1 Peter 4

CEB 1 Therefore, since Christ suffered as a human, you should also arm yourselves with his way of thinking. This is because whoever suffers is finished with sin. NRS 1 Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same intention (for whoever has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin), CEB 2 As a result, they don't live the rest of their human lives in ways determined by human desires but in ways determined by God's will. NRS 2 so as to live for the rest of your earthly life no longer by human desires but by the will of God. CEB 3 You have wasted enough time doing what unbelievers desire—living in their unrestrained immorality and lust, their drunkenness and excessive feasting and wild parties, and their forbidden worship of idols. NRS 3 You have already spent enough time in doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless idolatry. CEB 4 They think it's strange that you don't join in these activities with the same flood of unrestrained wickedness. So they slander you. NRS 4 They are surprised that you no longer join them in the same excesses of dissipation, and so they blaspheme. CEB 5 They will have to reckon with the one who is ready to judge the living and the dead. NRS 5 But they will have to give an accounting to him who stands ready to judge the living and the dead. CEB 6 Indeed, this is the reason the good news was also preached to the dead. This happened so that, although they were judged as humans according to human standards, they could live by the Spirit according to divine standards. NRS 6 For this is the reason the gospel was proclaimed even to the dead, so that, though they had been judged in the flesh as everyone is judged, they might live in the spirit as God does. CEB 7 The end of everything has come. Therefore, be self-controlled and clearheaded so you can pray. NRS 7 The end of all things is near; therefore be serious and discipline yourselves for the sake of your prayers. CEB 8 Above all, show sincere love to each other, because love brings about the forgiveness of many sins. NRS 8 Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. CEB 9 Open your homes to each other without complaining. NRS 9 Be hospitable to one another without complaining. CEB 10 And serve each other according to the gift each person has received, as good managers of God's diverse gifts. NRS 10 Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. CEB 11 Whoever speaks should do so as those who speak God's word. Whoever serves should do so from the strength that God furnishes. Do this so that in everything God may be honored through Jesus Christ. To him be honor and power forever and always. Amen. NRS 11 Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. CEB 12 Dear friends, don't be surprised about the fiery trials that have come among you to test you. These are not strange happenings. NRS 12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. CEB 13 Instead, rejoice as you share Christ's suffering. You share his suffering now so that you may also have overwhelming joy when his glory is revealed. NRS 13 But rejoice insofar as you are sharing Christ's sufferings, so that you may also be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed. CEB 14 If you are mocked because of Christ's name, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory—indeed, the Spirit of God—rests on you. NRS 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory, which is the Spirit of God, is resting on you. CEB 15 Now none of you should suffer as a murderer or thief or evildoer or rebel. NRS 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, a criminal, or even as a mischief maker. CEB 16 But don't be ashamed if you suffer as one who belongs to Christ. Rather, honor God as you bear Christ's name. Give honor to God, NRS 16 Yet if any of you suffers as a Christian, do not consider it a disgrace, but glorify God because you bear this name. CEB 17 because it's time for judgment to begin with God's own household. But if judgment starts with us, what will happen to those who refuse to believe God's good news? NRS 17 For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; if it begins with us, what will be the end for those who do not obey the gospel of God? CEB 18 If the righteous are barely rescued, what will happen to the godless and sinful? NRS 18 And "If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinners?" CEB 19 So then, those who suffer because they follow God's will should commit their lives to a trustworthy creator by doing what is right. NRS 19 Therefore, let those suffering in accordance with God's will entrust themselves to a faithful Creator, while continuing to do good.
