And if ye call him Father, which without respect of person judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your dwelling here in fear, 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:
1:18 witting that not by corruptible gold, or silver, ye be bought again of your vain living of fathers’ tradition, Forasmuch as ye know how that ye were not redeemed with corruptible gold and silver from your vain conversation, which ye received by the traditions of the fathers: Knowing that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation, received by the traditions of the fathers, 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;
1:19 but by the precious blood as of the lamb undefouled and unspotted, Christ Jesus, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb undefiled, and without spot, But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb undefiled, & without spot.

1:24 For each flesh is hay, and all the glory of it is as the flower of hay; the hay drieth up, and the flower fell down; because that all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass, the grass is withered, and the flower is faded away, For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower falleth away. For 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.
1:25 but the word of the Lord dwelleth into without end. Soothly this is the word, that is evangelized to you. but the word of the lord endureth ever. And this is the word which by the gospel was preached among you. But the word of the Lord endureth for ever: and this is the word which is preached among you. But the word of the Lord endureth for ever: & this is the word which by the Gospel is preached unto you.
