He was destineda before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the times for you
who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the deadb and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
By obedience to the truth,c having purified yourselvesd for sincere love of the brothers, love one anothere earnestly from a puref heart,
since you have been born again-not of perishable seed but of imperishableg-through the living and enduring word of God.
For All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like a flower of the grass. The grass withers, and the flower drops off,
but the word of the Lord endures forever. hi And this is the word that was preached as the gospel to you.
