1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the choice sojourners of the dispersion of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and 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 according to a foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, to obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace 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 [is] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to the abundance of His kindness did beget us again to a living hope, through the rising again of Jesus Christ out of the 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 to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and unfading, reserved in the heavens for you, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you,
5 who, in the power of God are being guarded, through faith, unto salvation, ready to be revealed 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 are glad, a little now, if it be necessary, being made to sorrow in manifold trials, 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 proof of your faith -- much more precious than of gold that is perishing, and through fire being approved -- may be found to praise, and honour, and glory, 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, not having seen, ye love, in whom, now not seeing and believing, ye are glad with joy unspeakable 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 receiving the end of your faith -- salvation of souls; 9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
10 concerning which salvation seek out and search out did prophets who concerning the grace toward you did prophecy, 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 searching in regard to what or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ that was in them was manifesting, testifying beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glory after these, 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 whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us they were ministering these, which now were told to you (through those who did proclaim good news to you,) in the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, to which things messengers do desire to bend looking. 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 Wherefore having girded up the loins of your mind, being sober, hope perfectly upon the grace that is being brought to you in the revelation 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 obedient children, not fashioning yourselves to the former desires in your ignorance, 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
15 but according as He who did call you [is] holy, ye also, become holy in all behaviour, 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;
16 because it hath been written, `Become ye holy, because I am holy;' 16 for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."
17 and if on the Father ye do call, who without acceptance of persons is judging according to the work of each, in fear the time of your sojourn pass ye, 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.
18 having known that, not with corruptible things -- silver or gold -- were ye redeemed from your foolish behaviour delivered by fathers, 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 with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and unspotted -- Christ's -- 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
20 foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, and manifested in the last times because of you, 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
21 who through him do believe in God, who did raise out of the dead, and glory to him did give, so that your faith and hope may be 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 Your souls having purified in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to brotherly love unfeigned, out of a pure heart one another love ye earnestly, 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 being begotten again, not out of seed corruptible, but incorruptible, through a word of God -- living and remaining -- to the age; 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
24 because all flesh [is] as grass, and all glory of man as flower of grass; wither did the grass, and the flower of it fell away, 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 and the saying of the Lord doth remain -- to the age; and this is the saying that was proclaimed good news to you. 25 but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.
