E. Rejoicing in Sharing the Sufferings of Christ
12 Beloved, do not think that the 1afiery ordeal among you, coming to you for a 2btrial, is 3strange, as if it were a 3strange thing happening to you;
13 But inasmuch as you share in the asufferings of Christ, brejoice, so that also at the crevelation of His glory you may rejoice dexultingly.
14 If you are areproached in the 1name of bChrist, you are cblessed, because 2the Spirit of glory and of God 3rests upon you.
15 For let none of you asuffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a 1bmeddler into others' affairs;
16 But if as a 1aChristian, let him not be bashamed, but let him 2cglorify God in this name.
17 For it is time for the 1ajudgment to bbegin from the 2house of God; and if cfirst from us, 3what will be the end of those who 4ddisobey the gospel of God?
18 And if the 1righteous man is 2saved only with difficulty, where will the aungodly and the sinner 3appear?
19 So then let those 1also who asuffer according to the 2bwill of God 3ccommit their 4souls in 5dwell-doing to a faithful 6eCreator.
