View In My Bible
15 but a1like the Holy One who called you, b2be holy yourselves also 3in all your behavior; 16 because it is written, "4YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY." 17 If you 5address as Father the One who 6impartially 7judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves 8in fear during the time of your 9stay on earth; 18 knowing that you were not c10redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your 11futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious 12blood, as of a 13lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. 20 For He was 14foreknown before 15the foundation of the world, but has 16appeared din these last times 17for the sake of you 21 who through Him are 18believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and 19gave Him glory, so that your faith and 20hope are in God. 22 Since you have 21in obedience to the truth 22purified your souls for a e23sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from fthe heart, 23 for you have been 24born again 25not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring 26word of God. 24 For, "27ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, 25 28BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER." And this is 29the word which was gpreached to you.
