1 Peter 1:13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Obedience. 13 [a]Therefore, gird up the loins of your mind,[b] live soberly, and set your hopes completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:13–25 These verses are concerned with the call of God’s people to holiness and to mutual love by reason of their redemption through the blood of Christ (1 Pt 1:18–21).
  2. 1:13 Gird up the loins of your mind: a figure reminiscent of the rite of Passover when the Israelites were in flight from their oppressors (Ex 12:11), and also suggesting the vigilance of the Christian people in expectation of the parousia of Christ (Lk 12:35).
