And finally, being all of one mind, having fellow-feeling, loving as brethren, compassionate, courteous,
not giving back evil for evil, or railing for railing, and on the contrary, blessing, having known that to this ye were called, that a blessing ye may inherit;
for `he who is willing to love life, and to see good days, let him guard his tongue from evil, and his lips -- not to speak guile;
let him turn aside from evil, and do good, let him seek peace and pursue it;
because the eyes of the Lord [are] upon the righteous, and His ears -- to their supplication, and the face of the Lord [is] upon those doing evil;'
and who [is] he who will be doing you evil, if of Him who is good ye may become imitators?
but if ye also should suffer because of righteousness, happy [are ye]! and of their fear be not afraid, nor be troubled,
and the Lord God sanctify in your hearts. And [be] ready always for defence to every one who is asking of you an account concerning the hope that [is] in you, with meekness and fear;
having a good conscience, that in that in which they speak against you as evil-doers, they may be ashamed who are traducing your good behaviour in Christ;
for [it is] better doing good, if the will of God will it, to suffer, than doing evil;
