If a choice must be made, the unstated object of faith is most likely Jesus, since he is the explicit object of faith elsewhere in the immediate context (1:8; contra Achtemeier 1996, 97). εἰς σωτηρίαν. Purpose. Many scholars maintain that this phrase modifies ἀναγεννήσας and is used with εἰς ἐλπίδα (v. 3) and εἰς κληρονομίαν (v. , Achtemeier 1996, 97; Schreiner, 61).

Aor mid ptc masc nom pl λυπέω (concessive, not causal, contra Selwyn, 127). The aorist participle here reflects antecedent time (so NIV, NRSV; contra RSV, NET); the recipients rejoice despite the fact that they have already undergone various trials. This interpretation stands against those who would see the suffering of the recipients as only potential, not actual; see further Dubis (2002, 72–76).
