22WHO4COMMITTEDNOSIN, NOR WAS ANY DECEITFOUND IN HIS MOUTH;
23aand while being 5reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He utterednothreats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judgesrighteously;
and He Himselfb6bore our sins in His body on the c7cross, so that we 8might die to dsin and live to righteousness; for 9by His ewounds you were 10healed.
For you were 11continually strayinglikesheep, but now you have returned to the 12Shepherd and fGuardian of your souls.
