1 Peter 4:14
“If ye be reproched for the Name of Christ, happie are ye, for the spirit of glory, and of God resteth vpon you: on their part hee is euill spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”
King James Version (KJV)
1 Peter 4:14
11. If any man speake, let him speake as the oracles of God: if any man minister, let him doe it as of the ability which God giueth, that God in all things may bee glorified through Iesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for euer and euer. Amen. 12. Beloued, thinke it not strange concerning the fiery triall, which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened vnto you. 13. But reioyce in as much as yee are partakers of Christes sufferings; that when his glory shalbe reueiled, ye may be glad also with exceeding ioy. 14. If ye be reproched for the Name of Christ, happie are ye, for the spirit of glory, and of God resteth vpon you: on their part hee is euill spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15. But let none of you suffer as a murtherer, or as a theefe, or as an euill doer, or as a busibody in other mens matters. 16. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorifie God on this behalfe. 17. For the time is come that iudgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at vs, what shall the ende bee of them that obey not the Gospel of God?
