  1. 5:10 The Aramaic can be translated “slight suffering.” When we are in the midst of suffering, we are convinced it will never end. Peter reminds us that all of our trials are slight, brief, and temporary, but the glory we experience is eternal.
  2. 5:10 Some manuscripts have “Christ Jesus.” The calling of every believer is to share in the glory of God unveiled in Christ. See John 17:22–24; Rom. 8:18–21, 28–30; 2 Cor. 4:17; 2 Tim. 2:10.
  3. 5:10 Peter knows what he is talking about. After his ordeal of denying three times that he even knew Jesus, God restored him and made him strong. Jesus prophesied to Peter that he would “strengthen the faith of [his] brothers.” See Luke 22:31–32. Both of Peter’s letters are anointed by the Holy Spirit to give you strong faith that will not give up.
