Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?114
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.2 "Do not fear what they feara; do not be frightened."b315
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer4 to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope5 that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
keeping a clear conscience,6 so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.717
It is better, if it is God's will,8 to suffer for doing good9 than for doing evil.
