The OEB currently reads this in 1 Peter 1:13-15:
Therefore concentrate your minds, with the strictest self-control, and fix your hopes on the blessing that is coming for you at the appearing of Jesus Christ. Be like obedient children; do not let your lives be shaped by the passions which once swayed you in the days of your ignorance, but in your whole life show yourselves to be holy, after the pattern of the Holy One from whom you received your call.
Consider changing to:
Therefore ready your minds to act, be calm collected, and hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you at the revealling of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires you used to have in your time of former ignorance, but as the one who called you is Holy, so also are you to be holy in all you do
