1 tn The verb is implied by the context but not expressed; Grk “but if as a Christian.”
2 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.
3 tn Grk “in this name.”
