1 Peter 3:18-22

View commentary related to this passage

18That’s what Christ did definitively: suffered because of others’ sins, the Righteous One for the unrighteous ones. He went through it all–was put to death and then made alive–to bring us to God.

19He went and proclaimed God’s salvation to earlier generations who ended up in the prison of judgment 20because they wouldn’t listen. You know, even though God waited patiently all the days that Noah built his ship, only a few were saved then, eight to be exact–saved from the water by the water. 21The waters of baptism do that for you, not by washing away dirt from your skin but by presenting you through Jesus’ resurrection before God with a clear conscience. 22Jesus has the last word on everything and everyone, from angels to armies. He’s standing right alongside God, and what he says goes.
