who through faith are shielded by God's power1 until the coming of the salvation2 that is ready to be revealed3 in the last time.
In this you greatly rejoice,4 though now for a little while5 you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.67
These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire7--may be proved genuine8 and may result in praise, glory and honor9 when Jesus Christ is revealed.108
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him11 and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.12
