1 Peter 2:20-23

Context
2:20 For what credit is it if you sin and are mistreated and endure it? But if you do good and suffer and so endure, this finds favor with God. 1  2:21 For to this you were called, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example for you to follow in his steps. 2:22 He 2  committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth. 3  2:23 When he was maligned, he 4  did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened 5  no retaliation, 6  but committed himself to God 7  who judges justly.

1 tn Grk “For this [is] favor/grace with God,” used as a metonymy as in vs. 19 of that which pleases him, which he looks on with favor (cf. BDAG 1079 s.v. χάρις 2).

2 tn Grk “who,” referring to Christ and applying the quotations from Isa 53 to him. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

3 sn A quotation from Isa 53:9.

4 tn Grk “who being maligned,” continuing the reference to Christ. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

5 tn Grk “he did not threaten, but.”

6 sn An allusion to Isa 53:7.

7 tn Grk “to the one”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
