The apostle Peter is eager to help Christians thrive in their relationships with each other (1 Peter 3:8-12). After considering some very important relationships in 1 Peter 2:11 to 3:7 (Christians and pagans, Christians and governments, slaves and masters, husbands and wives), Peter presents some practical instructions to help believers live in harmony with each other in 1 Peter 3:8-12. In order to strengthen his case, he quotes several verses from Psalm 34. Consider reading the whole Psalm. It’s an acrostic psalm with 22 verses – one for each Hebrew letter.
