1 Peter 2:20

_ _ whatGreek, “what kind of.”

_ _ glory — what peculiar merit.

_ _ buffeted — the punishment of slaves, and suddenly inflicted [Bengel].

_ _ this is — Some oldest manuscripts read, “for.” Then the translation is, “But if when ... ye take it patiently (it is a glory), for this is acceptable.”

_ _ acceptableGreek, “thankworthy,” as in 1 Peter 2:19.
