    King James Bible - 1 Peter 2:20

    For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

    World English Bible

    For what glory is it if, when you sin, you patiently endure beating? But if, when you do well, you patiently endure suffering, this is commendable with God.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Peter 2:20

    For what glory is it, if committing sin, and being buffeted for it, you endure? But if doing well you suffer patiently; this is thankworthy before God.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For what glory is it, if, when ye are buffeted for your faults, ye
    bear it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye bear it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

    VERSE (20) -
    1Pe 3:14; 4:14-16 Mt 5:47

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:20

    Porque ¿qu gloria es, si pecando vosotros sois abofeteados, y lo sufrís? Mas si haciendo bien sois afligidos, y lo sufrís, esto ciertamente es debido a la gracia de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 2:20

    Verse 20. For what
    glory is it] It appears from this that the poor Christians, and especially those who had been converted to Christianity while in a state of slavery, were often grievously abused, they were buffeted because they were Christians, and because they would not join with their masters in idolatrous worship.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. For what
    glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults , etc.] Which ye have committed, and are guilty of, and are truly such: ye shall take it patiently ? to be silent, and not murmur when beaten, within measure, for real faults, is no great honour, nor does it deserve any praise; it is the least that can be done: but if, when ye do well ; either in their master's service, or rather in the business of religion, and the things of God; as when what they do is according to the will of God, and from love to him, and in faith, and in the name and strength of Christ, and to the glory of God; without all which there is no well doing: and suffer for it ; reproach and persecution, by words or blows, in person or property: ye take it patiently ; without grieving and repining, or answering again, and making any returns: this is acceptable with God ; is agreeably to his will, and grateful in his sight, what he is well pleased with, is reckoned grace with him; and though it is his own grace, and of his own bestowing, he will reward it with glory.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-25 -
    Servants in those days generally were slaves, and had heathen masters who often used them cruelly; yet the apostle directs them to be subjec to the masters placed over them by Providence, with a fear to dishonou or offend God. And not only to those pleased with reasonable service but to the severe, and those angry without cause. The sinful misconduc of one relation, does not justify sinful behaviour in the other; the servant is bound to do his duty, though the master may be sinfull froward and perverse. But masters should be meek and gentle to their servants and inferiors. What glory or distinction could it be, for professed Christians to be patient when corrected for their faults? But if when they behaved well they were ill treated by proud and passionat heathen masters, yet bore it without peevish complaints, or purposes of revenge, and persevered in their duty, this would be acceptable to God as a distinguishing effect of his grace, and would be rewarded by him Christ's death was designed not only for an example of patience unde sufferings, but he bore our sins; he bore the punishment of them, an thereby satisfied Divine justice. Hereby he takes them away from us The fruits of Christ's sufferings are the death of sin, and a new holy life of righteousness; for both which we have an example, and powerfu motives, and ability to perform also, from the death and resurrectio of Christ. And our justification; Christ was bruised and crucified as sacrifice for our sins, and by his stripes the diseases of our soul are cured. Here is man's sin; he goes astray; it is his own act. Hi misery; he goes astray from the pasture, from the Shepherd, and from the flock, and so exposes himself to dangers without number. Here is the recovery by conversion; they are now returned as the effect of Divine grace. This return is, from all their errors and wanderings, to Christ. Sinners, before their conversion, are always going astray their life is a continued error __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    20. What
    glory (poion kleov). Lit., what kind of glory. This word for glory occurs nowhere else in the New Testament.

    Buffeted (kolafizomenoi). See Matt. xxvi. 67: struck with the fist. This whole passage, vv. 19-24, bears the mark of Peter's memories of the scene of Christ's last sufferings (see Introduction) - the blows of the servants, the scorn of the highpriest, the silent submission of Jesus, the cross, the stripes.
