3:18 18 For also Christ once died for our sins, he just for unjust, that he should offer to God us [that he should offer us to God] , made dead in flesh, but made quick in Spirit. 18 Forasmuch as Christ hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, for to bring us to God, and was killed, as pertaining to {was slain after} the flesh: but was quickened in {after} the spirit. 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, and was put to death concerning the flesh, but was quickened by [in] the spirit. 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive by the Spirit:

3:20 20 which were sometime unbelieveful, when they abided the patience of God in the days of Noah, when the ship was made [when the ark, or ship, was made] , in which a few, that is to say, eight souls were made safe by water. 20 which were in time past disobedient, {believed not} when the long suffering of God abode exceeding patiently in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few (that is to say eight souls) were saved by water, 20 Which were in time passed disobedient, when once the long suffering of God abode in the days of Noah, while the Ark was preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved in the water. 20 Who at one time were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was preparing, in which few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
3:21 21 And so baptism of like form maketh us safe [The which thing and baptism of like form maketh us safe] ; not the putting away of the filths of flesh, but the asking of a good conscience in God, by the again-rising of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 which signifieth baptism that now saveth us, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but in that a good conscience consenteth to God, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 21 Whereof the baptism that now is, answering that figure, (which is not a putting away of the filth of the flesh, but a confident demanding which a good conscience maketh to God) saveth us also by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, [To the which also the figure that now saveth us, even Baptism agreeth (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but in that a good conscience maketh request to God) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,] 21 The like figure to which even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
3:22 22 that is in the right half of God, and swalloweth death [he swallowing death] , that we should be made heirs of everlasting life.

4:1 1 Therefore for Christ suffered in flesh, be ye also armed by the same thinking; for he that suffered in flesh ceased from sins, 1 Forasmuch as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he which suffereth in the flesh ceaseth from sin, 1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind, which is, that he which hath suffered in the flesh, hath ceased from sin, 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;
4:2 2 that that is left now of time in flesh live not now to the desires of men, but to the will of God. [that he live not now to the desires of men, but to the will of God, that that is more of time in flesh.] 2 that he henceforward should live as much time as remaineth in the flesh, not after the lusts of men: but after the will of God. 2 That he hence forward [henceforth] should live (as much time as remaineth in the flesh) not after the lusts of men, but after the will of God. 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.
4:3 3 For the time that is passed [Soothly the time passed] is enough to the will of heathen men to be ended, which walked in lecheries, and lusts, in much drinking of wine, in unmeasurable eatings [in oft eatings] , and drinkings, and unleaveful worshipping of maumets [and unleaveful worshippings of idols] . 3 For it is sufficient for us that we have spent the time that is past of the life, after the will of the gentiles, {Heythen} walking in wantonness lusts, drunkenness, in (excess of) eating, {glutony} (excess of) drinking, {riotous drinking} and in abominable idolatry. 3 For it is sufficient for us that we have spent the time past of the life, after the lust of the Gentiles, walking in wantonness, lusts, drunkenness, in gluttony, drinkings, and in abominable idolatries. 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, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries:
4:4 4 In which now they be astonished, in which thing they wonder, for ye run not together into the same confusion of lechery, and blaspheme [blaspheming] . 4 And it seemeth to them a strange thing that ye run not also with them unto the same excess of riot, and therefore speak they evil of you, 4 Wherein it seemeth to them strange, that ye run not with them unto the same excess of riot: therefore speak they evil of you, 4 In which they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you:
4:5 5 And they shall give reason to him, that is ready to deem the quick and the dead. 5 which shall give account [acomptes] to him that is ready to judge quick and dead. {is ready to judge the quick and the dead} 5 Which shall give accounts to him, that is ready to judge quick and dead. 5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the living and the dead.
4:6 6 For why for this thing it is preached also to dead men, that they be deemed by men in flesh, and that they live by God in spirit. [+For why for this thing to dead men it is evangelized also, that they be deemed soothly after men in flesh, but that they live after God in spirit.] 6 For unto this purpose verily was the gospel [gospell] preached unto the dead, that they should be judged after the manner of {judged like other} men in the flesh, but should live godly in the spirit. [that they should be condemned of men in the flesh, but should live before God in the spirit] 6 For unto this purpose was the Gospel preached also unto the dead, that they might be condemned, according to men in the flesh, but might live according to God in the spirit. 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.

Amen.
4:12 12 Most dear brethren, do not ye go in pilgrimage in fervor, that is made to you to temptation [Most dear, do not ye go in pilgrimage in fervor, that is made to you into temptation] , as if any new thing befall to you; 12 Dearly beloved, be not troubled in {marvel not at} this heat, which now is come among you to try you, as though some strange thing had happened unto you: 12 Dearly beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial, which is among you to prove you, as though some strange thing were come unto you: 12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you:
4:13 13 but commune ye with the passions of Christ, and have ye joy, that also ye be glad, and have joy in the revelation of his glory. [but ye communing to the passions of Christ, have joy, that and ye gladding withoutforth, have joy in the revelation of his glory.] 13 but rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's [Christes] passions, that when his glory appeareth, ye may be merry and glad. 13 But rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings, that when his glory shall appear, ye may be glad and rejoice. 13 But rejoice, seeing ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
