you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house for a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Submit to every human authority[fn] because of the Lord, whether to the Emperor[fn] as the supreme authority

He did not commit sin,

and no deceit was found in His mouth;

Tools specific to 1Pe 2:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 2:23

when He was reviled,

He did not revile in return;

when He was suffering,

He did not threaten

but entrusted Himself to the One who judges justly.

Tools specific to 1Pe 2:24

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 2:24

He Himself bore our sins

in His body on the tree,

so that, having died to sins,
