20 But what credit is there if you are patient when beaten for doing wrong? But if you are patient when you suffer for doing what is good, this is a grace before God.
14 But even if you should suffer because of righteousness, blessed are you. Do not be afraid or terrified with fear of them,
14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.(A)
