Ministry on This Verse

 The worst of mankind are struck when they see the proud rendered lowly, the violent meek, the quarrelsome peacemakers, the frivolous and pleasure-hunting grave, the corrupt pure, the covetous liberal, the careless or even blasphemous godly. But no doubt an evil eye under Satan's power may refuse all moral evidence and impute every such change for good to hypocrisy, and only hate the more those who leave their own wretched and wicked ranks to follow Christ. (1 Peter 3:13-16 by W. Kelly)
 This, then, is the government of God, the principle on which He superintends the course of this world. (1 Peter 3 by J.N. Darby)

J. N. Darby Translation

And who shall injure you if ye have become imitators of that which is goodb?

JND Translation Notes

Or "him that is good."

W. Kelly Translation

And who shall injure you if ye become zealous of the good1?

WK Translation Notes

zealous: ζ. is more than "followers" or "imitators" (as in the Text. Rec. μ.) meaning neither, but zealous or emulous of good. (Bible Treasury 14:80)
