Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Peter, apostle of Jesus Christ, to the chosen men, to the comelings of scattering abroad [to the chosen comelings of dispersion, or scattering abroad], of Pontus, of Galatia, of Cappadocia, of Asia, and of Bithynia, 1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God's elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia,
2 by the before-knowing of God, the Father, in hallowing of Spirit, by obedience, and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, grace and peace be multiplied to you. [after the prescience of God, the Father, into hallowing of the Spirit, into obedience, and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ, grace and peace to you be multiplied.] 2 who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance.
3 Blessed be God, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which by his great mercy [which after his great mercy] begat us again into living hope, by the again-rising of Jesus Christ from death [by the again-rising of Jesus Christ from dead], 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 into heritage uncorruptible, and undefouled, and that shall not fade, that is kept in heavens for you [kept in heavens for you], 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you,
5 that in the virtue of God be kept by the faith into health, and is ready to be showed in the last time [made ready to be showed in the last time]. 5 who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 In which ye shall make joy, though it behooveth now a little to be sorry in diverse temptations; 6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
7 that the proving of your faith be much more precious than gold, that is proved by fire; and be found into praising, and glory, and honour, in the revelation of Jesus Christ. 7 These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8 Whom when ye have not seen, ye love; into whom also now ye not seeing, believe; but ye that believe shall have joy, and gladness that may not be told out, and ye shall be glorified [forsooth ye believing shall have joy withoutforth in gladness unnarrable, that is, that may not be told out, and glorified], 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
9 and have the end of your faith, the health of your souls. [bringing again the end of your faith, the health of your souls.] 9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
10 Of which health prophets sought, and searched into, that prophesied of the grace to coming in you, [Of which health prophets sought out, and ensearched, that prophesied of the grace to come into you,] 10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care,
11 and sought which either what manner time the Spirit of Christ signified in them, and before-told those passions, that be in Christ, and the latter glories. [seeking which or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ signified in them, before-telling the passions, that be in Christ, and the latter glories.] 11 trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.
12 To which it was showed [To whom it is showed], for not to themselves, but to you they ministered those things, that now be told to you by them that preached to you [that now be told to you by them that evangelized to you] by the Holy Ghost sent from heaven, into whom angels desire to behold. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.
13 For which thing be ye gird the loins of your soul, sober, perfect, and hope ye into that grace that is proffered to you by the showing of Jesus Christ [and hope ye into that grace that is offered to you by the revelation, or showing, of Jesus Christ], 13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.
14 as sons of obedience, not made like to the former desires of your unknowingness, [as sons of obedience, not together likened to the former desires of your ignorance,] 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
15 but like him that hath called you holy; that also ye self be holy in all living [that and yourselves be holy in all living]; 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;
16 for it is written, Ye shall be holy, for I am holy. 16 for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."
17 And if ye inwardly call him Father, which deemeth without acception of persons by the work of each man [the which without acception of persons deemeth after the work of each man], live ye in dread in the time of your pilgrimage [in earth]; 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.
18 witting that not by corruptible gold, either silver [or silver], ye be bought again of your vain living of fathers' tradition, 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers,
19 but by the precious blood as of the lamb undefouled and unspotted, Christ Jesus, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
20 that was known before the making of the world, but he is showed in the last times, for you 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
21 that by him be faithful in God; that raised him from death [that raised him from dead men], and gave to him everlasting glory, that your faith and hope were in God. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
22 And make ye chaste your souls in obedience of charity [Ye making chaste your souls in obedience of charity], in love of brotherhood; of simple heart love ye together more busily. 22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.
23 And be ye born again, not of corruptible seed, but [of] uncorruptible, by the word of living God, and dwelling into without end. 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
24 For each flesh is hay, and all the glory of it is as the flower of hay; the hay dried up, and his flower felled down [+the hay drieth up, and the flower fell down]; 24 For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25 but the word of the Lord dwelleth without end [into without end]. And this is the word, that is preached to you [Soothly this is the word, that is evangelized to you]. 25 but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.
