1 Peter 2:10-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

10 For at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God’s mercy, because you hadn’t received it yet, but now you are drenched with it![a]

Living Godly Lives

11 My divinely loved friends, since you are resident aliens and foreigners in this world, I appeal to you to divorce yourselves from the evil desires that wage war within you.[b] 12 Live honorable lives as you mix with unbelievers, even though they accuse you of being evildoers. For they will see your beautiful works and have a reason to glorify God in the day he visits us.[c]


  1. 1 Peter 2:10 Or in Aramaic, “mercies cascade over you.” See Hos. 1:6, 9; 2:23. Both Israel and the church have been divinely chosen and showered with mercy.
  2. 1 Peter 2:11 Or “that wage war against your soul.”
  3. 1 Peter 2:12 See Matt. 5:16; 18:20.
