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.
 

2:18 froward. That is, “contrary” (opposite of to-ward).

2:19 thankworthy. Both “thankworthy” in I Peter 2:19 and “acceptable” in I Peter 2:20 are translations of the same Greek word (charis), which is the usual word for “grace.” Solely because of His grace, Christ suffered for our sins, and took it patiently when He was buffeted for our faults, thus leaving us an example (I Peter 2:21) of the grace we also should show under such circumstances.
