But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters. 1 Peter 4:15

Peter had just spoken of receiving reproach in the name of Christ, and when it occurs, as he said, “on your part He is glorified.” Now as a means of explaining that, he cites the words of this verse by saying, “But let none of you suffer.”

The Greek reads, “For let none of you suffer as a…,” which is followed by several negatives.Read the rest

Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 1 Peter 4:12

Peter now returns, once again, to the idea of suffering and trials. In doing so, he again uses the word translated as “beloved” as he did in verse 2:11.Read the rest
