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.
