1214Beloved, do not be surprised at the 15fieryordealamong you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strangething were happening to you;
but to the degree that you 16share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the 17revelation of His glory18you may rejoice with exultation.
14If you are revilede19for the name of Christ, 20you are blessed, 21because the Spirit of glory and of Godrests on you.
15Make sure that 22none of you suffers as a murderer, orthief, orevildoer, or a f23troublesomemeddler;
but if anyone suffers as a 24Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to 25glorifyGod in thisname.
For it is time for judgment26to begingwith 27the household of God; and if it 28begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those29who do not obey the 30gospel of God?
