1 Peter 1:20; 1 Peter 2:4; 1 Peter 2:14; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 Peter 4:6; 1 Peter 4:14
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
