1 Peter 2:21-23

Context
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 1  committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth. 2  2:23 When he was maligned, he 3  did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened 4  no retaliation, 5  but committed himself to God 6  who judges justly.
