“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.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:14 If ye are reproached for Christ - Reproaches and cruel mockings were always one part of their sufferings. The Spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you - The same Spirit which was upon Christ, #Luke 4:18|. He is here termed, the Spirit of glory, conquering all reproach and shame, and the Spirit of God, whose Son, Jesus Christ is. On their part he is blasphemed, but on your part he is glorified - That is, while they are blaspheming Christ, you glorify him in the midst of your sufferings, #1Peter 4:16|.
1Pe 4:14 If ye are reproached for the name of Christ. Because you are a Christian. Happy [are ye]; for the Spirit of glory and of God. "Spirit" is not found in the Greek. The idea is that the sufferer for Christ is happy because the glory of Christ awaits him, and God's spirit is with him.
