and.
the grace.
 The unbelieving Jews sought to solve the difficulty by the fiction of two Messiahs: one the son of Joseph, of the tribe of Ephraim; the other the son of David, of the tribe of Judah; the first, to contend and suffer death; the second, to conquer and reign gloriously and forever. (1 Peter 1:10 by W. Kelly)
 they looked on to the latter day as the goal of their hopes, when Messiah should establish the salvation fully and forever. How clearly it is "grace," not of works whereof flesh might glory. (1 Peter 1:8-9 by W. Kelly)
 Who can be surprised that discerns the Saviour suffering, and exalted, in Isa. 53 where we have the fullest and clearest witness to Him and His work, though the expression of "save" or salvation there occurs not. But many other words point to that truth and the meritorious and efficacious cause, as in Isa. 53:5,6,8,10-11,12. In the seventh or last part we have its express and abundant mention, as in Isa. 59:1,11,16-17; 60:18; 61:10; 62:1; 64:5. In Jeremiah it is enough to refer to Jer. 25:20; 33:10-11; 46:27; in Ezek. 34:22; 36:29; 37:23; Hos. 1:7; Zeph. 3:17, 19; Zech. 8:7, 13; 9:16; 10:6; 12:7. Only it would be a mistake to imagine that other prophets did not predict the same thing in other words. (1 Peter 1:10 by W. Kelly)
 For what if the mass of the Jews were without faith? Their unbelief did not make of none effect the faith of God. Those who submit to His righteousness in Christ reap the blessing. (1 Peter 1:10 by W. Kelly)
 No honor in prophesying saved its instruments from seeking and searching earnestly to understand what was given them to predict out of the fullness which is in God. Dependence is and has ever been called for, with confidence in His goodness and His tender consideration of our own ignorance and weakness. But the gift of His word encourages us to wait on Him for understanding it as far as pleases Him. (1 Peter 1:10 by W. Kelly)
 The Apostle goes on to develop the three successive steps of the revelation of this grace of salvation-the full and entire deliverance from the consequences, the fruits and the misery of sin: --the prophecies; --the testimony of the Holy Spirit sent down from heaven; --the manifestation of Jesus Christ Himself, when the deliverance that had been already announced should be fully accomplished. (1 Peter 1 by J.N. Darby)
 {v.10-12} The Spirit in them testified through them, and He was so really the source of their utterances that they had to search diligently their own words and inquire as to their real force, only to discover that their full meaning was beyond the apprehension of the age in which they lived. (1 Peter 1 by F.B. Hole)

^ prophets: It is not "the" prophets as a body, but persons so characterized. Hence the article follows, "that" prophesied concerning the grace that was destined for those that now believe. Prophetic character is all the more brought into prominence by omitting the article before προφῆται. Class is in view rather than the persons as an entire and definite object before us. (Epist. of Peter, p.43)
^ prophets: it should be "prophets," not "the" prophets, as in the Authorized and Revised Versions, not the class viewed in their totality, but persons coming under that category. (Bible Treasury 14:79)
