Do not be in a hurry to lay hands on anyone [i.e., to appoint them to office. See 4:14], and do not participate in the sins of other people.

Keep yourself pure [i.e., of involvement in anyone's sins].

The reason I am reminding you [of these things] is so that you will rekindle the gift from God, which is in your life through the laying on my hands.

[This is being written by] Jesus' apostle Peter, to God's people who are scattered throughout the countries of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia. [Note: These places are located in present-day Turkey].
