1 Peter 2:18–3:6

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. 25 For nye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned ounto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

3 aLikewise, bye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any cobey not the word, dthey also may without the word be ewon by the fconversation of the wives; While they gbehold your chaste fconversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of hplaiting the hair, and of hwearing of gold, or of hputting on of apparel; But let it be ithe hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who ktrusted in God, adorned themselves, bbeing in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, lcalling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and mare not afraid with any namazement.
