1.4 = to obtain an inheritance which
is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for
1.5-7 = who are protected by the power of God through
faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you
greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been
distressed by various trials, that the proof of your faith, being
more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be
found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
