1 Peter 1:6-12
New King James Version
6 (A)In this you greatly rejoice, though now (B)for a little while, if need be, (C)you have been [a]grieved by various trials, 7 that (D)the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though (E)it is tested by fire, (F)may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 (G)whom having not [b]seen you love. (H)Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
