English Revised Version
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, ye have been put to grief in manifold temptations,
Webster's Bible Translation
In which ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season (if need be) ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
Weymouth New Testament
Rejoice triumphantly in the prospect of this, even if now, for a short time, you are compelled to sorrow amid various trials.
1 Peter 1:6 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Ye greatly rejoice (ἀγαλλιᾶσθε)
For a season (ὀλίγον)
More literally and correctly, as Rev., for a little while. Compare 1 Peter 5:10. The word is used nowhere else in the New Testament in this sense.
In heaviness (λυπηθέντες)
Lit., having been grieved. Rev., ye have been put to grief.
But Rev., better, in; the preposition not being instrumental, but indicating the sphere or environment in which the grief operates.
Literally the word means variegated. It is used to describe the skin of a leopard, the different-colored veinings of marble, or an embroidered robe; and thence passes into the meaning of changeful, diversified, applied to the changing months or the variations of a strain of music. Peter employs it again, 1 Peter 4:10, of the grace of God, and James of temptations, as here (James 1:2). Compare πολυποίκιλος, manifold, in Ephesians 3:10, applied to the wisdom of God. The word gives a vivid picture of the diversity of the trials, emphasizing this idea rather than that of their number, which is left to be inferred.
Better, trials, as in margin of Rev., since the word includes more than direct solicitation to evil. It embraces all that goes to furnish a test of character. Compare James 1:2.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,
1 Peter 3:17
For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil.
1 Peter 4:12
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
1 Peter 5:10
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
