1 Peter 2:10-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
10 Once you were “no people”
but now you are God’s people;
you “had not received mercy”
but now you have received mercy.
III. The Christian in a Hostile World
Christian Examples. 11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and sojourners to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against the soul. 12 Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that if they speak of you as evildoers, they may observe your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation.
