1 Peter 1:8; 1 Peter 1:14; 1 Peter 2:16; 1 Peter 3:6-7; 1 Peter 3:9-10; 1 Peter 3:14; 1 Peter 4:4; 1 Peter 4:12; 1 Peter 4:15-16; 1 Peter 5:2
Whom having not seen , ye love ; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing , ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory :
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are , as long as ye do well , and are not afraid with any amazement.
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered .
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called , that ye should inherit a blessing .
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled ;
Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed ; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
