    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:23

    quien cuando le maldecían no retornaba maldicin, y cuando padecía, no amenazaba, sino remitía la causa al que juzga justamente;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 2:23

    Verse 23. But
    committed himself] Though he could have inflicted any kind of punishment on his persecutors, yet to give us, in this respect also, an example that we should follow his steps, he committed his cause to him who is the righteous Judge. To avoid evil tempers, and the uneasiness and danger of avenging ourselves, it is a great advantage in all such cases to be able to refer our cause to God, and to be assured that the Judge of all the earth will do right.

    The Vulgate, one copy of the Itala, St. Cyprian, and Fulgentius, read, Tradebat autem judicanti se injuste; "He delivered himself to him who judged unrighteously;" meaning Pontius Pilate. Some critics approve of this reading, but it has not sufficient evidence to recommend it as genuine.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. Who when he was reviled, reviled not again , etc.] When he was reproached as a glutton, a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners, all the reply he made was, that Wisdom is justified of her children; and when he was charged with casting out devils by Beelzebub, the prince of devils, he defended himself, not with bad language, but with strong reasonings; and when he was said to be a Samaritan, and had a devil, his only answer was, that he had not, that he honoured his Father, and they dishonoured him; and when he was reviled on the cross, by those that passed by, by the chief priests, and Scribes, and the thieves that were crucified with him, he made no return, he opened not his mouth, and much less in a recriminating way. When he suffered he threatened not ; when he endured buffetings, and scourgings in his body, when the officers in the palace of the high priests spit in his face, buffeted him, and smote him with the palms of their hands, and bid him prophesy who smote him, all which were very provoking; yet he said not one word to them, much less threatened them with what he would do to them for such usage another day, when he would let them know, with vengeance, who it was that smote him; no, he took all patiently from them, and from Pilate, and the Roman soldiers, when scourged by them; he gave his back to the smiters, and his cheeks to them that plucked off the hair; and when he suffered crucifixion, and was put to such distressing pains and agonies, he did not threaten his crucifiers with a future judgment, when he would take vengeance, and execute his wrath upon them, but prays to his Father for the forgiveness of their sins: and, as it follows; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously ; he commended his Spirit, or soul, to God his Father, and committed his cause to him, to vindicate it in what way he should think fit, who he knew was the Judge of all the earth, that would do right; and so the Syriac version supplies it with hynyd , his judgment: which he left with God, the righteous Judge, to whom vengeance belongs; and which is an example, and an instruction to the saints to do so likewise; not to render railing for railing, or to seek revenge, but to leave their cause with their God, who will, in his own time, avenge the wrongs and injuries done them. The Vulgate Latin version reads, contrary to all the Greek copies, and other versions, but delivered himself to him that judgeth unjustly; the sense of which is, that Christ delivered himself into the hands of Pilate, who unjustly condemned him to death; but is neither the reading, nor sense of the text.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    23.
    Reviled - again (anteloidorei). Only here in the New Testament. Committed himself (paredidou). But his gives a reflexive force to the verb which has no parallel. Commentators are divided, some supplying his cause, as Rev., in margin; others, his judgment; other, his revilers. Better, the subject of the contest - his insults and injuries. Salmond renders, but left it to him, etc.

    Judgeth righteously. Compare without respect of persons, ch. i. 17.
