3 At one timez we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindnessa and love of God our Saviorb appeared,c 5 he saved us,d not because of righteous things we had done,e but because of his mercy.f He saved us through the washingg of rebirth and renewalh by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on usi generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace,j we might become heirsk having the hopel of eternal life.m 8 This is a trustworthy saying.n And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good.o These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.
