  1. 1 Peter 2:20 V 19, note 1

15 Make sure that (A)none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a [a](B)troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a (C)Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to (D)glorify God in this name. 17 For it is time for judgment (E)to begin [b]with (F)the household of God; and if it (G)begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those (H)who do not obey the (I)gospel of God? 18 (J)And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, [c]what will become of the (K)godless man and the sinner? 19 Therefore, those also who suffer according to (L)the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.
