For even unto this were ye called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps,
"who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth";
who when He was reviled, reviled not in return; when He suffered, He threatened not, but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously;
who His own self bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.
For ye were as sheep going astray, but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
