This was difficult to arc, and there are two points at which I still very unsure of my decisions: 1. I see vv.20-21 trying to explain why knowing that we have been ransomed with the blood of Christ is a reason to conduct our exile in fear. We are experiencing, now, the great promised salvation, and it would be foolish to abandon that by not living in fear of God. 2. I saw 20a as an alternative with 20b - the "de" in 20b signals a contrast, and so probably a simple alternative is in mind, highlighting the great salvation we have now in Christ Jesus. I wonder, however, whether there might not be a concessive force in 20a - even though Christ is God's eternal plan, what we have now is so much greater than what the prophets themselves enjoy that we must live in holy fear so as not to lose that salvation. In either case, though, the meaning remains basically the same.

ἐν φόβῳ τὸν τῆς παροικίας ὑμῶν χρόνον ἀναστράφητε,
conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile,

knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold,
ἀλλὰ τιμίῳ αἵματι ὡς ἀμνοῦ ἀμώμου καὶ ἀσπίλου Χριστοῦ,
but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.
