foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, and manifested in the last times because of you,
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.
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,
being begotten again, not out of seed corruptible, but incorruptible, through a word of God -- living and remaining -- to the age;
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,
and the saying of the Lord doth remain -- to the age; and this is the saying that was proclaimed good news to you.
