For what credit [is it] if, [when you]a sin and are beaten [for it], you endure? But if you endure [when you]b do good and suffer [for it], this [finds] favor with God.
For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in his footsteps,
who did not commit sin, nor was deceit found in his mouth,c23
who [when he]d was reviled, did not revile in return; [when]e suffering, he did not threaten, but entrusted [himself] to the one who judges justly,
who himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that [we] may die to sins [and] live to righteousness, by whose wounds you were healed.
For you were going astray like sheep, but you have turned back now to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
