“Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:”
King James Version (KJV)
1:8 Having not seen - In the flesh.
1Pe 1:8 Whom having not seen ye love. Jesus Christ. In whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing. Though not having seen Christ, they knew him by faith. Ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Because they believe upon him whom they have not seen they are filled with the unspeakable joy of a glorious hope.
