1 Peter 2:17-25 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
17 1Honor all people, 2love the brotherhood, 3fear God, 4honor the aking. 18 5Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and 6gentle, but also to those who are bunreasonable. 19 For this finds cfavor, if for the sake of 7conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if 8when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds dfavor with God.

Christ Is Our Example

21 For 9you have been called for this purpose, 10since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you 11an example for you to follow in His steps, 22 WHO 12COMMITTED NO SIN, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT FOUND IN HIS MOUTH; 23 eand while being 13reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 and He Himself f14bore our sins in His body on the g15cross, so that we 16might die to hsin and live to righteousness; for 17by His iwounds you were 18healed. 25 For you were 19continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the 20Shepherd and jGuardian of your souls.
