1 Peter 3:14

But and if ye should suffer (all ei kai pasxoite). "But if ye should also (or even) suffer." Condition of the fourth class with ei and the optative (undetermined with less likelihood), a rare condition in the vernacular Koin‚, since the optative was a dying mode. If matters, in spite of the prophetic note of victory in verse I Peter 3:13, should come to actual suffering "for righteousness' sake" (dia dikaiosunhn) as in Matthew 5:10 (eneken, not dia), then "blessed" (makarioi, the very word of Jesus there which see, a word meaning "happy," not euloghtoi) "are ye" (not in the Greek). If the conclusion were expressed regularly, it would be eihte an (ye would be), not este (ye are). It is interesting to note the third-class condition in verse I Peter 3:13 just before the fourth-class one in verse I Peter 3:14.

Fear not their fear (ton fobon autwn mh fobhqhte). Prohibition with mh and the first aorist (ingressive) passive subjunctive of fobeomai, to fear, and the cognate accusative fobon (fear, terror). "Do not fear their threats" (Bigg). Quotation from Isaiah 8:12 f.

Neither be troubled (mhde taracqhte). Prohibition with mhde and the first aorist (ingressive) subjunctive of tarassw, to disturb (Matthew 2:6; John 12:27). Part of the same quotation. Cf. I Peter 3:6.
