1 Peter 3:14

Context
3:14 But in fact, if you happen to suffer 1  for doing what is right, 2  you are blessed. But do not be terrified of them 3  or be shaken. 4 

1 Peter 3:16

Context
3:16 Yet do it with courtesy and respect, 5  keeping a good conscience, so that those who slander your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame when they accuse you. 6 

1 sn The Greek construction here implies that such suffering was not the norm, even though it could happen, and in fact may well have happened to some of the readers (cf. 4:4, 12-19).

2 tn Grk “because of righteousness.”

3 tn Grk “do not fear their fear,” referring to those who cause their suffering. The phrase “their fear” may mean “what they fear” (subjective genitive), but in a situation of persecution it more likely means “fear of them” (objective genitive).

4 sn A quotation from Isa 8:12.

5 tn Grk “but with courtesy and respect,” continuing the command of v. 15. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

6 tn Grk “when you are spoken against.”
