A Psalm of Peter: A Living Hope
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
By his great mercy he gave us
new birth into a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
that is, into an inheritance
imperishable, undefiled, and unfading.
is reserved in heaven for you,
who by God’s power are protected
for a salvation ready to be revealed
in the last time.
You have not seen him, but you love him.
You do not see him now
but you believe in him,
and so you rejoice
with an indescribable and glorious joy,
because you are attaining
the goal of your faith—
the salvation of your souls.
(1 Peter 1:3-5, 8-9 NET Bible)
