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.
3 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.
4 tn Grk “he did not threaten, but.”
6 tn Grk “to the one”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
