Pristine Grace

1 Pet 4:1-19, (KJV)
1  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;
2  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.
3  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  Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5  Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6  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.
7  But 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 shall cover the multitude of sins.
9  Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
10  As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11  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.
12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13  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.
14  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.
15  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.
16  Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
17  For the time is come that judgment 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?
18  And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19  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.

1 Pet 4:1-19, (MKJV)
1  Therefore, Christ having suffered for us in the flesh, also you arm yourselves with the same thought, that he suffering in the flesh has been made to rest from sin,
2  in order no longer to live in the lusts of men, but in the will of God the remaining time in the flesh.
3  For the time of life which is past is enough for us to have worked out the will of the nations, having gone on in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, parties, carousings, and abominable idolatries.
4  In these things they are surprised, that you are not running with them into the same excess of riot, blaspheming.
5  But they shall give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
6  For to this end the gospel was preached also to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the Spirit.
7  But the end of all things has drawn near. Therefore be of sound mind, and be sensible to prayers.
8  And above all things have fervent love to yourselves, for love will cover a multitude of sins.
9  Be hospitable to one another, without grudging;
10  each one as he received a gift, ministering it to yourselves as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11  If anyone speaks, let it be as the words of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as of the ability which God gives, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ, to whom is the glory, and the might forever and ever. Amen.
12  Beloved, do not be astonished at the fiery trial which is to try you, as though a strange thing happened to you,
13  but rejoice according as you are partakers of Christ's suffering, so that when His glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14  If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of God and of glory rests on you. Truly according to them, He is blasphemed, but according to you He is glorified.
15  But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or a meddler in the affairs of others.
16  But if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God because of this.
17  For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
18  And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19  Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a faithful Creator.

1 Pet 4:1-19, (NASB)
1  Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
2  so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
3  For the time already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable idolatries.
4  In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you
5  but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
6  For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God.
7  The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.
8  Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
9  Be hospitable to one another without complaint.
10  As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11  Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
12  Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you;
13  but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation.
14  If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
15  Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler;
16  but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this name.
17  For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
18  And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner?
19  Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.

1 Pet 4:1-19, (LITV)
1  Therefore, Christ having suffered for us in the flesh, also you arm yourselves with the same thought, because he having suffered in the flesh has been made to rest from sin,
2  for him no longer to live in the lusts of men, but to live the remaining time in the flesh in the will of God.
3  For the time of life having passed is sufficient for us to have worked out the will of the nations, having gone on in wantonness, lusts, drunkenness, parties, carousings, and lawless idolatries;
4  in which they are surprised, you not running with them into the same overflow of unsavedness, blaspheming;
5  who will give account to Him having readiness to judge the living and dead.
6  For to this end also the gospel was preached to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but might live according to God in the Spirit.
7  But the end of all things has drawn near. Be of sound mind, then, and be sensible to prayers;
8  and above all things having fervent love to yourselves, "because love will cover a multitude of sins." Prov. 10:12
9  Be hospitable to one another without murmurings,
10  each one as he received a gift, ministering it to yourselves as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11  If anyone speaks, let it be as the words of God; if anyone ministers, as by strength which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ; to whom is the glory and the might to the ages of the ages. Amen.
12  Beloved, do not be astonished at the fiery trial happening among you for your testing, as if a surprise were occurring to you;
13  but according as you share the sufferings of Christ, rejoice; so that you may rejoice exultingly at the revelation of His glory.
14  If you are reviled in the name of Christ, you are blessed, because "the Spirit of God and of glory rests on you." Truly, according to them, He is blasphemed; but according to you, He is glorified. Isa. 11:2
15  For do not let any of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or as a meddler in the affairs of others.
16  But if one suffers as a Christian, do not let him be ashamed, but to glorify God in this respect.
17  Because the time has come to begin the judgment from the house of God; and if firstly from us, what will be the end of the ones disobeying the gospel of God?
18  And "if the righteous is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and sinner appear?" Proverbs 11:31
19  So as indeed the ones suffering according to God's will, as to a faithful Creator, let them commit their souls in well-doing.
