5 1He saved us, 2not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but 3according to His mercy, by the 4washing of regeneration and 5renewing by the Holy Spirit,
6 6whom He poured out upon us 7richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made 8heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
