View In My Bible
6 1In this you greatly rejoice, even though now 2for a little while, 3if necessary, you have been distressed by 4various atrials, 7 so that the b5proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which cis perishable, 6even though tested by fire, 7may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at 8the revelation of Jesus Christ; 8 and 9though you have not seen Him, you 10love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and dfull of glory, 9 obtaining as 11the outcome of your faith the salvation of eyour souls. 10 12As to this salvation, the prophets who 13prophesied of the 14grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 fseeking to know what person or time 15the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He 16predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories gto follow . 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who 17preached the gospel to you by 18the Holy Spirit sent from heaven -things into which 19angels long to hlook. 13 Therefore, i20prepare your minds for action, j21keep sober in spirit, fix your 22hope completely on the 23grace kto be brought to you at 24the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As l25obedient children, do not m26be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your 27ignorance, 15 but n28like the Holy One who called you, o29be holy yourselves also 30in all your behavior; 16 because it is written, "31YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY."
