New Living Translation
They were told that their messages were not for themselves, but for you. And now this Good News has been announced to you by those who preached in the power of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. It is all so wonderful that even the angels are eagerly watching these things happen.

1 Peter 1:12 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:12 To whom - So searching.

1 Timothy 3:16
Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith: Christ was revealed in a human body and vindicated by the Spirit. He was seen by angels and announced to the nations. He was believed in throughout the world and taken to heaven in glory.
1 Peter 1:25
But the word of the Lord remains forever." And that word is the Good News that was preached to you.
