彼前2:19-23

倘若人為叫良心對得住神,就忍受冤屈的苦楚,這是可喜愛的。

你們若因犯罪受責打,能忍耐,有甚麼可誇的呢?

但你們若因行善受苦,能忍耐,這在神看是可喜愛的。

你們蒙召原是為此;因為基督也為你們受過苦,給你們留下榜樣,

叫你們跟隨他的腳蹤行。

他並沒有犯罪,口堣]沒有詭詐。

他被罵不還口;受害不說威嚇的話,只將自己交託那按公義審判人的主。

For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering

because he is conscious of God.

But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it?

But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example,

that you should follow in his steps.

"He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth."

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate;

when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead,

he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

 

彼前4:12-15

親愛的弟兄啊,有火煉的試驗臨到你們,不要以為奇怪(似乎是遭遇非常的事)

倒要歡喜;因為你們是與基督一同受苦,

使你們在他榮耀顯現的時候,也可以歡喜快樂。

你們若是為基督的名受辱罵,便是有福的;因為神榮耀的靈常住在你們身上。

你們中間卻不可有人因為殺人、偷竊、作惡、好管閒事而受苦。

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering,

as though something strange were happening to you.

But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ,

so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed,

for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.

If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal,

or even as a meddler.
