Bible: 1 Pet. 2:19-23
2:19 For this finds God’s favor, 1 if because of conscience toward God 2 someone endures hardships in suffering unjustly. 2:20 For what credit is it if you sin and are mistreated and endure it? But if you do good and suffer and so endure, this finds favor with God. 3 2:21 For to this you were called, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example for you to follow in his steps. 2:22 He 4 committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth. 5 2:23 When he was maligned, he 6 did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened 7 no retaliation, 8 but committed himself to God 9 who judges justly.
