14 If you are reviled 1for the name of Christ, 2you are blessed, 3because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
15 Make sure that 4none * of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a 5troublesome meddler;
16 but if anyone suffers as a 6Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to 7glorify God in this name.
