1 Peter 4:8-11

A. 8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:

B. for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

A’. 9 Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

A.(10) As every man hath received the gift,

B. even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

C. (11) If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God;

B’. if any man minister,

A’. let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:


1 Peter 3:18-22

A.(18) ¶ For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God,

B. being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: (19) By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; (20) Which sometime were disobedient,

C. when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

C’.(21) The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us

B’. (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

A’. (22) Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

1 Peter 5:1-5

A.(1) The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder,

B. and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

C.(2) Feed the flock of God which is among you,taking the oversight thereof

D.  not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

C’.(3) Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

B’.( 4) And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

A’.(5) Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

1 Peter 3:7-17

A. 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge,

B. giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel,

B’. and as being heirs together of the grace of life;

A’. that your prayers be not hindered.

A. 8  Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

B. 9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

C. 10 For he that will love life, and see good days,

D. let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

E. 11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers:

F. but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

E’. 13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

D’. 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

C’. 16 Having a good conscience;

B.’ that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

A’. 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

1 Peter 1:3-21

A. 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

B. 6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

C. 7 That the trial of your faith,

D. being much more precious than of gold that perisheth,

C’. though it be tried with fire,

B’. might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

A’. 9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

2A. 10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently,

2B. who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

2C. 11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

2B’. 12 Unto 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 unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven;

2A’. which things the angels desire to look into.

3A. 13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

3B. 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

3C.15 But as he which hath called you is holy,

3D. so be ye holy

3E. in all manner of conversation;

3D’. 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy;

3C’. for I am holy.

3B’. 17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

3A’. 18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 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.




1 Peter 1:22-25

A. 22 Seeing 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: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God,

B. which liveth and abideth for ever.

C. 24 For all flesh is as grass,

and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.

C’. The grass withereth,

and the flower thereof falleth away:

B’. 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.

A’. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
