    Clarke's Commentary on Jude 1:2

    Mercy unto you - For even the best have no merit, and must receive every blessing and grace in the way of mercy.

    Peace - With God and your consciences, love both to God and man, be multiplied - be unboundedly increased.

    Barnes' Notes on Jude 1:2

    Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied - This is not quite the form of salutation used by the other apostles, but it is one equally expressive of an earnest desire for their welfare. These things are mentioned as the choicest blessings which could be conferred on them: "mercy" - in the pardon of all their sins and acceptance with God; "peace" - with God, with their fellow-men, in their own consciences, and in the prospect of death; and "love" - to God, to the brethren, to all the world. What blessings are there which these do not include?
