For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example,a so that you should followb in His steps.
He did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth; cd23
when reviled, He did not revile in return; when suffering, He did not threaten,e but committed Himself to the One who judges justly.
He Himself bore our sins in His bodyf on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness;g by His wounding you have been healed. h25
For you were like sheep going astray, i but you have now returned to the shepherd and guardianj of your souls.k
