1 Peter 1:13-25 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 but as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18 forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21 who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 but the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

1 Peter 1:13-25 New King James Version (NKJV)

Living Before God Our Father

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your [a]stay here in fear; 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with [b]corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 20 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was [c]manifest in these last times for you 21 who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

The Enduring Word

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth [d]through the Spirit in [e]sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 23 having been born again, not of [f]corruptible seed but [g]incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides [h]forever, 24 because

“All flesh is as grass,
And all [i]the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the [j]word of the Lord endures forever.”

Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

1 Peter 1:13-25 Modern English Version (MEV)

A Call to Holy Living

13 Therefore guard your minds, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children do not conduct yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance. 15 But as He who has called you is holy, so be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”[a]

17 And if you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your sojourning. 18 For you know that you were not redeemed from your vain way of life inherited from your fathers with perishable things, like silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 20 He was foreordained before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for you. 21 Through Him you believe in God who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope might be in God.

22 Since your souls have been purified by obedience to the truth through the Spirit unto a genuine brotherly love, love one another deeply with a pure heart, 23 for you have been born again, not from perishable seed, but imperishable, through the word of God which lives and abides forever. 24 For

“All flesh is as grass,
    and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.
The grass withers, and its flower falls away,
25     but the word of the Lord endures forever.”[b]

This is the word that was preached to you.

1 Pedro 1:13-25 Reina Valera Contemporánea (RVC)

Llamamiento a una vida santa

13 Por lo tanto, preparen su mente para la acción, estén atentos y pongan toda su esperanza en la gracia que recibirán cuando Jesucristo sea manifestado. 14 Pórtense como hijos obedientes, y no sigan los dictados de sus anteriores malos deseos, de cuando vivían en la ignorancia. 15 Al contrario, vivan una vida completamente santa, porque santo es aquel que los ha llamado. 16 Escrito está: «Sean santos, porque yo soy santo.» 17 Si ustedes llaman «Padre» a aquel que al juzgar se fija en lo que se ha hecho, y no en quién lo hizo, vivan el resto de sus vidas en el temor de Dios. 18 Ustedes saben que fueron rescatados de una vida sin sentido, la cual heredaron de sus padres; y que ese rescate no se pagó con cosas corruptibles, como el oro y la plata, 19 sino con la sangre preciosa de Cristo, sin mancha y sin contaminación, como la de un cordero, 20 que ya había sido destinado desde antes de que Dios creara el mundo, pero que se manifestó en estos últimos tiempos por amor a ustedes. 21 Por él ustedes creen en Dios, que fue quien lo resucitó de los muertos y lo ha glorificado, para que ustedes tengan puesta su fe y su esperanza en Dios.

22 Y ahora, ya que se han purificado mediante su obediencia a la verdad, para amar sinceramente a sus hermanos, ámense los unos a los otros de todo corazón, 23 pues ustedes han nacido de nuevo, y no de una simiente perecedera, sino de una simiente imperecedera, por la palabra de Dios que vive y permanece para siempre. 24 Porque:

«Todo hombre es como la hierba,
Y toda su gloria es como una flor.
La hierba se seca, y la flor se marchita,
25 pero la palabra del Señor permanece para siempre.»

Y éstas son las buenas noticias que se les han anunciado.
