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.


This inheritance

is reserved in heaven for you, 

who by God’s power are protected

through faith

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)
