LEB 13 Subject yourselves to every human authority for the sake of the Lord, whether to a king as having supreme authority, NIV 13 Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, LEB 14 or to governors as those sent out by him for the punishment of those who do evil and the praise of those who do good. NIV 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. LEB 15 For the will of God is as follows: [by] doing good to silence the ignorance of foolish people. NIV 15 For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. LEB 16 [Live] as free [persons], and not using your freedom as a covering for evil, but as slaves of God. NIV 16 Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. LEB 17 Honor all [people], love the community of believers, fear God, honor the king. NIV 17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king. LEB 18 Domestic slaves, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to those [who are] good and gentle, but also to those [who are] unjust. NIV 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. LEB 19 For this [finds] favor, if because of consciousness of God someone endures sorrows [while] suffering unjustly. NIV 19 For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God. LEB 20 For what credit [is it] if, [when you] sin and are beaten [for it], you endure? But if you endure [when you] do good and suffer [for it], this [finds] favor with God. NIV 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. LEB 21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in his footsteps, NIV 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. LEB 22 who did not commit sin, nor was deceit found in his mouth, NIV 22 "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." LEB 23 who [when he] was reviled, did not revile in return; [when] suffering, he did not threaten, but entrusted [himself] to the one who judges justly, NIV 23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. LEB 24 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. NIV 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
