1 Peter 4:12-16
12
Dear friends, when the fiery ordeal arises among you to test you, don't be surprised by it, as if something unusual were happening to you.
13
Instead, as you share in the sufferings of the Messiah rejoice, so that you may also rejoice with great joy at the revelation of His glory.
14
If you are ridiculed for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
15
None of you, however, should suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a meddler.
16
But if [anyone suffers] as a Christian, he should not be ashamed, but should glorify God with that name.

12
When we heard this, both we and the local people begged him not to go up to Jerusalem.
13
Then Paul replied, "What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."
14
Since he would not be persuaded, we stopped talking and simply said, "The Lord's will be done!"

Then the priests and prophets said to the officials and all the people, "This man deserves the death sentence because he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your own ears."

13
So now, correct your ways and deeds and obey the voice of the LORD your God so that He might relent concerning the disaster that He warned about.
14
As for me, here I am in your hands; do to me what you think is good and right.

because by Him everything was created, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him.

You made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will reign on the earth.
11
Then I looked, and heard the voice of many angels around the throne, and also of the living creatures, and of the elders. Their number was countless thousands, plus thousands of thousands.
12
They said with a loud voice: The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!
13
I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them say: Blessing and honor and glory and dominion to the One seated on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!
14
The four living creatures said, "Amen," and the elders fell down and worshiped.
