(1Pet 4:14) If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of God and of glory rests on you. Truly according to them, He is blasphemed, but according to you He is glorified.
(1Pet 4:15) But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or a meddler in the affairs of others.

(Job 5:11) to set on high those who are low, so that those who mourn may be lifted up to safety;
