1 Peter 2:18-20

RSV 18 Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing. 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. RSV 19 For one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain 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. RSV 20 For what credit is it, if when you do wrong and are beaten for it you take it patiently? But if when you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently, you have God's approval. 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.
