1 Peter 3 : 8-12

New Living Translation (New Testament)
All Christians
  
8   Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love
each other as brothers and sisters.[a] Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble
attitude.

9   Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you.
Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do,
and he will bless you for it.

10  For the Scriptures say,

        “If you want to enjoy life
        and see many happy days,
        keep your tongue from speaking evil
        and your lips from telling lies.

11      Turn away from evil and do good.
        Search for peace, and work to maintain it.

12      The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right,
        and his ears are open to their prayers.
        But the Lord turns his face
        against those who do evil.”
