8Aboveall, 1keepfervent in your love for oneanother, because2lovecovers a multitude of sins.
93Be hospitable to oneanotherwithout4complaint.
105As eachone has received a special gift, employ it in servingoneanother as good6stewards of the manifoldgrace of God.
117Whoeverspeaks, is to do so aas one who is speaking the 8utterances of God ; whoeverserves is to do so as one who is servingb9by the strengthwhichGodsupplies ; so that 10in allthingsGod may be glorifiedthroughJesusChrist, 11to whombelongs the glory and dominionforever and ever. Amen.
1212Beloved, do not be surprised at the 13fieryordealamong you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strangething were happening to you;
but to the degree that you 14share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the 15revelation of His glory16you may rejoice with exultation.
14If you are reviledc17for the name of Christ, 18you are blessed, 19because the Spirit of glory and of Godrests on you.
15Make sure that 20none of you suffers as a murderer, orthief, orevildoer, or a d21troublesomemeddler ;
but if anyone suffers as a 22Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to 23glorifyGod in thisname.
For it is time for judgment24to beginewith 25the household of God ; and if it 26begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those27who do not obey the 28gospel of God ?
1829AND IF IT IS WITH DIFFICULTY THAT THE RIGHTEOUS IS SAVED, fWHAT WILL BECOME OF THE 30GODLESSMAN AND THE SINNER ?
