1 Peter 5:10-11
5:10 And, after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory in Christ 1 will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 2
5:11 To him belongs 3 the power forever. Amen.
1 tc ‡ A few important mss (א B 614 630 1505 pc) lack “Jesus” after “Christ,” while the majority include the name (Ì72 A P Ψ 33 1739 Ï latt). However, the inclusion is a natural and predictable expansion on the text. NA27 includes ᾿Ιησοῦ (Ihsou, “Jesus”) in brackets, indicating doubts as to its authenticity. .
2 tn The pronoun “you” is not used explicitly but is clearly implied by the Greek.
3 tn No verb is expressed here but the verb “is” or “belongs” is clearly implied. This doxology expresses a fact for which God should be glorified (as in 4:11), rather than a wish or prayer (“may power be to him”).
