1 Peter 2:19-25

NIV 19 For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. NRS 19 For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly. 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. NRS 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. NIV 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. NRS 21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in his steps. NIV 22 “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” NRS 22 "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." 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. NRS 23 When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly. NIV 24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” NRS 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. NIV 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. NRS 25 For you were going astray like sheep, but now you have returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
