20 For (A)what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 21 For (B)to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for [a]us, (C)leaving [b]us an example, that you should follow His steps:

22 “Who(D) committed no sin,
Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;

23 (E)who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but (F)committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 (G)who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, (H)that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—(I)by whose [c]stripes you were healed. 25 For (J)you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned (K)to the Shepherd and [d]Overseer of your souls.
