1 Peter 3:10-12 (New Living Translation)10 For the Scriptures say,
“If you want to enjoy life
and see many happy days,
keep your tongue from speaking evil
and your lips from telling lies.
11 Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
12 The eyes of the Lord
and his ears are open to their prayers.
But the Lord turns his face
against those who do evil.”
