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.
