1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have been chosen by God and who are refugees of the Dispersion, residing in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia—(2) chosen in accordance with the foreknowledge of God the Father and set apart by the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit for obedience, that is, by the sprinkling with the blood of Jesus Christ. May grace and peace be multiplied to you.

5 (12) By Silvanus, the faithful brother (so I regard him), I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it. (13) She who is in Babylon, chosen along with you, greets you; and so does my son Mark. (14) Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
