1 Peter 4:12-16

Thomson(i) 12 Beloved, be not surprized at the fiery trial among you, which is come upon you to try you, as if some strange thing had befallen you: 13 but inasmuch as you partake of the sufferings of the Christ, rejoice; that at the manifestation of his glory you may indeed rejoice with exceeding great joy. 14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ you are happy; because the spirit of the glory, even the spirit of God resteth on you. On their part indeed it is reviled, but on your part it is glorified. 15 For let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or a malefactor, or as a usurper of authority; 16 and if as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but glorify God in this respect.
