1 Peter 4:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard)

Following Christ

1 Therefore, since Christ suffereda in the flesh,b arm yourselves also with the same resolvec-because the One who suffered in the fleshd has finished with sine f- 2 in order to live the remaining time in the flesh,g no longer for human desires,h but for God's will. 3 For there has already been enough time spent in doing the will of the pagans:i carrying on in unrestrained behavior, evil desires, drunkenness, orgies, carousing, and lawless idolatry.j 4 In regard to this, they are surprised that you don't plunge with them into the same floodk of dissipation-and they slander you. 5 They will give an account to the One who stands ready to judge the living and the dead.l 6 For this reason the gospel was also preached to [those who are now] dead, so that, although they might be judged by men in the fleshly realm,m they might live by God in the spiritual realm.n
