1FROM Peter, apostle of Jesus Christ, to the scattered people of God now living as aliens in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

2chosen in the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the consecrating work of the Holy Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling with his blood. Grace and peace to you in fullest measure.

Peter gives thanks

3PRAISED be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, he gave us new birth into a living hope,

4the hope of an inheritance, reserved in heaven for you, which nothing can destroy or spoil or wither.

5Because you put your faith in God, you are under the protection of his power until the salvation now in readiness is revealed at the end of time.

6This is cause for great joy, even though for a little while you may have had to suffer trials of many kinds.

7Even gold passes through the assayer's fire, and much more precious than perishable gold is faith which stands the test. These trials come so that your faith may prove itself worthy of all praise, glory, and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed.

8You have not seen him, yet you love him; and trusting in him now without seeing him, you are filled with a glorious joy too great for words,

9while you are reaping the harvest of your faith, that is, salvation for your souls.

The calling of a Christian

10THIS salvation was the subject of intense search by the prophets who prophesied about the grace of God awaiting you.

11They tried to find out the time and the circumstances to which the spirit of Christ in them pointed, when it foretold the sufferings in Christ's cause and the glories to follow.

12It was disclosed to them that these matters were not for their benefit but for yours. Now they have been openly announced to you through preachers who brought you the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. These are things that angels long to glimpse.

13Your minds must therefore be stripped for action and fully alert. Fix your hopes on the grace which is to be yours when Jesus Christ is revealed.

14Be obedient to God your Father, and do not let your characters be shaped any longer by the desires you cherished in your days of ignorance.

15He who called you is holy; like him, be holy in all your conduct.

16Does not scripture say, “You shall be holy, for I am holy”?

17If you say “Father” to him who judges everyone impartially on the basis of what they have done, you must live in awe of him during your time on earth.

18You know well that it was nothing of passing value, like silver or gold, that bought your freedom from the futility of your traditional ways.

19You were set free by Christ's precious blood, blood like that of a lamb without mark or blemish.

20He was predestined before the foundation of the world, but in this last period of time he has been revealed for your sake.

21Through him you have come to trust in God who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, and so your faith and hope are fixed on God.

22Now that you have purified your souls by obedience to the truth until you feel sincere affection towards your fellow-Christians, love one another wholeheartedly with all your strength.

23You have been born again, not of mortal but of immortal parentage, through the living and enduring word of God.

24As scripture says: All mortals are like grass; all their glory like the flower of the field; the grass withers, the flower falls;

25but the word of the Lord endures for evermore. And this “word” is the gospel which was preached to you.
