1 G4074 Peter G652 , an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G3927 , to the sojourners G1290 scattered G4195 throughout Pontus G1053 , Galatia G2587 , Cappadocia G773 , Asia G2532 , and G978 Bithynia,
2 G1588 Elect G2596 according G4268 to the foreknowledge G2316 of God G3962 the Father G1722 , through G38 sanctification G4151 of the Spirit G1519 , to G5218 obedience G2532 and G4473 sprinkling G129 of the blood G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G5485 : Grace G5213 to you G2532 , and G1515 peace G4129 [G5684] , be multiplied.
3 G2128 Blessed G2316 be the God G2532 and G3962 Father G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G3588 , who G2596 according to G846 his G4183 abundant G1656 mercy G313 0 hath begotten G2248 us G313 [G5660] again G1519 to G2198 [G5723] 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 fadeth not away G5083 [G5772] , reserved G1722 in G3772 heaven G1519 for G5209 you,
5 G3588 Who G5432 [G5746] are kept G1722 by G1411 the power G2316 of God G1223 through G4102 faith G1519 to G4991 salvation G2092 ready G601 [G5683] to be revealed G1722 in G2078 the last G2540 time.
6 G1722 In G3739 this G21 [G5736] ye leap for joy G737 , though now G3641 for a season G1487 , if G1163 [G5752] need G2076 [G5748] be G3076 [G5685] , ye are in heaviness G1722 through G4164 various G3986 temptations:
7 G2443 That G1383 the trial G5216 of your G4102 faith G4183 , being much G5093 more precious G5553 than of gold G622 [G5734] that perisheth G1223 G1161 , though G1381 [G5746] tried G4442 with fire G2147 [G5686] , might be found G1519 to G1868 praise G2532 and G5092 honour G2532 and G1391 glory G1722 in G602 the revelation G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ:
8 G3739 Whom G1492 0 having G3756 not G1492 G1492 [G5761] seen G25 [G5719] , ye love G1519 ; in G3739 whom G737 , though now G3708 [G5723] ye see G3361 him not G1161 , yet G4100 [G5723] believing G21 [G5736] , ye leap for joy G5479 with joy G412 unspeakable G2532 and G1392 [G5772] full of glory:
9 G2865 [G5734] Receiving G5056 the end G5216 of your G4102 faith G4991 , even the salvation G5590 of your souls.
10 G4012 Of G3739 this G4991 salvation G4396 the prophets G1567 [G5656] have enquired G2532 and G1830 [G5656] searched diligently G3588 , who G4395 [G5660] prophesied G4012 of G5485 the grace G1519 that should come to G5209 you:
11 G2045 [G5723] Searching G1519 G5101 what G2228 , or G4169 what manner G2540 of time G4151 the Spirit G5547 of Christ G3588 who G1722 was in G846 them G1213 [G5707] did signify G4303 [G5740] , when he testified beforehand G3804 the sufferings G1519 of G5547 Christ G2532 , and G1391 the glory G3326 G5023 that should follow.
12 G3739 To whom G601 [G5681] it was revealed G3754 , that G3756 not G1438 to themselves G1161 , but G2254 to us G1247 [G5707] they ministered G846 the things G3739 , which G312 0 are G3568 now G312 [G5648] reported G5213 to you G1223 by G2097 [G5671] them that have preached the gospel G5209 to you G1722 with G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G649 [G5651] sent down G575 from G3772 heaven G3739 ; which things G32 the angels G1937 [G5719] desire G3879 [G5658] to look G1519 into.
13 G1352 Therefore G328 [G5671] girding up G3588 the G3751 loins G5216 of your G1271 mind G3525 [G5723] , being sober G1679 [G5657] , place your expectation G5049 completely G1909 upon G3588 the G5485 grace G5342 [G5746] being brought G5213 to you G1722 at G602 the revealing G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ;
14 G5613 As G5218 obedient G5043 children G3361 , not G4964 [G5730] fashioning yourselves according to G4386 the former G1939 lusts G1722 in G5216 your G52 ignorance:
15 G235 But G2596 as G2564 [G5660] he who hath called G5209 you G40 is holy G2532 , so G1096 [G5676] be G846 ye G40 holy G1722 in G3956 all G391 your behaviour;
16 G1360 Because G1125 [G5769] it is written G1096 [G5634] , Be ye G40 holy G3754 ; for G1473 I G1510 [G5748] am G40 holy.
17 G2532 And G1487 if G1941 [G5731] ye call on G3962 the Father G3588 , who G678 without respect of persons G2919 [G5723] judgeth G2596 according to G1538 every man's G2041 work G390 [G5649] , pass G5550 the time G5216 of your G3940 sojourning G1722 here in G5401 fear:
18 G1492 [G5761] Forasmuch as ye know G3754 that G3084 0 ye were G3756 not G3084 [G5681] redeemed G5349 with corruptible things G694 , as silver G2228 and G5553 gold G1537 , from G5216 your G3152 vain G391 way of life 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 [G5772] was foreordained G4253 before G2602 the foundation G2889 of the world G1161 , but G5319 [G5685] was revealed G1909 in G2078 these last G5550 times G1223 for G5209 you,
21 G3588 Who G1223 by G846 him G4100 [G5723] do believe G1519 in G2316 God G1453 0 , that raised G846 G1453 [G5660] him G1537 from G3498 the dead G2532 , and G1325 [G5631] gave G846 him G1391 glory G5620 ; that G5216 your G4102 faith G2532 and G1680 hope G1511 [G5750] might be G1519 in G2316 God.
22 G48 [G5761] Seeing ye have purified G5216 your G5590 souls G1722 in G5218 obeying G225 the truth G1223 through G4151 the Spirit G1519 to G505 a sincere G5360 love of the brethren G25 [G5657] , see that ye love G240 one another G1537 with G2513 a pure G2588 heart G1619 fervently:
23 G313 [G5746] Being born again G3756 , not G1537 from out of G5349 a corruptible G4701 sowing of seed G235 , but G862 of incorruptible G1223 , by G3056 the word G2316 of God G2198 [G5723] living G2532 and G3306 [G5723] abiding G1519 to G3588 the G165 age.
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 [G5681] withereth G2532 , and G846 its G438 flower G1601 [G5627] falleth away:
