1 Peter 2:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Beloved (ἀγαπητοί)

A favorite term with Peter, occurring eight times in the epistles. See the phrase, our beloved. Barnabas and Paul, Acts 15:25, in the letter sent by the council at Jerusalem to the Gentile Christians, the account of which, doubtless, came from Peter. Compare our beloved brother Paul, 2 Peter 3:15.

Strangers (παροίκους)

Rev., sojourners. Compare 1 Peter 1:17, "the time of your sojourning (παροικίας)."

Which (αἵτινες)

The compound pronoun denotes a class, of that kind which, classifying all fleshly desires in one category.
