3 1Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who 2according to His great mercy 3has caused us to be born again to 4a living hope through the 5resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 to obtain an 6inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and 7will not fade away, 8reserved in heaven for you,
5 who are 9protected by the power of God 10through faith for 11a salvation ready 12to be revealed in the last time.
