1 Peter 4:11

Context
4:11 Whoever speaks, let it be with 1  God’s words. 2  Whoever serves, do so with the strength 3  that God supplies, so that in everything God will be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong 4  the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4:14

Context
4:14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory, 5  who is the Spirit of God, 6  rests 7  on you.

1 tn Grk “if anyone speaks – as God’s words.”

2 tn Or “oracles.”

3 tn Grk “if anyone serves – with strength…”

4 tn Grk “is/are.”

5 tc Many mss, some of them important and early ([א] A P 33 81 323 945 1241 1739 pm bo), add καὶ δυνάμεως (kai dunamew"; “and of power”) here. The shorter reading is supported by Ì72 B K L Ψ 049 pm). Although the evidence is evenly divided, the longer reading looks to be an explanatory or liturgical expansion on the text and for this reason should be considered secondary.

6 tn Grk “the Spirit of glory and of God.”

7 sn A quotation taken from Isa 11:2.
