2 ΠΕΤΡΟΥ Α Reference I Peter
Ἀγαπητοί, παρακαλῶ ὡς παροίκους καὶ παρεπιδήμους ἀπέχεσθαι τῶν σαρκικῶν ἐπιθυμιῶν, αἱτινες στρατεύονται κατὰ τῆς ψυχῆς·Live as Servants of God 1Pe.2.11-17Beloved, I beseech you as aliens and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh that wage war against your soul.
τὴν ἀναστροφὴν ὑμῶν ἐν τοῖς ἐθνεσιν ἐχοντες καλήν, ἵνα, ἐν ᾧ καταλαλοῦσιν ὑμῶν ὡς κακοποιῶν, ἐκ τῶν καλῶν ἐργων ἐποπτεύοντες δοξάσωσιν τὸν θεὸν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἐπισκοπῆς.  Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that in case they speak against you as wrongdoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
Ὑποτάγητε πάσῃ ἄνθρωπίνῃ κτίσει διὰ τὸν κύριον· εἰτε βασιλεῖ ὡς ὑπερέχοντι, Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme,
εἰτε ἡγεμόσιν ὡς δῖ αὐτοῦ πεμπομένοις εἰς ἐκδίκησιν κακοποιῶν ἐπαινον δὲ ἀγαθοποιῶν·  or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do right.
ὅτι οὑτως ἐστὶν τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ, ἀγαθοποιοῦντας φιμοῦν τὴν τῶν ἀφρόνων ἀνθρώπων ἀγνωσίαν·  For it is God's will that by doing right you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.
ὡς ἐλεύθεροι, καὶ μὴ ὡς ἐπικάλυμμα ἐχοντες τῆς κακίας τὴν ἐλευθερίαν, ἀλλ' ὡς θεοῦ δοῦλοι. Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil; but live as servants of God.
πάντας τιμήσατε, τὴν ἀδελφότητα ἀγαπᾶτε, τὸν θεὸν φοβεῖσθε, τὸν βασιλέα τιμᾶτε.  Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
