But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.121
To this2 you were called,3 because Christ suffered for you,4 leaving you an example,5 that you should follow in his steps.
"He committed no sin,6 and no deceit was found in his mouth."a723
When they hurled their insults at him,8 he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats.9 Instead, he entrusted himself10 to him who judges justly.1124
He himself bore our sins12 in his body on the tree,13 so that we might die to sins14 and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.1525
For you were like sheep going astray,16 but now you have returned to the Shepherd17 and Overseer of your souls.18
