21 For you were called to this,

because Christ also suffered m for you,

leaving you an example, n

so that you should follow o in His steps.

22 He did not commit sin, p

and no deceit q was found in His mouth; r s

23 when He was reviled,

He did not revile in return;

when He was suffering,

He did not threaten

but entrusted Himself to the One who judges t justly.

24 He Himself bore our sins u

in His body v on the tree, w

so that, having died to sins, x

we might live for righteousness; y

you have been healed by His wounds. z a

25 For you were like sheep going astray, b c

but you have now returned

to the Shepherd d and Guardian e of your souls.
