1 Peter 1:22-25 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

22 And make ye chaste your souls in obedience of charity [Ye making chaste your souls in obedience of charity], in love of brotherhood; of simple heart love ye together more busily.

23 And be ye born again, not of corruptible seed, but [of] uncorruptible, by the word of living God, and dwelling into without end.

24 For each flesh is hay, and all the glory of it is as the flower of hay; the hay dried up, and his flower felled down[a];

25 but the word of the Lord dwelleth without end [into without end]. And this is the word, that is preached to you [Soothly this is the word, that is evangelized to you].

1 Peter 1:22-25 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

22 And inasmuch as you have purified your souls through the Spirit, in the obedience of truth with brotherly love unfeigned, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently. 23 For you are born anew, not of mortal seed, but of immortal: by the word of God, which lives and lasts forever.

24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass.  The grass withers, and the flower falls away, 25 but the word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the word which by the gospel was preached among you.

1 Peter 1:22-25 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

22 [a]Having purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit, to love brotherly without feigning, love one another with a pure heart fervently:

23 Being born anew, not of mortal seed, but of immortal, by the word of God, who liveth and endureth forever.

24 [b]For all [c]flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower falleth away.

25 [d]But the word of the Lord endureth forever: and this is the word which is preached among you.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Peter 1:22 He commendeth the practice of obedience, that is, charity: earnestly beating into their heads again, that he speaketh not of any common charity, and such as proceedeth from that our corrupt nature, but of that whose beginning is the Spirit of God, which purifieth our souls through the word laid hold on by faith, and engendereth also in us a spiritually and everlasting life, as God is most pure and truly living.
  2. 1 Peter 1:24 A reason why we have need of this heavenly generation, to wit, because that men, be their glory never so great, are of nature void of all true and sound goodness.
  3. 1 Peter 1:24 The word (flesh) showeth the weakness of our nature, which is chiefly to be considered in the flesh itself.
  4. 1 Peter 1:25 Again, lest any man should seek that spiritual force and virtue in fained imaginations, the Apostle calleth us back to the word of God: teaching us furthermore, that there is no other word of the Lord to be looked for, than this which is preached, in which only we must trust.

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.
