Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore for Christ suffered in flesh, be ye also armed by the same thinking; for he that suffered in flesh ceased from sins, 1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin.
2 that that is left now of time in flesh live not now to the desires of men, but to the will of God. [that he live not now to the desires of men, but to the will of God, that that is more of time in flesh.] 2 As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.
3 For the time that is passed [Soothly the time passed] is enough to the will of heathen men to be ended, which walked in lecheries, and lusts, in much drinking of wine, in unmeasurable eatings [in oft eatings], and drinkings, and unleaveful worshipping of maumets [and unleaveful worshippings of idols]. 3 For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do--living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.
4 In which now they be astonished, in which thing they wonder, for ye run not together into the same confusion of lechery, and blaspheme [blaspheming]. 4 They think it strange that you do not plunge with them into the same flood of dissipation, and they heap abuse on you.
5 And they shall give reason to him, that is ready to deem the quick and the dead. 5 But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
6 For why for this thing it is preached also to dead men, that they be deemed by men in flesh, and that they live by God in spirit. [+For why for this thing to dead men it is evangelized also, that they be deemed soothly after men in flesh, but that they live after God in spirit.] 6 For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to men in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit.
7 For the end of all things shall approach [Forsooth the end of all things shall nigh]. Therefore be ye prudent, and wake ye in prayers; 7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.
8 before all things have ye charity each to other in yourselves always [all-gates] lasting; for charity covereth the multitude of sins. 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
9 Hold ye hospitality together without grudging [without grutching]; 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
10 each man as he hath received grace, ministering it into each other [ministering each to other], as good dispensers of the manifold grace of God. 10 Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
11 If any man speaketh, speak he as the words of God; if any man ministereth, as of the virtue which God ministereth; that God be honoured in all things by Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom is glory and lordship into worlds of worlds. Amen. 11 If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
12 Most dear brethren, do not ye go in pilgrimage in fervor, that is made to you to temptation [Most dear, do not ye go in pilgrimage in fervor, that is made to you into temptation], as if any new thing befall to you; 12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.
13 but commune ye with the passions of Christ, and have ye joy, that also ye be glad, and have joy in the revelation of his glory. [but ye communing to the passions of Christ, have joy, that and ye gladding withoutforth, have joy in the revelation of his glory.] 13 But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
14 If ye be despised for the name of Christ, ye shall be blessed; for that that is of the honour, and of the glory, and of the virtue of God, and the Spirit that is his, shall rest on you [for that that is of the glory and virtue of God, and the Spirit that is his, resteth on you]. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
15 But no man of you suffer as a manslayer, either a thief, either curser, either a desirer of other men's goods; [Forsooth no man of you suffer as a manslayer, or a thief, or curser, or desirer of other men's things;] 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler.
16 but if he suffer as a christian man, shame he not, but glorify he God in this name. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.
17 For time is, that doom begin at God's house [For time is, that doom begin of God's house]; and if it begin first at us, what end shall be of them, that believe not to the gospel? 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
18 And if a just man scarcely shall be saved, where shall the unfaithful man and the sinner appear [where shall the unpious man and sinner appear]? 18 And, "If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?"
19 Therefore and they that suffer by the will of God [And so, and they that suffer after the will of God], betake their souls in good deeds to the faithful maker of nought. 19 So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
