'Yourselves' in the Bible
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
but just as he who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior;
And if you call on [him] [as] Father who judges impartially according to each one's work, conduct yourselves with fear during the time of your temporary residence,
By obedience to the truth, having purified yourselves for sincere love of the brothers, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,
Therefore, ridding yourselves of all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
My loved ones, I make this request with all my heart, that, as those for whom this world is a strange country, you will keep yourselves from the desires of the flesh which make war against the soul;
Conduct yourselves properly (honorably, righteously) among the Gentiles, so that, although they may slander you as evildoers, [yet] they may by witnessing your good deeds [come to] glorify God in the day of inspection [ when God shall look upon you wanderers as a pastor or shepherd looks over his flock].
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
The domestics! be subjecting yourselves in all fear to the masters, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the cross;
Wives, in the same way, submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, even if some disobey the [Christian] message, they may be won over without a message by the way their wives live,
When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him -- "to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].
Never return evil for evil or insult for insult (scolding, tongue-lashing, berating), but on the contrary blessing [praying for their welfare, happiness, and protection, and truly pitying and loving them]. For know that to this you have been called, that you may yourselves inherit a blessing [from God -- "that you may obtain a blessing as heirs, bringing welfare and happiness and protection].
And who will be able to harm you, if you show yourselves zealous for that which is good?
Therefore, since Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same resolve-because the One who suffered in the flesh has finished with sin -
But the end of all things is now close at hand: therefore be sober-minded and temperate, so that you may give yourselves to prayer.
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
according as each hath received a gift, ministering it among yourselves, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God;
neither as lording it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves ensamples to the flock.
Likewise, ye younger, be subject unto the elder. Yea, all of you gird yourselves with humility, to serve one another: for God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the humble.
Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,
