Who verily was fore-ordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifested in these last times for you,
Who by him do believe in God, that raised him from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently:
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and its flower falleth away:
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached to you.
