12 sHaving your tconversation honest among the Gentiles: that, ||uwhereas they speak against you as wevildoers, they may xby your good works, which they shall ybehold, zglorify God in the day of avisitation. 13 bSubmit yourselves to every ordinance of man cfor the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as bdsupreme; 14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him efor the punishment of evildoers, and ffor the praise of them that do well. 15 For so is gthe will of God, that hwith well doing ye may iput to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 kAs free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as lthe servants of God. 17 ||mHonour all men. Love nthe brotherhood. oFear God. opHonour the king. 18 qServants, rbe subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and sgentle, but also to the tfroward. 19 For this is ||thankworthy, uif a man vfor conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For wwhat glory is it, if, when ye be xbuffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, wwhen ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is ||acceptable with God. 21 For even yhereunto zwere ye called: because aChrist also suffered ||for us, bleaving us an cexample, that ye should follow dhis steps: 22 eWho did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 fWho, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but ||gcommitted himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24 hWho his own self bare our sins in his own body ||on ithe tree, kthat we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: lby whose mstripes ye were healed.
