1 Peter 1 KJV
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as
of a Lamb
without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the
foundation of the world,
but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by Him do believe in God, that raised
Him up from the dead,
and gave Him Glory; that your Faith and Hope might be in God.
