Bible: 1 Peter 3:13-17

3:13 For 1  who is going to harm you if you are devoted to what is good? 3:14 But in fact, if you happen to suffer 2  for doing what is right, 3  you are blessed. But do not be terrified of them 4  or be shaken. 5  3:15 But set Christ 6  apart 7  as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess. 8  3:16 Yet do it with courtesy and respect, 9  keeping a good conscience, so that those who slander your good conduct in Christ may be put to shame when they accuse you. 10  3:17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if God wills it, 11  than for doing evil.
