    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:15

    Así que, ninguno de vosotros padezca como homicida, o ladrn, o malhechor, o codicioso de los bienes ajenos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 4:15

    Verse 15. But let none of you suffer-as a
    busybody in other men's matters] allotrioepiskopov? The inspector of another; meddling with other people's concerns, and forgetting their own; such persons are hated of all men. But some think that meddling with those in public office is here intended, as if he had said: Meddle not with the affairs of state, leave public offices and public officers to their own master, strive to live peaceably with all men, and show yourselves to be humble and unaspiring.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. But let none of you
    suffer as a murderer , etc.] The punishment for murder was death by the law of God, ( Genesis 9:6) or as a thief ; whose fine or mulct, according to the Jewish law, was a fivefold or fourfold restitution, according to the nature of the thing that was stolen, ( Exodus 22:1) or as an evildoer ; a breaker of any of the laws of God or men, which are of a moral nature, and for the good of civil society: or as a busybody in other men's matters; or as a bishop in another man's diocese; that concerns himself in things he has nothing to do with, and neglects his own affairs, and lives in idleness, and upon the spoil of others; or takes upon him to manage, direct, order, and command other men's servants, or persons that do not belong to him, to do his business, or whatsoever he pleases. The Vulgate Latin version renders it, a desirer of other's goods; and the Ethiopic version, a covetous desirer of other's things; and so is led on by an insatiable thirst for them, to obtain them in an evil way, either by secret fraud, or open violence and oppression. To suffer in any such cases is scandalous and dishonourable, and unbecoming the character of a Christian. This last clause is left out in the Syriac version.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-19 - By
    patience and fortitude in suffering, by dependence on the promise of God, and keeping to the word the Holy Spirit hath revealed, the Holy Spirit is glorified; but by the contempt and reproaches cast upo believers, he is evil spoken of, and is blasphemed. One would thin such cautions as these were needless to Christians. But their enemie falsely charged them with foul crimes. And even the best of men need to be warned against the worst of sins. There is no comfort in sufferings when we bring them upon ourselves by our own sin and folly. A time of universal calamity was at hand, as foretold by our Saviour, Mt 24:9 10. And if such things befall in this life, how awful will the day of judgment be! It is true that the righteous are scarcely saved; eve those who endeavour to walk uprightly in the ways of God. This does no mean that the purpose and performance of God are uncertain, but onl the great difficulties and hard encounters in the way; that they go through so many temptations and tribulations, so many fightings withou and fears within. Yet all outward difficulties would be as nothing were it not for lusts and corruptions within. These are the worst clog and troubles. And if the way of the righteous be so hard, then how har shall be the end of the ungodly sinner, who walks in sin with delight and thinks the righteous is a fool for all his pains! The only way to keep the soul well, is, to commit it to God by prayer, and patien perseverance in well-doing. He will overrule all to the final advantag of the believer __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15. A
    busybody in other men's matters (allotrioepiskopov). Only here in New Testament. Lit., the overseer of another's matters. One who usurps authority in matters not within his province. Rev., meddler. Compare Luke xii. 13, 14; 1 Thess. iv. 11; 2 Thess. iii. 11. It may refer to the officious interference of Christians in the affairs of their Gentile neighbors, through excess of zeal to conform them to the Christian standard.
