When He was reviled, He reviled not again. – 1 Peter 2:23

NOT because His enemies had found in Him something that could properly and justly be reviled and evil spoken of;–nor because His enemies were so nearly perfect that He could find nothing in them to revile and speak evil of; but because He was so full of submission to the divine will that He was enabled to take the scoffs and railings of the people, and to bear these humbly and patiently, and to remember that even hereunto He was called, did Jesus endure patiently and learn the lessons, and prove Himself faithful, and develop and demonstrate His true character, and feel and manifest His pity for the people, in their blindness and ignorance, and His love for them. Z. ’01-298 R2879:4
