If we should suffer for righteousness' sake, we are blessed and are not to be afraid of their threats nor be troubled.
and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. 29 For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. "And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled."
~•1 Peter 3:14
