To this1 you were called,2 because Christ suffered for you,3 leaving you an example,4 that you should follow in his steps.
"He committed no sin,5 and no deceit was found in his mouth."a623
When they hurled their insults at him,7 he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats.8 Instead, he entrusted himself9 to him who judges justly.1024
He himself bore our sins11 in his body on the tree,12 so that we might die to sins13 and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.1425
For you were like sheep going astray,15 but now you have returned to the Shepherd16 and Overseer of your souls.17
