First Peter 1


1:1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers
 scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and
 Bithynia,
1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
 through sanctification of the Spirit, to obedience and
 sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you, and
 peace, be multiplied.
1:3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
 who according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again to a
 living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that
 fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation
 ready to be revealed in the last time.
1:6 In which ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season (if
 need be) ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than
 of gold that perisheth, though tried with fire, might be found
 to praise, and honor, and glory, at the appearing of Jesus
 Christ:
1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see
 [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable, and
 full of glory:
1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of
 [your] souls.
1:10 Concerning which salvation the prophets have inquired and
 searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should
 come] to you:
1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ
 which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the
 sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
1:12 To whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us
 they ministered the things which are now reported to you by
 them that have preached the gospel to you, with the Holy Spirit
 sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look
 into.
1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and
 hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought to you at
 the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according
 to the former lusts in your ignorance:
1:15 But as he who hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all
 manner of deportment.
1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of
 persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of
 your sojourning [here] in fear:
1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with
 corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain course
 of life [received] by tradition from your fathers;
1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without
 blemish and without spot:
1:20 Who verily was fore-ordained before the foundation of the
 world, but was manifested in these last times for you,
1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him from the
 dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in
 God.
1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth
 through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that
 ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently:
1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of
 incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for
 ever.
1:24 For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as
 the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and its flower
 falleth away:
1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the
 word which by the gospel is preached to you.
