22 Since you have ain obedience to the truth bpurified your souls for a 1csincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from 2the heart, 23 for you have been aborn again bnot of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring cword of God. 24 For,
“aAll flesh is like grass,
And all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
And the flower falls off,
25 aBut the word of the Lord endures forever.”
