1 Peter 5:1  2 Peter 1:4

1 1Therefore the 2aelders among you I exhort, who am a 3fellow elder and 4bwitness of the sufferings of Christ, who am also a 5partaker of the cglory to be revealed:

2 1aShepherd the 2bflock of God among you, 3coverseeing not under compulsion but dwillingly, 4according to God; not by eseeking gain through base means but eagerly;

3 Nor as 1alording it over your 2allotments but by 3becoming bpatterns of the 4flock.

4 And when the Chief aShepherd is manifested, you will receive the 1bunfading ccrown of glory.

5 In like manner, ayounger men, be bsubject to 1elders; and all of you 2gird yourselves with 3chumility toward one another, because God 4dresists the 5eproud but fgives 6ggrace to the 7hhumble.

6 Therefore abe 1bhumbled under the mighty chand of God that He may 2dexalt you in due time,

7 1aCasting 2all your 3banxiety on Him because 4it matters to Him concerning you.

8 Be 1asober; 2bwatch. Your 3cadversary, the 4ddevil, as a 5roaring elion, 6fwalks about, 7seeking someone to devour.

9 Him 1awithstand, being bfirm in your 2faith, knowing that the same 3csufferings are being accomplished among your 4brotherhood in the world.

10 1aBut the God of 2all grace, He who has bcalled you 3into His ceternal glory 4din Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a elittle while, will 5Himself 6fperfect, 7gestablish, 8hstrengthen, and 9iground you.

11 aTo Him be 1the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen.

12 Through aSilvanus, the faithful brother, as I account him, I have written to you briefly, bexhorting and 1ctestifying fully that this is the 2true grace of God; enter into this grace and dstand in it.

13 The 1co- achosen in 2Babylon and 3Mark my son greet you.

14 Greet one another with a akiss of love. 1bPeace to you all who are 2cin Christ.



1 1aSimon Peter, a 2bslave and capostle of Jesus Christ, to 3those who have been 4allotted 5dfaith 6equally precious as 7ours 8in the 9righteousness of our 10God and Savior, Jesus Christ:

2 1Grace to you and peace be 2amultiplied 3in the full 4bknowledge of God and of 5Jesus our Lord;

3 Seeing that His 1adivine power has 2granted to us 3all things which relate to 4blife and 5cgodliness, 6through the 7full knowledge of 8Him who has dcalled us 9by His own 10eglory and 11fvirtue,

4 1Through 2which He has granted to us precious and 3exceedingly great apromises that through 4these you might become bpartakers of the divine nature, 5having cescaped the 6corruption which is in the dworld 7by elust.

1 Peter 4:1  1 Peter 4:19

1 Since Christ therefore has asuffered in the flesh, you also 2barm yourselves with the 3same mind (because he who has 4suffered in the flesh has ceased from csin),

2 1aNo longer to blive the rest of the time in the flesh in the clusts of men, but in the dwill of God.

3 For the time which has passed is asufficient for you to have carried out the 1desire of the bGentiles, having gone on 2in licentiousness, lusts, debaucheries, carousings, drinking bouts, and lawless idolatries.

4 In this they think it 1strange that you are not 2running together with them into the same 3flood of adissoluteness, 4slandering you;

5 1Who will 2arender an account to bHim who is ready to 3judge the living and the dead.

6 For unto this end the gospel was announced also to 1those who are now dead, that they might be 2ajudged in the flesh according to men but live in the 3spirit according to God.

7 But the 1end of all things has drawn anear. Therefore 2be sober-minded and 3be bsober unto cprayers.

8 Above all, have afervent love among yourselves, because blove ccovers a multitude of sins.

9 Be ahospitable to one another without bmurmuring,

10 aEach one, as he has received a gift, 1ministering it among yourselves as good bstewards of the 2varied cgrace of God.

11 If anyone speaks, as speaking 1aoracles of God; if anyone ministers, as ministering out of the strength which God 2bsupplies; that in all things God may be cglorified 3through Jesus Christ, dto whom is the 4glory and the might forever and ever. Amen.

12 Beloved, do not think that the 1afiery ordeal among you, coming to you for a 2btrial, is 3strange, as if it were a 3strange thing happening to you;

13 But inasmuch as you share in the asufferings of Christ, brejoice, so that also at the crevelation of His glory you may rejoice dexultingly.

14 If you are areproached in the 1name of bChrist, you are cblessed, because 2the Spirit of glory and of God 3rests upon you.

15 For let none of you asuffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a 1bmeddler into others’ affairs;

16 But if as a 1aChristian, let him not be bashamed, but let him 2cglorify God in this name.

17 For it is time for the 1ajudgment to bbegin from the 2house of God; and if cfirst from us, 3what will be the end of those who 4ddisobey the gospel of God?

18 And if the 1righteous man is 2saved only with difficulty, where will the aungodly and the sinner 3appear?

19 So then let those 1also who asuffer according to the 2bwill of God 3ccommit their 4souls in 5dwell-doing to a faithful 6eCreator.

1 Peter 3:1  1 Peter 3:22

1 In 1like manner, awives, be subject to your own husbands, that even if any disobey the 2word, they will be gained without the 2word through the manner of life of their bwives,

2 Seeing with their own eyes your 1pure manner of life 2in 3afear.

3 Let your aadorning not be the outward 1plaiting of hair and putting on of bgold or clothing with garments,

4 But the 1hidden man of the aheart in the incorruptible adornment of a meek and quiet bspirit, which is very ccostly in the sight of God.

5 For in this manner formerly the holy women also, who ahoped in God, adorned themselves, being bsubject to their own husbands,

6 As Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him alord; whose children you have become, if you do good and do not bfear any 1terror.

7 aHusbands, in like manner dwell together with them 1according to knowledge, as with the 2weaker, female 3vessel, 4assigning bhonor to themas also to cfellow heirs of the 5grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.

8 And finally be all of the asame mind, sympathetic, bloving the brothers, ctenderhearted, dhumble-minded;

9 Not rendering aevil for evil or breviling for reviling, but on the contrary 1cblessing one another, because you were dcalled 2to this, that you might inherit eblessing.

10 For a“he who desires to love life and see 1good days, let him cause his btongue to cease from evil and his lips to speak no guile.

11 And let him aturn away from evil and do good; let him bseek peace and pursue it;

12 For the aeyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His bears incline to their petition; but the cface of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

13 And who will harm you if you become zealous for what is agood?

14 But even if you asuffer because of brighteousness, you are cblessed. And do not be dafraid with fear from them, nor be etroubled,

15 But 1asanctify Christ as bLord in your hearts, being always ready for a defense to everyone who asks of you an account concerning the 2chope which is in you,

16 Yet with ameekness and 1bfear, having a good 2cconscience, so that in the matter in which you are dspoken against, those who erevile your good fmanner of life 3gin Christ may be put to hshame.

17 For it is better, if the awill of God should will it, to bsuffer for doing good than for doing evil.

18 For Christ also has suffered once for 1sins, the Righteous 2aon behalf of the unrighteous, that He might bring you bto God, on the one hand being put to death in the flesh, but on the other, made alive in the 3Spirit;

19 In 1which also He went and 2proclaimed to the 3spirits in 4prison,

20 1Who had formerly disobeyed when the long-suffering of God waited in the days of aNoah, while the ark was being prepared; entering into which, a few, that is, eight souls, were 2brought safely through 3by bwater.

21 1Which water, as the antitype, also now saves you, that is, 2baptism, 3not a putting away of the filth of the flesh but the 4appeal of a good aconscience unto God, through the bresurrection of Jesus Christ,

22 1Who is at the aright hand of God, having gone into bheaven, cangels and dauthorities and powers being esubjected to Him.

1 Peter 2:1  1 Peter 2:25

1 1Therefore putting away all 2amalice and all guile and bhypocrisies and envyings and all evil speakings,

2 As 1newborn ababes, long for the 2guileless bmilk 3of the word in order that by it you may 4cgrow 5unto dsalvation,

3 If you have 1atasted that the Lord is 2good.

4 Coming to Him, a 1living astone, brejected by men but with God cchosen and 2precious,

5 You yourselves also, as 1living astones, are being 2bbuilt up as a 3spiritual 4chouse 5into a 6holy 7priesthood to offer up 8spiritual sacrifices dacceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

6 For it is contained in Scripture: a“Behold, I lay in Zion a 1cornerstone, 2bchosen and 3precious; and he who cbelieves on Him shall by no means be put to shame.”

7 To you therefore who believe is the 1preciousness; but to the unbelieving, a“The stone which the 2builders brejected, this has 3become the head of the corner,”

8 And, a“A stone of 1bstumbling and a rock of coffense”; who dstumble at 2the word, being disobedient, to 3which also they were eappointed.

9 But you are a achosen 1race, a 2royal bpriesthood, a 3holy nation, a people acquired for a possession, so that you may 4tell out the 5cvirtues of Him who has dcalled you out of 6edarkness into His marvelous 6flight;

10 1Who once were anot a people but now are the people of God; who had not previously been shown mercy but have now been shown mercy.

11 Beloved, I entreat you as astrangers and bsojourners to cabstain from 1dfleshly lusts, which ewar against the 1fsoul,

12 Having your 1amanner of life 2bexcellent among the Gentiles, so that in the matter concerning which they cspeak against you as evildoers they may, by your dgood works, as they see them with their own eyes, eglorify God in the day of His 3fvisitation.

13 1Be asubject to every human 2institution 3for the Lord’s sake, whether to a bking as being supreme,

14 Or to governors as being sent by him for avengeance on evildoers and praise of those who do bgood.

15 For so is the awill of God, that by doing good you would muzzle the bignorance of 1foolish men;

16 As afree, and yet bnot having freedom as a covering for evil, but as cslaves of God.

17 aHonor all men. bLove the 1brotherhood. cFear God. Honor the dking.

18 Household aservants, be subject in all 1bfear to your masters, not only to the good and forbearing but also to the crooked.

19 For this is 1grace, if anyone, 2because of a aconsciousness of God, bears sorrows by suffering 3unjustly.

20 For what 1glory is it if, while sinning and being buffeted, you endure? But if, while doing good and asuffering, you endure, this is grace with God.

21 For to 1this you were acalled, because Christ also bsuffered on your behalf, leaving you a 2cmodel so that you may follow in His steps;

22 Who committed no asin, nor was guile found in His bmouth;

23 Who being reviled did anot revile in return; suffering, He did not threaten but kept committing 1all to Him who 2bjudges righteously;

24 Who Himself 1abore up our sins in His bbody on the 2ctree, in order that we, 3having ddied to sins, might 4elive 5to righteousness; by whose 6fbruise you were 7healed.

25 For you were like asheep being led astray, but you have now 1returned to the 2bShepherd and cOverseer of your 3dsouls.

1 Peter 1:10  1 Peter 1:25

10 Concerning this salvation the 1aprophets, who prophesied concerning the 2grace that was to come unto you, sought and searched diligently,

11 1Searching into 2what time or what manner of time the Spirit 3of Christ in them was making clear, testifying beforehand of the 4sufferings 5of Christ and the 6glories after these.

12 To them it was revealed that not to themselves but to you they ministered 1these things, which have now been announced to you through those who 2preached the gospel to you by the Holy aSpirit sent from heaven, which things angels long to 3look into.

13 1Therefore agirding up the loins of your mind and being 2bsober, set your 3hope perfectly on the 4cgrace being brought to you at the drevelation of Jesus Christ.

14 As children of aobedience, do not be 1fashioned according to the former blusts in your cignorance;

15 But according to the 1Holy One who acalled you, you yourselves also 2be bholy in all your cmanner of life;

16 Because it is written, “You shall be aholy because I am holy.”

17 And if you call as 1aFather the One who bwithout respect of persons 2cjudges according to each one’s 3work, pass the time of your dsojourning in 4efear,

18 Knowing that it was not with corruptible things, with 1asilver or gold, that you were bredeemed cfrom your 2dvain manner of life handed down from your fathers,

19 But with 1precious ablood, as of a bLamb cwithout blemish and without spot, the blood of Christ;

20 Who was 1aforeknown bbefore the foundation of the world but has been cmanifested in the 2dlast of times for your sake,

21 Who 1through Him believe into God, who araised Him from the dead and 2gave Him bglory, so that your 3faith and chope are in God.

22 Since you have 1purified your 2asouls by your obedience to the 3truth unto unfeigned 4bbrotherly love, love one another 5from a pure heart fervently,

23 1Having been aregenerated not of corruptible 2bseed but of incorruptible, through the cliving and abiding word of God.

24 For “all 1flesh is like agrass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass has withered, and the flower has fallen off,

25 But the 1word of the 2Lord abides forever.” And this is the aword which has been announced to you as the 3bgospel.
