4 But when the 8kindness of 9God our Savior and His love for mankind 10appeared,
5 11He saved us, 12not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but 13according to His mercy, by the 14washing of regeneration and 15renewing by the Holy Spirit,
6 16whom He poured out upon us 17richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made 18heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
