A Textual Commentary On 1 Peter 2:2

(a) The copies of greatest authority have long read, εἰς σωτηρίαν : in the more recent ones, an hiatus has been introduced, the eye of one or two copyists having glided from εἰς to εἴπερ in the next verse.
(Johann Albrecht Bengel, Gnomon 5, p53)

(b) “In many MSS., Versions, and Fathers is added εἰς σωτηρίαν ; which reading is adopted by almost all recent Critics. Yet, though it is well supported, I cannot but suspect it (with Mill and Wolf) to be a gloss ; since for its omission in so many MSS. no reason can be imagined; but its addition is easily accounted for. Wolf moreover thinks, that, had the Apostle chose to add any thing further, he would have written εἰς ἄνδρα τέλειον ; as Eph. 4.13.”
(S. T. Bloomfield, Recensio Synoptica Annotationis Sacrae Being A Critical Digest & Synoptical Arrangement Of The Annotations On The New Testament – Vol. 8, 1828, p. 650-651)

(c) “The words εἰς σωτηρίαν are undoubtedly genuine; see Tischendorf’s note.”
(Charles Bigg, A Critical & Exegetical Commentary On The Epistles Of St Peter & St Jude, 1905, p. 126)
