1 Peter 4:12

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.

1 Peter 4:16

Context
4:16 But if you suffer as a Christian, 3  do not be ashamed, but glorify 4  God that you bear such a name. 5 

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 The verb is implied by the context but not expressed; Grk “but if as a Christian.”

4 tn These are third-person imperatives in Greek (“if [one of you suffers] as a Christian, let him not be ashamed…let him glorify”), but have been translated as second-person verbs since this is smoother English idiom.

5 tn Grk “in this name.”
