1 Peter 1:8–19

8 and athough you have not seen Him, you blove Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and 1full of glory,

9 obtaining as athe outcome of your faith the salvation of 1your souls.

10 aAs to this salvation, the prophets who bprophesied of the cgrace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries,

11 1seeking to know what person or time athe Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He bpredicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories 2to follow.

12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who apreached the gospel to you by bthe Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which cangels long to 1look.

13 Therefore, 1aprepare your minds for action, 2bkeep sober in spirit, fix your chope completely on the dgrace 3to be brought to you at ethe revelation of Jesus Christ.

14 As 1aobedient children, do not 2bbe conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your cignorance,

15 but 1alike the Holy One who called you, 2bbe holy yourselves also cin all your behavior;

16 because it is written, “aYou shall be holy, for I am holy.”

17 If you aaddress as Father the One who bimpartially cjudges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves din fear during the time of your estay on earth;

18 knowing that you were not 1aredeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your bfutile way of life inherited from your forefathers,

19 but with precious ablood, as of a blamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
