1 Peter 1:23 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Being born again - For being born of Abraham's seed will not avail to the entering of the kingdom of heaven.

Not of corruptible seed - By no human generation, or earthly means; but of incorruptible - a Divine and heavenly principle which is not liable to decay, nor to be affected by the changes and chances to which all sublunary things are exposed.

By the word of God - Δια λογου ζωντος Θεου· By the doctrine of the living God, which remaineth for ever; which doctrine shall never change, any more than the source shall whence it proceeds.

'As He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy, in all manner of conversation.'--1 Peter i. 15.
