Bible: 1 Peter 1:20-25

1:20 He was foreknown 1  before the foundation of the world but 2  was manifested in these last times 3  for your sake. 1:21 Through him you now trust 4  in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

1:22 You have purified 5  your souls by obeying the truth 6  in order to show sincere mutual love. 7  So 8  love one another earnestly from a pure heart. 9  1:23 You have been born anew, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God. 1:24 For

all flesh 10  is like grass

and all its glory like the flower of the grass; 11 

the grass withers and the flower falls off,

1:25 but the word of the Lord 12  endures forever. 13 

And this is the word that was proclaimed to you.
