    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:9

    al cual resistid firmes en la fe, sabiendo que las mismas aflicciones han de ser cumplidas en la compaía de vuestros hermanos que estn en el mundo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 5:9

    Verse 9. Whom
    resist] Stand against him, antisthte. Though invulnerable, he is not unconquerable: the weakest follower of God can confound and overpower him, if he continue steadfast in the faith - believing on the Son of God, and walking uprightly before him. To a soul thus engaged he can do no damage.

    The same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren] It is the lot of all the disciples of Christ to suffer persecution. The brotherhood, adelfothv, the Christian Church, everywhere is exposed to the assaults of men and devils; you are persecuted by the heathen among whom ye live, and from among whom ye are gathered into the fold of Christ: but even those who profess the same faith with you, and who are resident among the Jews, (for so I think en kosmw, in the world, is here to be understood,) are also persecuted, both heathens and Jews being equally opposed to the pure and holy doctrines of the Gospel. Any man who has read the Greek Testament with any attention must have observed a vast number of places in which the word kosmov, which we translate world, means the Jewish people and the Jewish state, and nothing else.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. Whom resist , etc.] By no means give way to him, by indulging any sin, or yielding to any temptation, but oppose him, and stand against his wiles, his cunning and his power: steadfast in the faith ; both in the doctrine of faith, which Satan endeavours to remove from, or cause to stagger in; and in the grace of faith, exercising it on the promises of God, and his perfections, particularly his power and faithfulness concerned in them, and in the blood, righteousness, sacrifice, and person of Christ, which faith is capable of making use of, as a shield, to good purpose, against all the fiery darts of Satan; as also in a profession of faith, which, as it should be held fast without wavering, and which the devil is very busy to keep persons from making, or to cause them to drop it when they have made it, by violent suggestions, strong temptations, and a flood of reproaches and persecutions; all which should be disregarded: knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world ; and therefore should not be surprised and staggered by them, nor think them strange, but endure them without murmuring, and with patience and cheerfulness; since they are the same afflictions and trials which others have been exercised with in all ages: the same which the fraternity, or brotherhood, as the word signifies, (see 1 Peter 2:17) who stand in the same relation to God and Christ as they do, endure; yea, the same which Christ himself, who stands in this relation to them, has endured: and which must be expected while they are in the world; but this is the great mercy, that they are only endured in this world; there will be none in the world to come; they will be accomplished and finished here; and every believer has his measure, which must be filled up; and so has the whole of Christ, his church, and when they are fulfil they will be no more.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-9 -
    Humility preserves peace and order in all Christian churches an societies; pride disturbs them. Where God gives grace to be humble, he will give wisdom, faith, and holiness. To be humble, and subject to ou reconciled God, will bring greater comfort to the soul than the gratification of pride and ambition. But it is to be in due time; no in thy fancied time, but God's own wisely appointed time. Does he wait and wilt not thou? What difficulties will not the firm belief of his wisdom, power, and goodness get over! Then be humble under his hand Cast "all you care;" personal cares, family cares, cares for the present, and cares for the future, for yourselves, for others, for the church, on God. These are burdensome, and often very sinful, when the arise from unbelief and distrust, when they torture and distract the mind, unfit us for duties, and hinder our delight in the service of God. The remedy is, to cast our care upon God, and leave every event to his wise and gracious disposal. Firm belief that the Divine will an counsels are right, calms the spirit of a man. Truly the godly to often forget this, and fret themselves to no purpose. Refer all to God's disposal. The golden mines of all spiritual comfort and good ar wholly his, and the Spirit itself. Then, will he not furnish what is fit for us, if we humbly attend on him, and lay the care of providin for us, upon his wisdom and love? The whole design of Satan is to devour and destroy souls. He always is contriving whom he may insnar to eternal ruin. Our duty plainly is, to be sober; to govern both the outward and the inward man by the rules of temperance. To be vigilant suspicious of constant danger from this spiritual enemy, watchful an diligent to prevent his designs. Be stedfast, or solid, by faith. A ma cannot fight upon a quagmire, there is no standing without firm groun to tread upon; this faith alone furnishes. It lifts the soul to the firm advanced ground of the promises, and fixes it there. The consideration of what others suffer, is proper to encourage us to bea our share in any affliction; and in whatever form Satan assaults us, or by whatever means, we may know that our brethren experience the same.

    Greek Textus Receptus

    3739 αντιστητε 436 5628 στερεοι 4731 τη 3588 πιστει 4102 ειδοτες 1492 5761 τα 3588 αυτα 846 των 3588 παθηματων 3804 τη 3588 εν 1722 κοσμω 2889 υμων 5216 αδελφοτητι 81 επιτελεισθαι 2005 5745

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    Resist (antisthte). The Rev., very judiciously, substitutes withstand; resist having been already used in ver. 5 for ajntitassetai. Withstand is, moreover, the more accurate rendering; as the verb means rather to be firm against onset than to strive against it. With in withstand is the Saxon wid, against, which appears in the German wider.

    Steadfast (stereoi). Compare 2 Tim. ii. 19; and the kindred verb stereow, to strengthen (Acts iii. 7, 16; xvi. 5). Paul, in Col. ii. 5, uses a cognate noun, sterewma, evidently as a military metaphor: "Beholding your order (taxin, compare ajntitassetai, ver. 5) and your solid front or close phalanx" (sterewma). It might be difficult to find, on the whole, a better rendering than steadfast, yet it falls a little short of the meaning. Steadfast is Anglo-Saxon, stede, a place, and faest, fast; and hence means firm in its place; but stereoi conveys also the sense of compactness, compact solidity, and is appropriate, since a number of individuals are addressed and exhorted to withstand the onset of Satan as one compacted body. Stereov implies solidity in the very mass and body of the thing itself; steadfastness, mere holding of place. A rock is stereov, firm, solid; but a flexible weed with its tough root resisting all efforts to pull it up, may be steadfast. The exhortation is appropriate from Peter, the Rock. The same afflictions (ta auta twn paqhmatwn). Rev., better, sufferings. A very peculiar construction, occurring nowhere else in the New Testament. Lit., the same things of sufferings, emphasizing the idea of identity.

    Are accomplished (epiteleisqai). More correctly, are being accomplished. The present infinitive denotes something in process of accomplishment.

    Brethren (adelfothti). Lit., brotherhood. Only here and ch. ii. 17.
