Notes and quotes.

§ Peter in 1 Peter 3.14a:

Αλλ ει και πασχοιτε δια δικαιοσυνην μακαριοι.

But, even if you should suffer for the sake of justice, you are blessed.

1 Peter 4.14:

Ει ονειδιζεσθε εν ονοματι Χριστου, μακαριοι, οτι το της δοξης και το του θεου πνευμα εφ υμας αναπαυεται.

If you are reviled in the name of Christ, you are blessed, since the spirit of glory and of God upon you rests.

Both of these verses are classified amongst the sayings of Jesus outside the four gospels.

§ Didache 3.7:

Ισθι δε πραυς, επει οι πραεις κληρονομησουσι την γην.

But be gentle, since the gentle will inherit the earth.

§ Barnabas 19.4b:

Εση πραυς, εση ησυχιος, εση τρεμων τους λογους ους ηκουσας. ου μνησικακησεις τω αδελφω σου.

Be gentle, be quiet, be trembling at the words that you have heard. Do not bear a grudge against your brother.
