1 Peter 1:18 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Ye were redeemed (ἐλυτρώθητε)

The verb occurs only in two other passages, Luke 24:21; Titus 2:14. It carries the idea of a ransom-price (λύτρον, from λύω, to loose).

With silver or gold (ἀργυρίῳ ἢ χρυσίῳ)

Lit., with silver or gold money; the words meaning, respectively, a small coin of silver or of gold.

Conversation

Rev., manner of life. See on 1 Peter 1:15.

Received by tradition from your fathers (πατροπαραδότου)

A clumsy translation; improved by Rev., handed down from your fathers. The word is peculiar to Peter.
