14If you are revileda1for the name of Christ, 2you are blessed, 3because the Spirit of glory and of Godrests on you.
15Make sure that 4none of you suffers as a murderer, orthief, orevildoer, or a b5troublesomemeddler;
but if anyone suffers as a 6Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to 7glorifyGod in thisname.
For it is time for judgment8to begincwith 9the household of God; and if it 10begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those11who do not obey the 12gospel of God?
1813AND IF IT IS WITH DIFFICULTY THAT THE RIGHTEOUS IS SAVED, dWHAT WILL BECOME OF THE 14GODLESSMAN AND THE SINNER?
19Therefore, thosealso who sufferaccording to 15the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithfulCreator in doingwhat is right.
