    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12

    Porque los ojos del Seor estn sobre los justos, y sus oídos atentos a sus oraciones; pero el rostro del Seor est sobre aquellos que hacen males.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 3:12

    Verse 12. The
    eyes of the Lord are over the righteous] That is, He is continually under God's notice and his care; God continually watches for him and watches over him, and he is under his constant protection.

    And his ears are open unto their prayers] The original is very emphatic: The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears to their prayers.

    The righteous man ever attracts the Divine notice, and wherever he is, there is the ear of God; for, as every righteous man is a man of prayer, wherever he prays, there is the ear of God, into which the prayer, as soon as formed, enters.

    But the face of the Lord] Far from his eye being upon them, or his ear open to their requests, (for prayer they have none,) his face, his approbation, his providence and blessing, are turned away from them; and he only looks upon them to abhor them, and to turn the arm of his justice against them.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous , etc.] Who are so not merely in the sight of men, but of God; nor in their own account, and by their own works, but in the esteem of God, through the imputation of the righteousness of his Son unto them: and because he loves this righteousness, and is well pleased with it, seeing by it his law is magnified and made honourable, therefore his countenance beholds with pleasure and delight those righteous ones who are clothed with it; his eyes of omniscience, love, care, and protection, are always upon them, watching over them, delighting in them, running to and fro in the earth on behalf of them; he sees every injury done them, and in his own time and way will do them justice; which is a reason why they should not take vengeance themselves, but leave it with him, whose it is: and his ears are open to their prayers ; or prayer; in the Hebrew text, to their cry; he is a God hearing prayer, and his righteous ones have his ear; he hears them while they are speaking, and will sooner or later answer, and avenge his elect, who cry unto him day and night; for as he has an ear to hear their cries, which is not heavy, he has an arm to save them, which is not shortened; and this is another reason why they should behave as before directed, and which is still strengthened by what follows; but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil ; it is added in the psalm, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth: by the face of the Lord is meant, as the Jewish writers interpret it, the anger of the Lord; it intends, not his kind, pleasant, and loving countenance, but his angry one with the former he beholds the upright, and with it he looks upon his righteous ones; but the latter is upon and against the wicked, and is dreadful and intolerable, and the consequence of it is everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-13 - Though
    Christians cannot always be exactly of the same mind, yet the should have compassion one of another, and love as brethren. If any ma desires to live comfortably on earth, or to possess eternal life in heaven, he must bridle his tongue from wicked, abusive, or deceitfu words. He must forsake and keep far from evil actions, do all the goo he can, and seek peace with all men. For God, all-wise and every wher present, watches over the righteous, and takes care of them. None coul or should harm those who copied the example of Christ, who is perfec goodness, and did good to others as his followers.
