BLB(i) 18 Servants, be subject to masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the unreasonable. 19 For this is acceptable, if for sake of conscience toward God, anyone endures griefs, suffering unjustly. 20 For what kind of credit is it, if sinning and being struck, you shall endure? But if you shall endure doing good and suffering, this is commendable before God. 21 For to this hereunto you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow after His steps: 22 “Who committed no sin, neither was deceit found in His mouth.” 23 Who being reviled did not retaliate; suffering did not threaten, but He gave Himself over to Him judging justly. 24 Who Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having been dead to sins, we might live to righteousness. “By whose scourge marks you have been healed.” 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
