1 G3767 For as much then G5547 as Christ G3958 has suffered G4561 for us in the flesh, G3695 arm G2532 yourselves likewise G846 with the same G1771 mind: G3958 for he that has suffered G4561 in the flesh G3973 has ceased G266 from sin;
2 G3371 That he no G3371 longer G980 should live G1954 the rest G5550 of his time G4561 in the flesh G1939 to the lusts G444 of men, G2307 but to the will G2316 of God.
3 G5550 For the time G3928 past G979 of our life G713 may suffice G2716 us to have worked G2307 the will G1484 of the Gentiles, G4198 when we walked G766 in lasciviousness, G1939 lusts, G3632 excess G3632 of wine, G2970 revelings, G4224 parties, G111 and abominable G1495 idolatries:
4 G1722 Wherein G3757 G3579 they think it strange G4936 that you run G846 not with them to the same G401 excess G810 of riot, G987 speaking G987 evil of you:
5 G3739 Who G591 shall give G3056 account G2093 to him that is ready G2919 to judge G2198 the quick G3498 and the dead.
6 G5124 For for this G2097 cause was the gospel G2097 preached G2532 also G3498 to them that are dead, G2919 that they might be judged G2596 according G444 to men G4561 in the flesh, G2198 but live G2596 according G2316 to God G4151 in the spirit.
7 G5056 But the end G3956 of all G1448 things is at G1448 hand: G3767 be you therefore G4993 sober, G3525 and watch G4335 to prayer.
8 G4253 And above G3956 all G2192 things have G1618 fervent G26 charity G1519 among G1438 yourselves: G26 for charity G2572 shall cover G4128 the multitude G266 of sins.
10 G1538 As every G2983 man has received G5486 the gift, G1247 even so minister G846 the same G1438 one G1438 to another, G2570 as good G3623 stewards G4164 of the manifold G5485 grace G2316 of God.
11 G1487 If G1536 any G2980 man speak, G2980 let him speak G3051 as the oracles G2316 of God; G1487 if G1536 any G1247 man minister, G2479 let him do it as of the ability G3739 which G2316 God G5524 gives: G2316 that God G3956 in all G1392 things may be glorified G1223 through G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G3739 to whom G1391 be praise G2904 and dominion G165 for ever G165 and ever. G281 Amen.
12 G27 Beloved, G3579 think it not strange G4012 concerning G4451 the fiery G4314 trial which is to try G3986 G3581 you, as though some strange G4819 thing happened to you:
13 G5463 But rejoice, G2526 inasmuch G2841 as you are partakers G5547 of Christ’s G3804 sufferings; G1722 that, when G3588 G1391 his glory G602 shall be revealed, G5463 you may be glad G2532 also G21 with exceeding joy.
14 G1487 If G3679 you be reproached G3686 for the name G5547 of Christ, G3107 happy G4151 are you; for the spirit G1391 of glory G2316 and of God G373 rests G2596 on G987 you: on their part he is evil G987 spoken G2596 of, but on G5209 your G1392 part he is glorified.
15 G3361 But let none G3958 of you suffer G5406 as a murderer, G2228 or G2812 as a thief, G2228 or G2555 as an evildoer, G2228 or G244 as a busybody G244 in other men’s matters.
16 G1161 Yet G1487 if G5546 any man suffer as a Christian, G153 let him not be ashamed; G1392 but let him glorify G2316 God G1722 on G5129 this G3313 behalf.
17 G2540 For the time G2917 is come that judgment G756 must begin G575 at G3624 the house G2316 of God: G1487 and if G4412 it first G575 begin at G5101 us, what G5056 shall the end G544 be of them that obey G2098 not the gospel G2316 of God?
18 G1487 And if G1342 the righteous G3433 scarcely G4982 be saved, G4226 where G765 shall the ungodly G268 and the sinner G5316 appear?
