1 G4074 Peter, G652 an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G3927 to the chosen ones who are living as foreigners G1290 in the Dispersion in G4195 Pontus, G1053 Galatia, G2587 Cappadocia, G773 Asia, G2532 and G1588 Bithynia,
2 G2596 according to G4268 the foreknowledge G2316 of God G3962 the Father, G1722 in G38 sanctification G4151 of the Spirit, G1519 that G5218 you may obey G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2532 and G4473 be sprinkled G129 with his blood: G5485 Grace G5213 to 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 great G1656 mercy G313 became G2248 our G313 father again G1519 to G2198 a living G1680 hope G1223 through G386 the resurrection G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G1537 from G3498 the dead,
4 G1519 to G862 an incorruptible G2532 and G283 undefiled G2817 inheritance G2532 that G263 doesn't fade away, G5083 reserved G1722 in G3772 Heaven G1519 for G5209 you,
5 G3588 who G1722 by G1411 the power G2316 of God G5432 are guarded G1223 through G4102 faith G1519 for G4991 a salvation G2092 ready G601 to be revealed G1722 in G2078 the last G2540 time.
6 G1722 Wherein G21 you greatly rejoice, G737 though now G3641 for a little while, G1487 if G1163 need be, G2076 you have been G3076 put to grief G1722 in G4164 various G3986 trials,
7 G2443 that G1383 the proof G5216 of your G4102 faith, G4183 which is more G5093 precious G5553 than gold G3588 that G622 perishes G1161 even though G1381 it is tested G1223 by G4442 fire, G2147 may be found G1519 to G1519 result in G1868 praise, G1391 glory, G2532 and G5092 honor G1722 at G602 the revelation G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ—
8 G3739 whom G3756 not G1492 having G1492 known G25 you love; G1519 in G3739 whom, G737 though now G3361 you don't G3708 see G1161 him, yet G4100 believing, G21 you rejoice G5479 greatly with joy G412 unspeakable G2532 and G1392 full of glory —
9 G2865 receiving G5056 the result G5216 of your G4102 faith, G4991 the salvation G5590 of G5590 your souls.
10 G4012 Concerning G3739 this G4991 salvation, G4396 the prophets G1567 sought G2532 and G1830 searched diligently, G4395 who prophesied G4012 of G5485 the grace G1519 that would come to G5209 you,
11 G2045 searching G1519 for G5101 who G2228 or G4169 what kind of G2540 time G4151 the Spirit G5547 of Christ, G3588 which G1722 was in G846 them, G1213 pointed G4303 to, when he predicted G3804 the sufferings G1519 of G5547 Christ, G2532 and G1391 the glories G5023 that G3326 would follow them.
12 G3739 To them G601 it was revealed, G3754 that G3756 not G1438 to themselves, G1161 but G2254 to you, G1247 they ministered G846 these things, G3739 which G3568 now G312 have been G312 announced G5213 to you G1223 through G3588 those G2097 who preached the Good News G5209 to you G1722 by G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G575 sent out G575 from G3772 heaven; G3739 which things G32 angels G1937 desire G3879 to look G1519 into.
13 G1352 Therefore, G328 prepare G3751 G5216 your G1271 minds G3525 for action, be sober G1679 and set your hope G5049 fully G1909 on G5485 the grace G5342 that will be brought G5213 to you G1722 at G602 the revelation G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ—
14 G5613 as G5043 children G5218 of obedience, G3361 not G4964 conforming yourselves according to G4386 your former G1939 lusts G1722 as in G5216 your G52 ignorance,
15 G235 but G2532 just G2596 as G2564 he who called G5209 you G40 is holy, G846 you G1096 yourselves also be G40 holy G1722 in G3956 all G391 of your behavior;
16 G1360 because G1125 it is written, G1096 "You G40 shall be holy; G3754 for G1473 I G1510 am G40 holy."
17 G2532 G1487 If G1941 you call on G3962 him as Father, G3588 who G678 without respect of persons G2919 judges G2596 according to G1538 each man's G2041 work, G390 pass G5550 the time G5216 of your G3940 living G1722 as foreigners here in G5401 reverent fear:
18 G1492 knowing G3754 that G3084 you were G3084 redeemed, G3756 not G5349 with corruptible things, G694 with silver G2228 or G5553 gold, G1537 from G3152 the useless G391 way of life G5216 handed down from your G3970 fathers,
19 G235 but G5093 with precious G5613 blood, as G299 of a faultless G2532 and G784 pure G286 lamb, G129 the blood G5547 of Christ;
20 G4267 who was foreknown G3303 indeed G4253 before G2602 the foundation G2889 of the world, G1161 but G5319 was revealed G1909 at G2078 the end G5550 of times G1223 for G5209 your sake,
21 G3588 who G1223 through G846 him G4100 are believers G1519 in G2316 God, G3588 who G1453 raised G846 him G1453 G1537 from G3498 the dead, G2532 and G1325 gave G846 him G1391 glory; G5620 so 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 your obedience G225 to the truth G1223 through G4151 the Spirit G505 in sincere G5360 brotherly G25 affection, G25 love G240 one another G1537 from G2513 the G2588 heart G1619 fervently:
23 G313 having been born again, G3756 not G1537 of G5349 corruptible G4701 seed, G235 but G862 of incorruptible, G1223 through G3056 the word G2316 of God, G2198 which lives G2532 and G3306 remains G1519 G165 forever.
24 G1360 For, G3956 "All G4561 flesh G5613 is like G5528 grass, G2532 and G3956 all G444 of man's G1391 glory G5613 like G438 the flower G5528 in the grass. G5528 The grass G3583 withers, G2532 and G846 its G438 flower G1601 falls;
