New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
18 Slaves, accept the authority of your masters with all deference, not only those who are kind and gentle but also those who are harsh. 18 Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh.
19 For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly. 19 For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God.
20 If you endure when you are beaten for doing wrong, what credit is that? But if you endure when you do right and suffer for it, you have God's approval. 20 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.
