Reproach hath broken my heart.
Is not this the carpenter’s son?–Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?–Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?–He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.–We know that this man is a sinner.–He deceiveth the people.–This [man] blasphemeth.–Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners.
It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more [shall they call] them of his household?–This [is] thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. . . . For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously.–If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
