    Definitions for 2 Peter 1:2

    Grace - Kindness; favor.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Peter 1:2

    Grace - God's favor; peace - the effects of that favor in the communication of spiritual and temporal blessings.

    Through the knowledge of God - Εν επιγνωσει· By the acknowledging of God, and of Jesus our Lord. For those who acknowledge him in all their ways, he will direct their steps. Those who know Christ; and do not acknowledge him before men, can get no multiplication of grace and peace.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Peter 1:2

    Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord - That is, grace and peace abound to us, or may be expected to be conferred on us abundantly, if we have a true knowledge of God and of the Saviour. Such a knowledge constitutes true religion: for in that we find "grace" - the grace that pardons and sanctifies; and "peace" - peace of conscience, reconciliation with God, and calmness in the trials of life. See the notes at John 17:3.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Peter 1:2
