conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is

conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited

from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb

without blemish or spot. He was foreknown before the foundation

of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. faithful to the end • week 3

And this word is the good news that was preached to you. (ESV)
