Bible: 1 Pet 1:18-20

1:18 You know that from your empty way of life inherited from your ancestors you were ransomed – not by perishable things like silver or gold, 1:19 but by precious blood like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb, namely Christ. 1:20 He was foreknown 1  before the foundation of the world but 2  was manifested in these last times 3  for your sake.
