    Hospedaos amorosamente los unos a los otros sin murmuraciones.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 4:9

    Verse 9. Use
    hospitality] Be ever ready to divide your bread with the hungry, and to succour the stranger. See on Heb. xiii. 2.

    Without grudging.] aneu gaggusmwn? Without grumblings. Do nothing merely because it is commanded, but do it from love to God and man; then it will be without grumbling.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. Use hospitality , etc.] Or, be lovers of strangers, as the phrase may be rendered, and as it is in the Syriac version; that is, such as are of a distant country, or come from afar, and are unknown by face, especially good men, that are obliged to remove from their native country for the sake of religion, or by one providence or another; and these are to be loved: and love is to be shown them, both negatively, by not vexing them, and making them uneasy in body or mind; by not oppressing them by violence and injustice, and making any exorbitant demands upon them; or by not perverting judgment with respect to them; and positively, by directing, counselling, and advising them, and if need be, by giving them food, and raiment, and lodging: and it is what men have been led to by the very light of nature, as in the instances of Jethro the Midianite towards Moses, and the inhabitants of Melita with Publius, the chief man of the island, towards the Apostle Paul and his company; and is what God enjoined the Israelites by divers laws, since they had been strangers in the land of Egypt; and various are the exhortations to it in the New Testament; and some, by the practice of it, have entertained angels unawares, as Abraham, and Lot; and even Christ himself, as the two disciples travelling to Emmaus; and is what is highly regarded and commended by Christ, and the contrary is resented by him; and therefore it ought to be used and practised frequently; saints should inure themselves to it, be given to it, pursue and follow hard after it; (see Gill on Romans 12:13), (see Gill on Hebrews 13:2). The apostle adds here, one to another; which clause is left out in the Syriac and Ethiopic versions; the reason of which may be, because the authors of these versions might think this not so consistent with the duty exhorted to, since the objects of it are strangers; but it should be observed, that so were these persons the apostle writes to; (see 1 Peter 1:1), they were scattered about, and lived in different countries, and were strangers to one another, and therefore the clause is pertinent enough; and the sense is, that as they were in foreign countries, and at a distance one from another, whenever by any providence they were brought where each other were, that they would be hospitable to one another: and that without grudging : food, raiment, and lodging, or what they want, whether direction or advice, thinking it no trouble to give them either; or without murmurings, as it may be rendered, as if they were burdensome, and they were too chargeable to them, and their stay too long; and without complaints of them, finding fault, and picking quarrels with them, and laying charges against them, in order to get rid of them. This is one branch of charity before recommended.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-11 - The
    destruction of the Jewish church and nation, foretold by ou Saviour, was very near. And the speedy approach of death and judgmen concerns all, to which these words naturally lead our minds. Ou approaching end, is a powerful argument to make us sober in all worldl matters, and earnest in religion. There are so many things amiss it all, that unless love covers, excuses, and forgives in others, the mistakes and faults for which every one needs the forbearance of others, Satan will prevail to stir up divisions and discords. But we are not to suppose that charity will cover or make amends for the sin of those who exercise it, so as to induce God to forgive them. The nature of a Christian's work, which is high work and hard work, the goodness of the Master, and the excellence of the reward, all requir that our endeavours should be serious and earnest. And in all the duties and services of life, we should aim at the glory of God as ou chief end. He is a miserable, unsettled wretch, who cleaves to himself and forgets God; is only perplexed about his credit, and gain, and bas ends, which are often broken, and which, when he attains, both he an they must shortly perish together. But he who has given up himself an his all to God, may say confidently that the Lord is his portion; an nothing but glory through Christ Jesus, is solid and lasting; tha abideth for ever.
