Bible: 1 Pet 2:18-23

2:18 Slaves, 1  be subject 2  to your masters with all reverence, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are perverse. 2:19 For this finds God’s favor, 3  if because of conscience toward God 4  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. 5  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 6  committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth. 7  2:23 When he was maligned, he 8  did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened 9  no retaliation, 10  but committed himself to God 11  who judges justly.
