1 Peter 3:17

Context
NETBible

For it is better to suffer for doing good, if God wills it, 1  than for doing evil.

XREF

Mt 26:39,42; Ac 21:14; 1Pe 3:14; 1Pe 4:19

NET © Notes

tn Grk “if the will of God should will it.” As in 3:14 the Greek construction here implies that suffering for doing good was not what God normally willed, even though it could happen, and in fact may have happened to some of the readers (cf. 4:4, 12-19).
