1Pet3:13Now who is there [going] to harm you if you are zealous for [to do] what is good? 14But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 15but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense [give an answer] to anyone who asks you for a [to give the] reason for the hope that is in you; 16yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good [keeping a clear] conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile3 your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil. 18For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit [by the Spirit], - ESV

1Pet3:1Likewise, wives, be subject [submissive] to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey [believe] the word, they may be won [over] without a word by the conduct of their wives-- 2when they see your respectful and pure conduct. 3Do not let your adorning be external--the braiding of hair, the wearing of gold, or the putting on of [fine] clothing-- 4but let your adorning be the hidden [inner] person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. 5For this is how the holy women [of the past] who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their husbands, 6as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good [what is right] and do not fear anything that is frightening [give way to fear]. 7Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding [considerate] way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace [gracious gift] of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. - ESV
