1 Peter 1:11; 1 Peter 1:18; 1 Peter 3:3; 1 Peter 3:9; 1 Peter 3:17; 1 Peter 4:15
Searching what , or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify , when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow .
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called , that ye should inherit a blessing .
For it is better, if the will of God be so , that ye suffer for well doing , than for evil doing .
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
