1:22Seeing 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:
1:23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1:24For 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:
1:25But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
