The New Messianic Version of the Bible
1Kefa [pebble] [pebble], an apostle of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus [the sea], Galatia [land of the Galli, Gauls, A Celt], Cappadocia [province of good horses], Asia [orient], and Bithynia, 2Elect according to the foreknowledge of God-The Father the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit [Ruach], unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah]: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
3Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [be] the God-The Father and Father of our Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], which according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] from the dead, 4To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5Who are kept by the power of God-The Father through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6Wherein you2f greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, you2f are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah]: 8Whom having not seen, you2f love; in whom, though now you2f see [him] not, yet believing, you2f rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9Receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of [your] souls.
10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should come] unto you: 11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit [Ruach] of Moshiach [Messiah] which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Moshiach [Messiah], and the glory that should follow. 12Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the Gospel (joyful message) unto you with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh] sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
13For what reason gird up the waist of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah]; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which has called you is holy, so be you2f holy in all manner of Conversation (behavior; way of life; community); 16Because it is written, Be you2f holy; for I am holy.
17And if you2f call on the Father, who without respect of persons judges according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning [here] in fear: 18Forasmuch as you2f know that you2f were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain Conversation (behavior; way of life; community) [received] by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Moshiach [Messiah], as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20Who truly was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21Who by him do believe in God-The Father, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God-The Father.
22Seeing you2f have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit [Ruach] unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that you2f] love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God-The Father, which lives and abides forever.
24For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away:
25But the word of the Lord - Kurios endures forever. And this is the word which by the Gospel (joyful message) is preached unto you.
