Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 4:14

_ _ forGreek, “IN the name of Christ,” namely, as Christians (1 Peter 4:16; 1 Peter 3:14, above); “in My name, because ye belong to Christ.” The emphasis lies on this: 1 Peter 4:15, “as a murderer, thief,” etc., stands in contrast. Let your suffering be on account of Christ, not on account of evil-doing (1 Peter 2:20).

_ _ reproachedReproach affects noble minds more than loss of goods, or even bodily sufferings.

_ _ the spirit ... upon you — the same Spirit as rested on Christ (Luke 4:18). “The Spirit of glory” is His Spirit, for He is the “Lord of glory” (James 2:1). Believers may well overcome the “reproach” (compare Hebrews 11:26), seeing that “the Spirit of glory” rests upon them, as upon Him. It cannot prevent the happiness of the righteous, if they are reproached for Christ, because they retain before God their glory entire, as having the Spirit, with whom glory is inseparably joined [Calvin].

_ _ and of GodGreek, “and the (Spirit) of God”; implying that the Spirit of glory (which is Christ’s Spirit) is at the same time also the Spirit of God.

_ _ on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified — omitted in the two oldest Greek manuscripts and Syriac and Coptic versions, but supported by one very old manuscript, Vulgate, Sahidic, Cyprian, etc. “Evil spoken of,” literally, “blasphemed”; not merely do they “speak against you,” as in 1 Peter 3:16, but blasphemously mock Christ and Christianity itself.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 4:12-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Peter 4:14

If ye are reproached for Christ — Reproaches and cruel mockings were always one part of their sufferings. The Spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you — The same Spirit which was upon Christ, Luke 4:18. He is here termed, the Spirit of glory, conquering all reproach and shame, and the Spirit of God, whose Son, Jesus Christ is. On their part he is blasphemed, but on your part he is glorified — That is, while they are blaspheming Christ, you glorify him in the midst of your sufferings, 1 Peter 4:16.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Peter 4:14

(14) If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the (e) spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

(14) Secondly, although the infidels think otherwise, who in afflicting the godly blaspheme God, yet the godly in that they are so abused, are honoured by God with true spiritual glory, and their adoption is sealed by the Spirit of God.

(e) By "Spirit" he means the gifts of the Spirit.
