1 Peter 3:13-22

NIV 13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? NRS 13 Now who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good? NIV 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats ; do not be frightened.” NRS 14 But even if you do suffer for doing what is right, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear, and do not be intimidated, NIV 15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, NRS 15 but in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; NIV 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. NRS 16 yet do it with gentleness and reverence. Keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who abuse you for your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame. NIV 17 For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. NRS 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if suffering should be God's will, than to suffer for doing evil. NIV 18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. NRS 18 For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit, NIV 19 After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits— NRS 19 in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in prison, NIV 20 to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, NRS 20 who in former times did not obey, when God waited patiently in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water. NIV 21 and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, NRS 21 And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you—not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, NIV 22 who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him. NRS 22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers made subject to him.
