CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
For ye had compassion of me in my bonds (καὶ γὰρ τοῖς δεσμίοις συνεπαθήσατε)
Entirely wrong, following T.R. τοῖς δεσμοῖς μου. Rend. "ye had compassion on the prisoners." So Vulg. vinctis compassi estis. The corrupt reading has furnished one of the stock arguments for the Pauline authorship of the Epistle.
Took joyfully (μετὰ χαρᾶς προσεδέξασθε)
Of your goods (τῶν ὑπαρχόντων ὑμῶν)
The verb ὑπάρχεινmeans originally to begin, or begin to be; hence of anything that has begun to be, to come forth, be there; then simply to be. Accordingly the phrase ὑπάρχει μοὶ τι means there is something to me, I have something. See Acts 3:6; Acts 4:37; Acts 28:7. Hence τὰ ὑπάρχοντα things which are to one; possessions, goods. See Matthew 19:21; Matthew 24:27; Luke 8:3; Acts 4:32.
Knowing in yourselves that ye have, etc. (γινώσκοντες ἔχειν ἑαυτοὺς)
Rend. "knowing that ye yourselves have a better," etc. The A.V. follows T.R. ἐν ἑαυτοῖς. Ye yourselves in contrast with your spoilers.

in yourselves that ye have. or, that ye have in yourselves. or, for yourselves.

Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.
But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city.
Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.
For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.
1 Peter 1:4
to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,
