1 Peter 4:15

1 Peter 4:15 (KJV 1900) — 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. [allotrioepiskopos (ἀλλοτριεπίσκοπος, 244)] “busybody” in the kjv of 1 Pet. 4:15)

  • allotrioepiskopos (λλοτριεπίσκοπος, 244), from allotrios, “belonging to another person,” and episkopos, “an overseer,” translated “busybody” in the kjv of 1 Pet. 4:15, “meddler,” rv, was a legal term for a charge brought against Christians as being hostile to civilized society, their purpose being to make Gentiles conform to Christian standards. Some explain it as a pryer into others’ affairs
