1 Peter 1sins Sin. (See Scofield "Romans 3:23") . Elect Election, Summary: In both Testaments the Hebrew and Greek words are rendered "elect," "election," "choose," "chosen." In all cases they mean, simply, "chosen," or "to choose"; and are used of both human and divine choices. (1) In the latter use election is: (a) corporate, as of the nation of Israel, or the church Isaiah 45:4; Ephesians 1:4 and (b) individual 1 Peter 1:2 (2) Election is according to the foreknowledge of God 1 Peter 1:2 and wholly of grace, apart from human merit ; Romans 9:11; 11:5,6.

(2) The sovereign act of God whereby certain elect persons are chosen for distinctive service for Him. Luke 6:13; Acts 9:15; 1 Corinthians 1:27,28 might Suffering, in First Peter, is set in the light of: (1) assured salvation, 1 Peter 1:2-5.

That foreknowledge determines the election or choice is clear from 1 Peter 1:2 and predestination is the bringing to pass of the election. "election looks back to foreknowledge; predestination forward to the destiny."
