1 aPeter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
2 according to the aforeknowledge of God the Father, bby the sanctifying work of the Spirit, 1to cobey Jesus Christ and be dsprinkled with His blood: eMay grace and peace 2be yours in the fullest measure.
7 so that the 1aproof of your faith, being more precious than gold which 2is perishable, beven though tested by fire, cmay be found to result in praise and glory and honor at dthe revelation of Jesus Christ;
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.
16 because it is written, “aYou shall be holy, for I am holy.”
“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.”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
