For it [brings] favor if, because of conscience toward God, someone endures grief from suffering unjustly.
For what credit is there if you endure when you sin and are beaten? But when you do good and suffer, if you endure, it brings favor with God.
For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps.
He did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth;
when reviled, He did not revile in return; when suffering, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to the One who judges justly.
