11Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you [falsely] because of me.g12* Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.h Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
22You will be hated by all because of my name, but whoever endures to the end* will be saved.
1 Peter 4:12-16
12Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you.g13But rejoice to the extent that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed you may also rejoice exultantly.h14If you are insulted for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.i15But let no one among you be made to suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as an intriguer.16But whoever is made to suffer as a Christian should not be ashamed but glorify God because of the name.
1 Peter 2:11-12
11* Beloved, I urge you as aliens and sojourners* to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against the soul.j12Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that if they speak of you as evildoers, they may observe your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation.
