a pure.
 This places us in the most intimate of relationships with the rest of the redeemed: objects of the same love, washed by the same precious blood, redeemed by the same Lamb, they become-to those whose hearts are purified by the reception of the truth through the Spirit-the objects of a tender brotherly love, a love unfeigned. (1 Peter 1 by J.N. Darby)
 Soul and spirit however are so closely joined, that but one of the two generally is named, as here. Only the one which is named in scripture, though not excluding the other, is always strictly correct and has its proper force. (1 Peter 1:22 by W. Kelly)
 the call to love one another is manifestly grounded on the assurance that they had purified their souls already; which involves the responsibility of continual consistency with this state of purity, and of self-judgment in case of failure. It is the regular Christian standing, which may be varied in the form of expression; but it meets us substantially in every apostolic Epistle. (1 Peter 1:22 by W. Kelly)

WK Translation Notes

the truth ^... pure: The most ancient and best MSS. do not read διὰ πνεύματος "through the Spirit," the Latins strangely giving charitatis "of love," instead of veritatis "the truth" which is certainly right. A few omit καθαρᾶς "pure." (Epist. of Peter, p.100)
pure: the omission of "pure" rests on A B and the Vulgate, a feeble basis as against אp.m. C K L P, all the cursives, and the mass of ancient versions and ecclesiastical writers, one perhaps excepted. (Bible Treasury 14:79)
truth ^: "by the Spirit" is an addition without due warrant (Bible Treasury 14:79)
