Passage: 1 Peter 3:12 - 1 Peter 4:9
12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye; and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; and be ready always to give an answer with meekness and fear to every man that asketh of you a reason for the hope that is in you:
16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conduct in Christ.
17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
18 For Christ also once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit, that he might bring us to God.
19 For which cause also, he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
20 Some of whom were disobedient in the days of Noah, while the long-suffering of God waited, while the ark was preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us, (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ;
22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
1 Peter 4
Intro The gospel preached to the dead -- Of persecution.
1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind;
2 For you who have suffered in the flesh should cease from sin, that you no longer the rest of your time in the flesh, should live to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of life may suffice to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when ye walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries;
4 Wherein they speak evil of you, thinking it strange that you run not with them to the same excess of riot;
5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6 Because of this, is the gospel preached to them who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live in the spirit according to the will of God.
7 But to you, the end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves; for charity preventeth a multitude of sins.
9 Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
