1 Peter 2:10-12 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

10 Once you were not a people,
but now you are God’s people;
you had not received mercy,
but now you have received mercy.

A Call to Good Works

11 Dear friends, I urge you as strangers and temporary residents to abstain from fleshly desires that war against you.[a] 12 Conduct yourselves honorably among the Gentiles,[b] so that in a case where they speak against you as those who do what is evil, they will, by observing your good works, glorify God on the day of visitation.[c]
