1 Peter 4:12-14

Context

4:12 Dear friends, do not be astonished 1  that a trial by fire is occurring among you, 2  as though something strange were happening to you. 4:13 But rejoice in the degree that you have shared in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed 3  you may also rejoice and be glad. 4  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 Or “do not be surprised, taken aback.” The same verb occurs in 4:4.

2 tn Grk “at the burning among you, occurring to you for testing.”

3 tn Grk “in the revelation of his glory.”

4 tn The verb “be glad” is used also in 1:6 and 1:8. The verbs of v. 13b are used together in Matt 5:12 and Rev 19:7.

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.
