New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
5 And God, in his mighty power, will protect you until you receive this salvation, because you are trusting him. It will be revealed on the last day for all to see. 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 So be truly glad! There is wonderful joy ahead, even though it is necessary for you to endure many trials for a while. 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 These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold -- and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. 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.
