1 Peter 2: When insulted, he didn’t insult

He committed no sin,
nor was there any deceit in his mouth.
When he was insulted, he didn’t insult in return,
when he suffered, he didn’t threaten,
but he gave himself up to the one who judges justly.
He himself bore our sins
in his body on the cross,
so that we might be free from sins
and live for righteousness.
It is by his wound that you are healed.

1 Peter 2:22-24, New Testament for Everyone, Tom Wright
