2 G1588 Elect G2596 according G4268 to 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 [G5684] .
3 G2128 Blessed G2316 be the God G2532 and G3962 Father G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G3588 , which G2596 according to G846 his G4183 abundant G1656 mercy G313 hath begotten G2248 us G313 again [G5660] G1519 unto G2198 a lively [G5723] 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 fadeth not away G5083 , reserved [G5772] G1722 in G3772 heaven G1519 for G5209 you,
5 G3588 Who G5432 are kept [G5746] G1722 by G1411 the power G2316 of God G1223 through G4102 faith G1519 unto G4991 salvation G2092 ready G601 to be revealed [G5683] G1722 in G2078 the last G2540 time.
6 G1722 Wherein G3739 G21 ye greatly rejoice [G5736] G737 , though now G3641 for a season G1487 , if G1163 need [G5752] G2076 be [G5748] G3076 , ye are in heaviness [G5685] G1722 through G4164 manifold G3986 temptations:
7 G2443 That G1383 the trial G5216 of your G4102 faith G4183 , being much G5093 more precious G5553 than of gold G622 that perisheth [G5734] G1223 , though G1161 G1381 it be tried [G5746] G4442 with fire G2147 , might be found [G5686] G1519 unto G1868 praise G2532 and G5092 honour G2532 and G1391 glory G1722 at G602 the appearing G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ:
8 G3739 Whom G1492 having G3756 not G1492 seen [G5761] [G5625] G1492 [G5631] G25 , ye love [G5719] G1519 ; in G3739 whom G737 , though now G3708 ye see [G5723] G3361 him not G1161 , yet G4100 believing [G5723] G21 , ye rejoice [G5736] G5479 with joy G412 unspeakable G2532 and G1392 full of glory [G5772] :
9 G2865 Receiving [G5734] G5056 the end G5216 of your G4102 faith G4991 , even the salvation G5590 of your souls.
10 G4012 Of G3739 which G4991 salvation G4396 the prophets G1567 have enquired [G5656] G2532 and G1830 searched diligently [G5656] G3588 , who G4395 prophesied [G5660] G4012 of G5485 the grace G1519 that should come unto G5209 you:
11 G2045 Searching [G5723] G1519 what G5101 G2228 , or G4169 what manner G2540 of time G4151 the Spirit G5547 of Christ G3588 which G1722 was in G846 them G1213 did signify [G5707] G4303 , when it testified beforehand [G5740] G3804 the sufferings G1519 of G5547 Christ G2532 , and G1391 the glory G3326 that should follow G5023 .
12 G3739 Unto whom G601 it was revealed [G5681] G3754 , that G3756 not G1438 unto themselves G1161 , but G2254 unto us G1247 they did minister [G5707] G846 the things G3739 , which G312 are G3568 now G312 reported [G5648] G5213 unto you G1223 by G2097 them that have preached the gospel [G5671] G5209 unto you G1722 with G40 the Holy G4151 Ghost G649 sent down [G5651] G575 from G3772 heaven G3739 ; which things G32 the angels G1937 desire [G5719] G3879 to look [G5658] G1519 into.
13 G1352 Wherefore G328 gird up [G5671] G3751 the loins G5216 of your G1271 mind G3525 , be sober [G5723] G1679 , and hope [G5657] G5049 to the end G1909 for G5485 the grace G5342 that is to be brought [G5746] G5213 unto you G1722 at G602 the revelation G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ;
14 G5613 As G5218 obedient G5043 children G3361 , not G4964 fashioning yourselves according to [G5730] G4386 the former G1939 lusts G1722 in G5216 your G52 ignorance:
15 G235 But G2596 as G2564 he which hath called [G5660] G5209 you G40 is holy G2532 , so G1096 be [G5676] G846 ye G40 holy G1722 in G3956 all G391 manner of conversation;
16 G1360 Because G1125 it is written [G5769] G1096 , Be ye [G5634] G40 holy G3754 ; for G1473 I G1510 am [G5748] G40 holy.
17 G2532 And G1487 if G1941 ye call on [G5731] G3962 the Father G3588 , who G678 without respect of persons G2919 judgeth [G5723] G2596 according to G1538 every man's G2041 work G390 , pass [G5649] G5550 the time G5216 of your G3940 sojourning G1722 here in G5401 fear:
18 G1492 Forasmuch as ye know [G5761] G3754 that G3084 ye were G3756 not G3084 redeemed [G5681] G5349 with corruptible things G694 , as silver G2228 and G5553 gold G1537 , from G5216 your G3152 vain G391 conversation G3970 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 verily G4267 was foreordained [G5772] G4253 before G2602 the foundation G2889 of the world G1161 , but G5319 was manifest [G5685] G1909 in G2078 these last G5550 times G1223 for G5209 you,
21 G3588 Who G1223 by G846 him G4100 do believe [G5723] G1519 in G2316 God G1453 , that raised G846 him G1453 up [G5660] G1537 from G3498 the dead G2532 , and G1325 gave [G5631] G846 him G1391 glory G5620 ; that G5216 your G4102 faith G2532 and G1680 hope G1511 might be [G5750] G1519 in G2316 God.
22 G48 Seeing ye have purified [G5761] G5216 your G5590 souls G1722 in G5218 obeying G225 the truth G1223 through G4151 the Spirit G1519 unto G505 unfeigned G5360 love of the brethren G25 , see that ye love [G5657] G240 one another G1537 with G2513 a pure G2588 heart G1619 fervently:
23 G313 Being born again [G5746] G3756 , not G1537 of G5349 corruptible G4701 seed G235 , but G862 of incorruptible G1223 , by G3056 the word G2316 of God G2198 , which liveth [G5723] G2532 and G3306 abideth [G5723] 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 withereth [G5681] G2532 , and G438 the flower G846 thereof G1601 falleth away [G5627] :
