1 Peter 1:5-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Through our faith, the mighty power of God constantly guards[a] us until our full salvation[b] is ready to be revealed[c] in the last time. May the thought of this cause you to jump for joy,[d] even though lately you’ve had to put up with the grief of many trials.[e] But these only reveal the sterling core[f] of your faith, which is far more valuable than gold that perishes, for even gold is refined by fire. Your authentic faith will result in even more praise, glory, and honor when Jesus the Anointed One is revealed.[g]


  1. 1 Peter 1:5 The Greek word for “guards us” is phrouroumenous, which comes from a military term (phrouria) meaning “a fort” or “an army garrison stationed to defend a city.” You are continually being watched over and protected by God’s mighty power.
  2. 1 Peter 1:5 The third result of our new birth that Peter mentions is our full salvation (or deliverance) that will come when Christ is unveiled. It is ready to be revealed and waits for our discovery.
  3. 1 Peter 1:5 The Greek verb apokalyptō means “to unveil and disclose.” Peter is saying that there is a more complete salvation awaiting us when Christ is unveiled in the last days. The nominalized form of apokalyptō is the title of the last book of the Bible, Revelation: The Unveiling of Jesus Christ. In just a few verses Peter will tell us that a “grace” will also be revealed to us in the last days (1:13).
  4. 1 Peter 1:6 Or “exult in joy.” The Aramaic can be translated “rejoice for eternity.”
  5. 1 Peter 1:6 Peter speaks of believers suffering difficulties and persecutions four times in his first letter (1:6-7; 3:13-17; 4:12-19; 5:9).
  6. 1 Peter 1:7 Or “proven character.”
  7. 1 Peter 1:7 Or “comes out of his concealment.”
