4:1 Therefore for Christ suffered in flesh, be ye also armed by the same thinking; for he that suffered in flesh ceased from sins, Forasmuch as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he which suffereth in the flesh ceaseth from sin, Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind, which is that he which hath suffered in the flesh, hath ceased from sin, Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh, hath ceased from sin:
4:2 that he live not now to the desires of men, but to the will of God, that that is more of time in flesh. that he henceforward should live as much time as remaineth in the flesh, not after the lusts of men: but after the will of God. That he henceforward should live (as much time as remaineth in the flesh) not after the lusts of men, but after the will of God. That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh, to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
4:3 Soothly the time passed is enough to the will of heathen men to be ended, which walked in lecheries, and lusts, in much drinking of wine, in oft eatings, and drinkings, and unleaveful worshippings of idols. For it is sufficient for us that we have spent the time that is past of the life, after the will of the gentiles, walking in wantonness lusts, drunkenness, in eating, drinking, and in abominable idolatry. For it is sufficient for us that we have spent the time past of the life, after the lust of the Gentiles, walking in wantonness, lusts, drunkenness, in gluttony, drinkings and in abominable idolatries. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries.
4:4 In which now they be astonished, in which thing they wonder, for ye run not together into the same confusion of lechery, blaspheming. And it seemeth to them a strange thing that ye run not also with them unto the same excess of riot, and therefore speak they evil of you, Wherein it seemeth to them strange that ye run not with them unto the same excess of riot: therefore speak they evil of you. Wherein they think it strange, that you run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
4:5 And they shall give reason to him, that is ready to deem the quick and the dead. which shall give accompts to him that is ready to judge quick and dead. Which shall give accounts to him, that is ready to judge quick and dead. Who shall give accompt to him that is ready to judge the quick & the dead.
4:6 For why for this thing to dead men it is evangelized also, that they be deemed soothly after men in flesh, but that they live after God in spirit. For unto this purpose verily was the gospel preached unto the dead, that they should be judged after the manner of men in the flesh, but should live godly in the spirit. For unto this purpose was the Gospel preached also unto the dead, that they might be condemned, according to men, in the flesh, but might live according to God in the spirit. For, for this cause was the Gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
4:7 Forsooth the end of all things shall nigh. Therefore be ye prudent, and wake ye in prayers; The end of all things is at hand. Be ye therefore discreet, and sober, that ye may be apt to prayers. Now the end of all things is at hand. Be ye therefore sober, and watching in prayer. But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober and watch unto prayer.
4:8 before all things have ye charity each to other in yourselves all-gates lasting; for charity covereth the multitude of sins. But above all things have fervent love among you. For love covereth the multitude of sins. But above all things have fervent love among you: for love covereth the multitude of sins. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
4:9 Hold ye hospitality together without grutching; Be ye harborous, and that without grudging. Be ye harborous one to another, without grudging. Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
4:10 each man as he hath received grace, ministering each to other, as good dispensers of the manifold grace of God. As every man hath received the gift, minister the same one to another as good ministers of the manifold grace of god. Let every man as he hath received the gift, minister the same one to another, as good disposers of the manifold grace of God. As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
4:11 If any man speaketh, speak he as the words of God; if any man ministereth, as of the virtue which God ministereth; that God be honoured in all things by Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom is glory and lordship into worlds of worlds. Amen. If any man speak, let him talk as though he speak the words of god. If any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which god ministereth unto him. That god in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and while the world standeth Amen. If any man speak, let him talk as the words of God. If any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God ministereth, that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom is praise and dominion for ever, and ever, Amen. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God: if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth, that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
4:12 Most dear, do not ye go in pilgrimage in fervor, that is made to you into temptation, as if any new thing befall to you; Dearly beloved, be not troubled in this heat, which now is come among you to try you, as though some strange thing had happened unto you: Dearly beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial, which is among you to prove you, as though some strange thing were come unto you: Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial, which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you.
4:13 but ye communing to the passions of Christ, have joy, that and ye gladding withoutforth, have joy in the revelation of his glory. but rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s passions, that when his glory appeareth, ye may be merry and glad. But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings, that when his glory shall appear, ye may be glad and rejoice. But rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
4:14 If ye be despised for the name of Christ, ye shall be blessed; for that that is of the glory and virtue of God, and the Spirit that is his, resteth on you. Happy are ye when ye suffer rebuke for the name of Christ. For the spirit of glory and the spirit of god resteth upon you. On their part he is evil spoken of: but on your part he is glorified. If ye be railed upon for the Name of Christ, blessed are ye: for the Spirit of glory, and of God resteth upon you: which on their part is evil spoken of: but on your part is glorified. If ye be reproached for the Name of Christ, happy are ye, for the spirit of glory, and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
4:15 Forsooth no man of you suffer as a manslayer, or a thief, or curser, or desirer of other men’s things; See that none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.
4:16 but if he suffer as a christian man, shame he not, but glorify he God in this name. If any man suffer as a Christian man, let him not be ashamed: but let him glorify god on this behalf. But if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed: but let him glorify God in this behalf. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God on this behalf.
4:17 For time is, that doom begin of God’s house; and if it begin first at us, what end shall be of them, that believe not to the gospel? For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of god. If it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them which believe not the gospel of god? For the time is come, that judgement must begin at the house of God. If it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them which obey not the Gospel of God? For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?
4:18 And if a just man scarcely shall be saved, where shall the unpious man and sinner appear? And if the righteous scarcely be saved: where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
4:19 And so, and they that suffer after the will of God, betake their souls in good deeds to the faithful maker of nought. Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of god, commit their souls to him with well doing, as unto a faithful creator. Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God, commit their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. Wherefore, let them that suffer according to the will of God, commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
