Deus nos chamou
We know, further, that, unto them who love God, God causeth all things to work together for good,unto them who, according to purpose, are such as he hath called;
For, whom he fore-approved, he also fore-appointed to be conformed unto the image of his Son, that he might be firstborn among many brethren,
And, whom he fore-appointed, the same, he also called, and, whom he called, the same, he also declared righteous, and, whom he declared righteous, the same, he also made glorious:
Before I formed thee at thy birth, I took knowledge of thee, And before thy nativity, I hallowed thee,A prophet to the nations, I appointed thee.
Wherefore, all the more, brethren, give diligence to be making, firm, your calling and election; for, these things, doing, in nowise shall ye stumble at any time,
For, thus, shall richly be further supplied unto youthe entrance into the age-abiding kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Who hath rescued us out of the authority of the darkness, and translated into the kingdom of the Son of his love;
In whom, we have our redemptionthe remission of our sins,
No one, can come unto me, except, the Father who sent me, draw him,and, I, will raise him up, in the last day.
Hearken! my brethren beloved:Hath not, God, chosen the destitute in the world rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
And Peter unto themRepent ye, and let each one of you be immersed, in the name of Jesus Christ, into the remission of your sins,and ye shall receive the free-gift of the Holy Spirit;
For, unto you, is the promise, and unto your children,and unto all them who are afar off: as many soever as the Lord our God shall call unto him.
Be not thou, therefore, put to shamewith regard to the witness of our Lord, nor with regard to me his prisoner; but suffer hardship together with the glad-message according to the power of God,
Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to the peculiar purpose and favourwhich was given to us in Christ Jesus before age-during times,
But hath now been made manifest through means of the forthshining of our Saviour Christ Jesus,Who, indeed, hath abolished death, and hath thrown light upon life and incorruptibility, through means of the glad-message:
For, many, are called, but, few, chosen.
Howbeit, the God of all favourwho hath called you unto his age-abiding glory in Christwhen, for a little, ye have suffered, Himself, will adjust, confirm, strengthen:
For be looking at the calling of you, brethren,that not many wise, according to flesh. Not many powerful, not many high-born:
On the contrarythe foolish things of the world, hath God chosen, that he might put to shame them who are wise, and, the weak things of the world, hath God chosen, that he might put to shame the things that are mighty,
The eyes of your heart having been enlightened, that ye may knowwhat is the hope of his calling, what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
And what the surpassing greatness of his power unto us who believe,according to the energy of the grasp of his might
Being persuaded of this very thingthat, he who hath begun in you a good work, will perfect it, until the day of Jesus Christ;
