1 Peter 3

8 Last of all, see that you are all in agreement; feeling for one another, loving one another like brothers, full of pity, without pride:

9 Not giving back evil for evil, or curse for curse, but in place of cursing, blessing; because this is the purpose of God for you that you may have a heritage of blessing.

10 For it is said, Let the man who has a love of life, desiring to see good days, keep his tongue from evil and his lips from words of deceit:

11 And let him be turned from evil and do good; searching for peace and going after it with all his heart.

12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the upright, and his ears are open to their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.

13 Who will do you any damage if you keep your minds fixed on what is good?

14 But you are happy if you undergo pain because of righteousness; have no part in their fear and do not be troubled;

15 But give honour to Christ in your hearts as your Lord; and be ready at any time when you are questioned about the hope which is in you, to give an answer in the fear of the Lord and without pride;

16 Being conscious that you have done no wrong; so that those who say evil things about your good way of life as Christians may be put to shame.

17 Because if it is God's purpose for you to undergo pain, it is better to do so for well-doing than for evil-doing.

18 Because Christ once went through pain for sins, the upright one taking the place of sinners, so that through him we might come back to God; being put to death in the flesh, but given life in the Spirit;

19 By whom he went to the spirits in prison, preaching to those

20 Who, in the days of Noah, went against God's orders; but God in his mercy kept back the punishment, while Noah got ready the ark, in which a small number, that is to say eight persons, got salvation through water:

21 And baptism, of which this is an image, now gives you salvation, not by washing clean the flesh, but by making you free from the sense of sin before God, through the coming again of Jesus Christ from the dead;

22 Who has gone into heaven, and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been put under his rule.




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
