The apostle describes the persons to whom he writes, and salutes them (ver. 1, 2), blesses God for their regeneration to a lively hope of eternal salvation (ver. 3-5), in the hope of this salvation he shows they had great cause of rejoicing, though for a little while they were in heaviness and affliction, for the trial of their faith, which would produce joy unspeakable and full of glory, ver. 6-9. This is that salvation which the ancient prophets foretold and the angels desire to look into, ver. 10-12. He exhorts them to sobriety and holiness, which he presses from the consideration of the blood of Jesus, the invaluable price of man's redemption (ver. 13-21), and to brotherly love, from the consideration of their regeneration, and the excellency of their spiritual state, ver. 22-25.
