Blessed eulogētos be the ho God theos and kai Father patēr of ho our hēmeis Lord kyrios Jesus Iēsous Christ Christos, who ho according to kata · ho his autos great polys mercy eleos gave anagennaō us hēmeis new birth into eis a living zaō hope elpis through dia the resurrection anastasis of Jesus Iēsous Christ Christos from ek the dead nekros, to eis an inheritance klēronomia that is imperishable aphthartos, · kai undefiled amiantos, and kai unfading amarantos, being preserved tēreō in en heaven ouranos for eis you hymeis, who ho by en the power dynamis of God theos are being guarded phroureō through dia faith pistis for eis a salvation sōtēria ready hetoimos to be revealed apokalyptō in en the last eschatos time kairos.

In en this hos you rejoice agalliaō, even if ei now arti it is necessary dei for a short oligos time to be made sorrowful lypeō by en various poikilos trials peirasmos, so that hina the ho genuineness dokimion of ho your hymeis faith pistis ( which is more precious polytimos than gold chrysion that ho perishes apollymi), having been tested dokimazō by dia fire pyr, · de may be found heuriskō to eis your praise epainos and kai glory doxa and kai honor timē at en the revelation apokalypsis of Jesus Iēsous Christ Christos.

10 Concerning peri this hos salvation sōtēria, the prophets prophētēs who ho prophesied prophēteuō of peri the ho grace charis that would come to eis you hymeis investigated diligently ekzēteō and kai examined with care exeraunaō, 11 trying to discover eraunaō what tis time or ē manner poios of time kairos the ho Spirit pneuma of Christ Christos who was in en them autos was indicating dēloō when he predicted promartyromai the ho sufferings pathēma of eis Christ Christos and kai the ho glories doxa that houtos would follow meta. 12 To them hos it was revealed apokalyptō that hoti not ou to themselves heautou, but de to you hymeis, they were ministering diakoneō these things autos that hos now nyn have been announced anangellō to you hymeis through dia those ho who preached euangelizō to you hymeis by en the Holy hagios Spirit pneuma sent apostellō from apo heaven ouranos—things into eis which hos angels angelos long epithumeō to look parakyptō.
