    Definitions for 1 Peter 5:14

    Amen - Dependable; faithful; certain.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Peter 5:14

    Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity - See the notes on Romans 16:16, and on 1 Corinthians 16:20 (note). In the above places the kiss is called a holy kiss; here, φιληματι αγαπης, a kiss of Love; i.e. as a mark of their love to each other, in order that misunderstandings might be prevented. But ten or twelve MSS., with the Syriac, Arabic, Armenian, and Vulgate, have ἁγιῳ, holy; salute one another with a Holy kiss. The difference is not great.

    Peace be with you all - May all prosperity, spiritual and temporal, be with all that are in Christ Jesus - at are truly converted to him, and live in his Spirit obedient to his will.

    Amen - Is wanting, as usual, in some of the principal MSS. and versions.
