1 Peter 2:20 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

What glory (ποῖον κλέος)

Lit., what kind of glory. This word for glory occurs nowhere else in the New Testament.

Buffeted (κολαφιζόμενοι)

See Matthew 26:67 : struck with the fist. This whole passage, 1 Peter 2:19-24, bears the mark of Peter's memories of the scene of Christ's last sufferings (see Introduction) - the blows of the servants, the scorn of the high-priest, the silent submission of Jesus, the cross, the stripes.
