Christ Is Our Example

21 For (A)you have been called for this purpose, (B)since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you (C)an example for you to follow in His steps, 22 who (D)committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; 23 [a]and while being (E)reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 and He Himself [b](F)bore our sins in His body on the [c](G)cross, so that we (H)might die to [d]sin and live to righteousness; for (I)by His [e]wounds you were (J)healed.
