Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which, according to his abundant mercy, hath begotten us again to a lively hope,
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead:
to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled,
and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
