1 Peter 4:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Commit (παρατιθέσθωσαν)

Give in charge as a deposit. Compare Luke 12:48; Acts 20:32; 1 Timothy 1:18. The word is used by Christ in commending his soul to God (Luke 23:46).

Well-doing (ἀγαθοποιίᾳ)

Only here in New Testament. Compare 1 Peter 2:14. The surrender to God is to be coupled with the active practice of good.
