13 And fwho is he that will harm you, dif ye be followers of that which is good? 14 gBut and hif ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, ihappy are ye: and jbe not afraid of their terror, neither kbe troubled; 15 But lsanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and mbe ready always to give nan answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with omeekness and ||pfear: 16 qHaving ra good conscience; sthat, whereas they speak evil of you, as of sevildoers, they may be ashamed that tfalsely accuse your good uconversation in Christ. 17 For it is better, if vthe will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18 For Christ also hath wonce xsuffered for sins, ythe just for the unjust, zthat he might bring us to God, abeing put to death bin the flesh, but cquickened dby the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and epreached unto the spirits fin prison; 20 Which sometime were gdisobedient, hwhen once the ilongsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, kwhile the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, leight msouls kwere saved by water. 21 The like nfigure whereunto even obaptism doth also now psave us (not the qputting away of the filth of the flesh, but rthe answer of sa good conscience toward God,) tby the resurrection of Jesus Christ: 22 Who is gone into heaven, and uis on the right hand of God; vangels and wxyauthorities and vwxpowers zbeing made subject unto him.

4 aForasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us ain the flesh, barm yourselves likewise with the same cmind: for dhe that hath suffered in the flesh ehath ceased from sin; fThat he no longer should live gthe rest of his time in the flesh to hthe lusts of men, but to ithe will of God. For the time past of our life jmay suffice us fkto have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in llasciviousness, mlusts, excess of wine, nrevellings, banquetings, and oabominable pidolatries: Wherein they qthink it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of rriot, sspeaking evil of you: Who shall tgive account to him that is ready uto judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also vto them that are dead, that they might be judged waccording to men in the flesh, but live xaccording to God in the spirit.

But ythe end of all things is at hand: zbe ye therefore sober, and awatch bunto prayer. And above all things chave dfervent charity among yourselves: efor fcharity ||shall cover the multitude of sins. gUse hospitality one to another hwithout grudging. 10 iAs every man hath received the jgift, even so minister the same one to another, as good kstewards of ithe manifold grace of God. 11 iIf any man speak, let him speak as lthe oracles of God; if any man mminister, let him do it nas of the ability which God giveth: that oGod in all things may be glorified pthrough Jesus Christ, qto whom be rpraise and rrdominion for ever and ever. Amen.

12 Beloved, sthink it not strange concerning tthe fiery trial uwhich is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But vrejoice, inasmuch as wye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, xwhen his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14 If ye be yreproached zfor the name of Christ, yahappy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: bon their part che is evil spoken of, but on your part dhe is glorified. 15 But alet none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as ban evildoer, or as ea busybody in other men’s matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as fa Christian, let him not be ashamed; but glet him glorify God hon this behalf. 17 For the time is come that ijudgment must begin at kthe house of God: and lif it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that mobey not the gospel of God? 18 And nif the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall othe ungodly and othe sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to pthe will of God qcommit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful rCreator.

5 aThe elders which are among you I exhort, who am balso an elder, and ca witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also da partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: eFeed the flock of God ||which is among you, ftaking the oversight thereof, gnot by constraint, but willingly; hnot for filthy lucre, but iof a ready mind; Neither as ||kbeing lords over lGod’s heritage, but ebeing mensamples to the flock. And when nthe chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall oreceive pa crown of glory qthat fadeth not away. Likewise, rye younger, submit yourselves unto athe elder. Yea, sall of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with sshumility: for tGod resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. uHumble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: vCasting all your care upon him; for whe careth for you. xBe sober, ybe vigilant; because your adversary zthe devil, aas a roaring lion, bwalketh about, seeking whom he may devour: cWhom resist dstedfast in the faith, knowing that ethe same afflictions fare accomplished in your gbrethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, hwho hath called us unto ihis eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered ka while, lmake you perfect, mstablish, strengthen, nsettle you. 11 oTo him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

12 By pSilvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as qI suppose, I have written rbriefly, exhorting, and stestifying that this is the true tgrace of God uwherein ye stand. 13 The church that is at vBabylon, welected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth xMarcus my son. 14 yGreet ye one another with a kiss of charity. zPeace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
