For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But 1if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God.
For 2to this you have been called, 3because Christ also suffered for you, 4leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.
225He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth.
236When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, 7but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.
248He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we 9might die to sin and 10live to righteousness. 11By his wounds you have been healed.
For 12you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to 13the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
