    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:19

    Y por eso los que son afligidos segn la voluntad de Dios, encomindenle sus almas, como a fiel Criador, haciendo bien.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 4:19

    Verse 19.
    Suffer according to the will of God] A man suffers according to the will of God who suffers for righteousness' sake; and who, being reviled, reviles not again.

    Commit the keeping of their souls] Place their lives confidently in his hand, who, being their Creator, will also be their preserver, and keep that safely which is committed to his trust. God is here represented as faithful, because he will always fulfill his promises, and withhold no good thing from them that walk uprightly.

    But they had no reason to hope that he would care for their lives and souls unless they continued in well-doing. He who is employed in God's work will have God's protection. The path of duty ever was, and ever will be, the only way of safety.

    1. THE apostle recommends fervent charity - unfeigned love both to God and man. It is well said of this grace that it is a universal virtue which ought to precede, accompany, and follow, all others. A charity which has God for its principle, and Jesus Christ for its pattern, never faileth. If our charity be extensive enough to cover all the defects of our neighbour in bearing with them; that of God is sufficient to cover all the sins of a sincere penitent by blotting them out. If we ought to be charitable to all, it is after the example of our heavenly Father, who is loving to every man, and hateth nothing that he has made.

    The difficulty of escaping the corruption that is in the world is great; and, consequently, the danger of losing our souls. In this great work, watchfulness, prayer; faith, and obedience, are indispensably necessary.

    He who does not walk with God here cannot see nor enjoy him hereafter.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God , etc.] This is the conclusion made from the foregoing premises; that seeing the state and condition of the saints in this world, at worst, and which is but for a time, is infinitely preferable to the dreadful state and condition of disobedient persons, ungodly men, and sinners, and which will endure to all eternity; they should not think strange of their sufferings, or complain of them, but patiently endure them; and especially when they consider that these are not the effects of chance, or merely owing to the malice and wickedness of men, or to any second cause only; but they are the will of God, are by his appointment, under his direction, and by his order, and for their good, and his own glory; and therefore it becomes them to commit the keeping of their souls [to him], in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator : and which is not only their duty, but their privilege: and the sense is, that when they are called to suffer for Christ, they should commit their cause to God, who, as he is the Creator, is the Governor of the universe, and will judge righteously; and when they are even called to lay down their lives for his sake, they shall not lose them; though their bodies are killed, they may and should commit their souls, when departing from their bodies, into the hands of God; as Stephen, the first martyr, committed his into the hands of Christ, in imitation of him; where he that made them, as he is able to keep them, will faithfully preserve them in happiness and glory, till the resurrection morn, when their bodies shall be raised and reunited to them: and this is to be performed, in well doing; for which they suffer, and in which they should continue to the last; not rendering evil for evil, but blessing; and in imitation of Christ, and his servant Stephen, pray for their worst enemies, and wish them all the good, and do them all the acts of kindness that lie in their power.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    Commit (paratiqesqwsan). Give in charge as a deposit. Compare Luke xii. 48; Acts xx. 32; 1 Tim. i. 18. The word is used by Christ in commending his soul to God (Luke xxiii. 46).

    Well-doing (agaqopoiia). Only here in New Testament. Compare ch. ii. 14. The surrender to God is to be coupled with the active practice of good.
