Bible: 1 Pet 3:12-16

3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are 1  upon the righteous and his ears are open to their prayer.

But the Lord’s face is against those who do evil. 2 

3:13 For 3  who is going to harm you if you are devoted to what is good? 3:14 But in fact, if you happen to suffer 4  for doing what is right, 5  you are blessed. But do not be terrified of them 6  or be shaken. 7  3:15 But set Christ 8  apart 9  as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess. 10  3:16 Yet do it with courtesy and respect, 11  keeping a good conscience, so that those who slander your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame when they accuse you. 12
