1 G4074 Peter, G652 an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G3927 to the strangers G1290 scattered G4195 throughout Pontus, G1053 Galatia, G2587 Cappadocia, G773 Asia, G978 and Bithynia,
2 G1588 Elect G2596 according G4268 to the foreknowledge G2316 of God G3962 the Father, G1722 through G38 sanctification G4151 of the Spirit, G5218 to obedience G4473 and sprinkling G129 of the blood G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ: G5485 Grace G1515 to you, and peace, G4129 be multiplied.
3 G2128 Blessed G2316 be the God G3962 and Father G2962 of our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G3588 which G2596 according G4183 to his abundant G1656 mercy G313 has begotten G313 us again G2198 to a lively G1680 hope G386 by the resurrection G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G3498 from the dead,
4 G2817 To an inheritance G862 incorruptible, G283 and undefiled, G268 and that fades G5083 not away, reserved G3772 in heaven for you,
5 G3588 Who G5432 are kept G1411 by the power G2316 of God G1223 through G4102 faith G4991 to salvation G2092 ready G601 to be revealed G2078 in the last G2540 time.
6 G1722 Wherein G3757 G21 you greatly rejoice, G737 though now G3641 for a season, G1487 if G1163 need G3076 be, you are in heaviness G1722 through G4164 manifold G3986 temptations:
7 G1383 That the trial G5216 of your G4102 faith, G1096 being G4183 much G5093 more precious G5553 than of gold G622 that perishes, G1381 though it be tried G4442 with fire, G2147 might be found G1868 to praise G5092 and honor G1391 and glory G1722 at G602 the appearing G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ:
8 G3739 Whom G1492 having not seen, G25 you love; G737 in whom, though now G3708 you see G1161 him not, yet G4100 believing, G21 you rejoice G5479 with joy G412 unspeakable G1392 and full of glory:
9 G2865 Receiving G5056 the end G5216 of your G4102 faith, G4991 even the salvation G5590 of your souls.
10 G3739 Of which G4991 salvation G4396 the prophets G1567 have inquired G1830 and searched G3588 diligently, who G4395 prophesied G5485 of the grace that should come to you:
11 G2045 Searching G1519 what, G5101 G2228 or G4169 what G4169 manner G2540 of time G4151 the Spirit G5547 of Christ G3588 which G1213 was in them did signify, G4303 when it testified G4303 beforehand G3804 the sufferings G5547 of Christ, G1391 and the glory G3326 that should follow. G5023
12 G3739 To whom G601 it was revealed, G1438 that not to themselves, G1247 but to us they did minister G846 the things, G3739 which G3568 are now G312 reported G2097 to you by them that have preached G2097 the gospel G40 to you with the Holy G4151 Ghost G649 sent G3772 down from heaven; G3739 which G32 things the angels G1937 desire G3879 to look G1519 into.
13 G1352 Why G328 gird G3751 up the loins G5216 of your G1271 mind, G3525 be sober, G1679 and hope G5049 to the end G5485 for the grace G5342 that is to be brought G1722 to you at G602 the revelation G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ;
14 G5218 As obedient G5043 children, G4964 not fashioning G2596 yourselves according G4386 to the former G1939 lusts G5216 in your G52 ignorance:
15 G2564 But as he which has called G40 you is holy, G2532 so G40 be you holy G3956 in all G391 manner of conversation;
17 G1487 And if G1941 you call G1941 on G3962 the Father, G3588 who G678 without G678 respect G678 of persons G2919 judges G2596 according G1538 to every G2041 man’s work, G390 pass G5550 the time G5216 of your G3940 sojourning G5401 here in fear:
18 G1492 For as much as you know G3084 that you were not redeemed G5349 with corruptible G694 things, as silver G5553 and gold, G5216 from your G3152 vain G391 conversation G5216 received by tradition from your G3970 fathers;
19 G5093 But with the precious G129 blood G5547 of Christ, G286 as of a lamb G784 without G299 blemish G784 and without G784 spot:
20 G3303 Who truly G4267 was foreordained G4253 before G2602 the foundation G2889 of the world, G5319 but was manifest G3588 in these G2078 last G5550 times for you,
21 G3588 Who G4100 by him do believe G2316 in God, G1453 that raised G3498 him up from the dead, G1325 and gave G1391 him glory; G5216 that your G4102 faith G1680 and hope G2316 might be in God.
22 G48 Seeing you have purified G5216 your G5590 souls G5218 in obeying G225 the truth G1223 through G4151 the Spirit G505 to unfeigned G5360 love G5360 of the brothers, G25 see that you love G240 one G240 another G2513 with a pure G2588 heart G1619 fervently:
23 G313 Being born G313 again, G5349 not of corruptible G4701 seed, G862 but of incorruptible, G3056 by the word G2316 of God, G2198 which lives G3306 and stays G165 for ever.
24 G3956 For all G4561 flesh G5528 is as grass, G3956 and all G1391 the glory G444 of man G438 as the flower G5528 of grass. G5528 The grass G3583 wither, G438 and the flower G846 thereof G1601 falls G1601 away:
