Love siblingly fellowship. Fear God and ar the riker. 18 Thaners, listen to your masters with all fear, not only if they are good and fairspoken, but also if they are froward. 19 For it is thankworthy if a were, for heart's eye,withstand grief and suffering wrongfully. 20 For what praise is it, if, when y'all are beaten for you guilts, you take it forbearingly? But and if when you do well and you suffer wrong and take it forbearingly, then there is thanks with God. 21 For y'all were truly called hereunto, for Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an byspell, that y'all should follow the steps of Him, 22 Who did no sin, nor was their any misleadingness in His mouth, 23 Who, when He was spoken against, did not spit back, when He suffered, He threatened not, but betook the orsake to the One Who deems righteously, 24 Who Hisself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so we could be aneried from sin and could live in rihteousness; by Whose stripes y'all were healed. 25 For y'all were as sheep going astray, but are now taken back unto your shepherd and overseer of your souls.
