Rejoice! (1Pet 1:6)

“In this,

You rejoice!

Even if now

For a little while,

You have had

To suffer

Various trials.”

ἐν ᾧ ἀγαλλιᾶσθε, ὀλίγον ἄρτι εἰ δέον λυπηθέντες ἐν ποικίλοις πειρασμοῖς,

This author said, “In this, you rejoice (ἐν ᾧ ἀγαλλιᾶσθε)!  Even if now for a little while (ὀλίγον ἄρτι εἰ), you have had to suffer (δέον λυπηθέντες) various trials (ἐν ποικίλοις πειρασμοῖς).”  This author reminded his readers that they should rejoice, even if for a little while they were going to have to suffer various trials and tribulations.  They should rejoice in their momentary difficulties.  Do you suffer some difficulties in your life?
