||New International Version (NIV)
14 This signet from God is the first installment on what's coming, a reminder that we'll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.
14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession--to the praise of his glory.
