CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:19 And we - St. Peter here speaks in the name of all Christians.

2 Corinthians 4:6
For God, who said, "Let there be light in the darkness," has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished.
1 Peter 1:10
