1 Peter 2:10-12 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
10 Once you were no people but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy but now you have received mercy.
Live as Servants of God
11 Beloved, I beseech you as aliens and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh that wage war against your soul. 12 Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that in case they speak against you as wrongdoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
