  1. 8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another. Show sympathy, brotherly love, compassion, and humility.[c] 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. Instead, speak a blessing, because you were called for the purpose of inheriting a blessing. 10 Indeed:

    Let the one who wants to love life
    and to see good days
    keep his tongue from evil
    and his lips from saying anything deceitful.
    11 Let him turn from evil and do what is good.
    Let him seek peace and pursue it.
    12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
    and his ears are open to their requests.
    But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.[d]

    13 Who will harm you if you are eager to do[e] what is good? 14 But even if you should happen to suffer because of righteousness, you are blessed. Do not be afraid of what they fear,[f] and do not be troubled. 15 But regard the Lord, the Christ,[g] as holy in your hearts.[h] Always be prepared to give an answer[i] to everyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope that is in you. 16 But speak with gentleness and respect, while maintaining a clear conscience, so that those who attack your good way of life in Christ may be put to shame because they slandered you as evildoers.[j]

    17 Indeed, it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil, 18 because Christ also suffered once for sins in our place,[k] the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you[l] to God. He was put to death in flesh[m] but was made alive in spirit,[n] 19 in which he also went and made an announcement to the spirits in prison. 20 These spirits disobeyed long ago, when God’s patience was waiting in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In this ark a few, that is, eight souls, were saved by water. 21 And corresponding to that, baptism now saves you—not the removal of dirt from the body but the guarantee[o] of a good conscience before God through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 22 He went to heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers made subject to him. – 1 Peter 3:8-22 (EHV)

  2. Can you recommend a modern English version of the Bible? Something in large print and available through Amazon and your own link would be nice. Thank you in advance.

    1. Hello, Charles. I’ve really been enjoying the Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV) since it was released just over a year ago. It is published by the Wartburg Project, and they haven’t got a “large print” copy yet. However, the regular size copy is easy to read, for me at least; the font used is larger than some of the other Bible translations I own. Alternatives to the hardcover book would be the Kindle version that’s available on Amazon, or reading online using biblegateway.com These methods would allow you to modify the text to whatever size you find comfortable.

      If you want to learn more about this translation or purchase a copy, go to http://wartburgproject.org/ I just checked on Amazon, and they’re charging an outrageous price for the hardcover version; I don’t understand why, but there’s no need to pay that price.
