This passage concludes the section in this letter dealing with the theme of appropriate Christian conduct. Peter began in 2:12 with a command for believers to keep their conduct honorable, and illustrated how that would practically look like as citizens of society (2:13-17), as servants in servant-master relationships (2:18-25), and within marrage (3:1-7). Here Peter ends with a description of how all Christians ought to behave, along with the motivation for having such behavior. vv. 8-9 "Finally" indicates that this is the final part of this section within 1 Peter. "all of you" suggests that these commands apply to all Christians. The behaviors which Christians ought to have are mentioned in v8, as well as in v9 where Christians are told to bless in order that they may receive a blessing in return. vv. 10-12 Three things are listed (10b-11b) which Christians who desire to be blessed should follow (i.e. IF you want to receive blessings, THEN do these things). The reason for adopting such behavior is given in v12; God blesses the righteous and is against those who do evil. May we all seek to conduct ourselves in a manner which brings glory to God and pleases him.
