1 Peter 2:19-25

CEB 19 Now, it is commendable if, because of one's understanding of God, someone should endure pain through suffering unjustly. NRS 19 For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly. CEB 20 But what praise comes from enduring patiently when you have sinned and are beaten for it? But if you endure steadfastly when you've done good and suffer for 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. CEB 21 You were called to this kind of endurance, because Christ suffered on your behalf. He left you an example so that you might follow in his footsteps. 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. CEB 22 He committed no sin, nor did he ever speak in ways meant to deceive. NRS 22 "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." CEB 23 When he was insulted, he did not reply with insults. When he suffered, he did not threaten revenge. Instead, he entrusted himself to the one 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. CEB 24 He carried in his own body on the cross the sins we committed. He did this so that we might live in righteousness, having nothing to do with sin. By his wounds you were 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. CEB 25 Though you were like straying sheep, you have now returned to the shepherd and guardian of your lives. NRS 25 For you were going astray like sheep, but now you have returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
