1 Pedro 3

1 Likewise, wives, {be} subject to your own husbands, that, even if any are disobedient to the word, they may be gained without {the} word by the conversation of the wives,

8 Finally, {be} all of one mind, sympathising, full of brotherly love, tender hearted, humble minded;

14 But if also ye should suffer for righteousness' sake, blessed {are ye}; but be not afraid of their fear, neither be troubled;

15 but sanctify {the} Lord the Christ in your hearts, and {be} always prepared to {give} an answer {to} every one that asks you to give an account of the hope that {is} in you, but with meekness and fear;

16 having a good conscience, that {as to that} in which they speak against you as evildoers, they may be ashamed who calumniate your good conversation in Christ.

17 For {it is} better, if the will of God should will it, to suffer {as} well-doers than {as} evildoers;

18 for Christ indeed has once suffered for sins, {the} just for {the} unjust, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in flesh, but made alive in {the} Spirit,

19 in which also going he preached to the spirits {which are} in prison,

20 heretofore disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in {the} days of Noah while the ark was preparing, into which few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water:

21 which figure also now saves you, {even} baptism, not a putting away of {the} filth of flesh, but {the} demand as before God of a good conscience, by {the} resurrection of Jesus Christ,

22 who is at {the} right hand of God, gone into heaven, angels and authorities and powers being subjected to him.
