2 G2596 Elect according to G4268 the foreknowledge G2316 of God G3962 the Father, G1722 through G38 sanctification G4151 of the Spirit, G1519 unto G5218 obedience G2532 and G4473 sprinkling G129 of the blood G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ: G5485 Grace G5213 unto you, G2532 and G1515 peace, G4129 be multiplied.
3 G2128 Blessed G2316 be the God G2532 and G3962 Father G2962 of G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G3588 who G2596 according to G846 his G4183 abundant G1656 mercy G313 has fathered G2248 us G313 again G1519 unto G2198 a living G1680 hope G1223 by G386 the resurrection G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G1537 from G3498 the dead,
4 G1519 To G2817 an inheritance G862 incorruptible, G2532 and G283 undefiled, G2532 and G263 that fades not away, G5083 reserved G1722 in G3772 heaven G1519 for G5209 you,
5 G3588 Who G5432 are kept G1722 by G1411 the power G2316 of God G1223 through G4102 faith G1519 unto G4991 salvation G2092 ready G601 to be revealed G1722 in G2078 the last G2540 time.
6 G1722 Where G21 you greatly rejoice, G737 though now G3641 for a season, G1487 if G1163 need be, G2076 you are G3076 grieved G1722 by G4164 various G3986 trials:
7 G2443 That G1383 the trial G5216 of your G4102 faith, G4183 being much G5093 more precious than G5553 of gold G3588 that G622 perishes, G1161 though G1381 it be tried G1223 with G4442 fire, G2147 might be found G1519 unto G1868 praise G2532 and G5092 honor G2532 and G1391 glory G1722 at G602 the appearing G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ:
8 G3739 Whom G1492 having G3756 not G1492 seen, G25 you love; G1519 in G3739 whom, G737 though now G3708 you see G3361 him not, G1161 yet G4100 believing, G21 you rejoice G5479 with joy G412 unspeakable G2532 and G1392 full of glory:
9 G2865 Receiving G5056 the end G5216 of your G4102 faith, G4991 even the salvation G5590 of G5590 your souls.
10 G4012 Of G3739 which G4991 salvation G4396 the prophets G1567 have inquired G2532 and G1830 searched diligently, G4395 who prophesied G4012 of G5485 the grace G1519 that should come unto G5209 you:
11 G2045 Searching G1519 G5101 what, G2228 or G4169 what manner of G2540 time G4151 the Spirit G5547 of Christ G3588 which G1722 was in G846 them G1213 did signify, G4303 when it testified G3804 beforehand the sufferings G1519 of G5547 Christ, G2532 and G1391 the glory G5023 that G3326 should follow.
12 G3739 Unto whom G601 it was revealed, G3754 that G3756 not G1438 unto themselves, G1161 but G2254 unto us G1247 they did minister G846 the things, G3739 which G312 are G3568 now G312 reported G5213 unto you G1223 by G3588 them G2097 that have preached the gospel G5209 unto you G1722 with G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G649 sent down G575 from G3772 heaven; G3739 which things G32 the angels G1937 desire G3879 to look G1519 into.
13 G1352 Therefore G328 prepare G3751 G5216 your G1271 mind, G3525 be sober, G1679 and hope G5049 to the end G1909 for G5485 the grace G5342 that is to be brought G5213 unto you G1722 at G602 the revelation G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ;
14 G5613 As G5218 obedient G5043 sons, G3361 not G4964 fashioning yourselves according to G4386 the former G1939 lusts G1722 in G5216 your G52 ignorance:
15 G235 But G2596 as G2564 he who has called G5209 you G40 is holy, G2532 so G1096 be G846 G40 holy G1722 in G3956 all G391 manner of living;
17 G2532 And G1487 if G1941 you call on G3962 the Father, G3588 who G678 without respect of persons G2919 judges G2596 according to G1538 every man's G2041 work, G390 pass G5550 the time G5216 of your G3940 staying G1722 here as strangers in G5401 fear:
18 G1492 Forasmuch as you know G3754 that G3084 you were G3756 not G3084 redeemed G5349 with corruptible things, G694 as silver G2228 and G5553 gold, G1537 from G5216 your G3152 vain G391 way G3970 of life received by tradition from your fathers;
19 G235 But G5093 with the precious G129 blood G5547 of Christ, G5613 as G286 of a lamb G299 without blemish G2532 and G784 without spot:
20 G3303 Who truly G4267 was foreordained G4253 before G2602 the foundation G2889 of the world, G1161 but G5319 was revealed G1909 in G2078 these last G5550 times G1223 for G5209 you,
21 G3588 Who G1223 by G846 him G4100 do believe G1519 in G2316 God, G3588 that G1453 raised G846 him G1453 up G1537 from G3498 the dead, G2532 and G1325 gave G846 him G1391 glory; G5620 that G5216 your G4102 faith G2532 and G1680 hope G1511 might be G1519 in G2316 God.
22 G48 Seeing you have purified G5216 your G5590 souls G1722 in G5218 obeying G225 the truth G1223 through G4151 the Spirit G1519 unto G505 unfeigned G5360 love of the brothers, G25 see that you love G240 one another G1537 with G2513 a pure G2588 heart G1619 fervently:
23 G313 Being born again, G3756 not G1537 of G5349 corruptible G4701 seed, G235 but G862 of incorruptible, G1223 by G3056 the word G2316 of God, G2198 which lives G2532 and G3306 stays G1519 for G165 ever.
24 G1360 For G3956 all G4561 flesh G5613 is as G5528 grass, G2532 and G3956 all G1391 the glory G444 of man G5613 as G438 the flower G5528 of grass. G5528 The grass G3583 withers, G2532 and G438 the flower G846 there G1601 falls away:
