First Epistle of St. Peter – Chapter 1, 16-30:
 Because it is written: You shall be holy, for I am holy.  And if you invoke as Father him who, without respect of persons, judgeth according to every one’ s work: converse in fear during the time of your sojourning here.  Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things as gold or silver, from your vain conversation of the tradition of your fathers:  But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb unspotted and undefiled,  Foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but manifested in the last times for you.
