1 Peter 4
1 Peter 4:2

1 Peter 4:3-5

1 Peter 4:6
Our departed brethren heard the gospel to this end, that, though condemned to die by their cruel persecutors, they might win the immortal crown, and glorify God as his witnesses.
1 Peter 4:8

“‘Tis gentle, delicate, and kind
To faults compassionate or blind.”
