New International Version
When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
King James Bible
Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible

"For Hereunto were Ye Called; Because Christ Also Suffered for You...
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong."
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
1 Peter 3:9
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
