1 Peter 4:4

Context
4:4 So 1  they are astonished 2  when you do not rush with them into the same flood of wickedness, and they vilify you. 3 

1 Peter 4:14

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

1 tn Grk “in/by which,” referring to the change of behavior described in v. 3. The unbelievers are astonished by the readers’ moral transformation. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

2 tn Or “are surprised, are taken aback.” The same verb occurs in 4:12.

3 tn Grk “blaspheming,” giving the result of their astonishment. Here the target of their “blasphemy/vilification” is not God but the Christian.

4 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.

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

6 sn A quotation taken from Isa 11:2.
