1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Anointed, to chosen ones sojourners of a dispersion of Pontus, of Galatia, of Cappadocia, of Asia and of Bithynia,
2 according to foreknowledge of God a Father, in sanctification of spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of blood of Jesus Anointed; favor to you and peace may be multiplied.
3 Blessed the God and Father of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed, that according to the great of himself mercy having begotten us to a hope of life through a resurrection of Jesus Anointed, out of dead ones,
4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and unfading, having been kept in heavens for you,
5 those by power of God being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in season last;
6 in which rejoice you, a little while now (if necessary it is) having been distressed by manifold trials,
7 so that the proof of you of the faith much more precious of gold of that perishing, by means of fire but being proved, may be found to praise and honor and glory, at a revelation of Jesus Anointed;
8 whom not seeing you love, on whom, now not looking, believing but, you rejoice with a joy unspeakable and having been glorified,
9 obtaining the end of the faith of you, a salvation of souls.
10 Concerning which salvation sought out and examined closely prophets, those concerning the for you favor having prophesied;
11 examining, to what things or what season did point the in them spirit of Anointed, testifying before the for Anointed sufferings, and the after these things glorious;
12 to whom it was revealed, that not for themselves, for you but they ministered these things, which things now were told to you through those having announced glad tidings you with spirit holy having been sent from heaven, into which things earnestly desire messengers to look attentively.
13 Therefore having girded up the loins of the minds of you, being vigilant, perfectly do you hope for the being brought to you gift in a revelation of Jesus Anointed;
14 as children of obedience, not conforming yourselves to the former in the ignorance of you lusts,
15 but according to the one having called you holy, and yourselves holy ones in all conduct become you;
16 because it has been written: Holy ones become you, because I holy am.
17 And if a Father you call on him without respect of persons judging according to the of each work, in fear the of the sojourning of you time pass you;
18 knowing, that not by corruptible things, by silver or by gold you were bought off from the foolish of you conduct handed down from your fathers,
19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb spotless and unblemished, of Anointed;
20 having been foreknown indeed before a laying down of a world, having been manifested but in last of the times on account of you,
21 those through him having believed in God, that one having raised up him out of dead ones and glory to him having given, so that the faith of you and hope to be in God.
22 The lives of you having been purified in the obedience of the truth through spirit to brotherly kindness unfeigned, out of a pure heart each other love you intensely;
23 having been begotten again not from seed corruptible, but incorruptible, through word living of God and remaining.
24 Because all flesh like grass, and all glory of her like a flower of grass; withered the grass and the flower of it fell off;
25 the but word of Lord abides to the age; this now is the word that having been announced to you.
