14 As [a](A)obedient children, do not [b](B)be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your (C)ignorance, 15 but [c](D)like the Holy One who called you, [d](E)be holy yourselves also (F)in all your behavior; 16 because it is written: “(G)You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

17 If you (H)address as Father the One who (I)impartially (J)judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves (K)in fear during the time of your (L)stay on earth; 18 knowing that you were not [e](M)redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your (N)futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious (O)blood, as of a (P)lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
