors and wanderings, to Christ. Sinners, before their conversion, are always going astray their life is a continued error __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    19. Conscience toward
    God (suneidhsin Qeou). Rev., in margin, conscious of God. The idea is not conscientiousness in the ordinary sense, but the conscious sense of one's relation to God; his consciousness of God. Thus one suffers patiently, not from a conscientious sense of dury, but from an inner consciousness of his relation to God as a son, and to Christ as a joint-heir, which involves his suffering with him no less than his being glorified with him.
