These verses continue on from the previous verses, further describing the attitudes believers ought to have with regards to their faith. The first five verses of the chapter give us reasons to praise God; here we are given reasons to rejoice. The two are of course interlinked, as praise and rejoicing both should lead to the same end: glory to God. vv. 6-9 Here we see that t he trials undergone in the Christian life serve to indicate the genuineness of our faith, which ultimately brings praise and glory and honor to God. Peter does not try to hide the fact that there will be times when the Christian life is difficult. Instead, he seeks to encourage believers by pointing forward to the future revelation of Jesus Christ. Even though they have not seen Jesus in the past nor in the present, the salvation of their souls guarantees them a future time when Christ will be revealed to them. vv. 10-12 While the OT prophets were only able to look forward to the salvation which has been described in v9, believers today are in the privileged position of having experienced it through the announcement and the work of the Holy Spirit. Application Rejoice! Being a Christian ought to change the way we view our circumstances. Suffering is to be expected, but having a future orientation will help us to understand its role in our lives. Knowledge of what Christ has done for us and what he promises to do when he comes again should have a tremendous impact on the way we live our lives.

NT
esv
In this you rejoice,
though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
so that the tested genuineness of your faith-- more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire-- may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Though you have not seen him,
you love him.
Though you do not now see him,
you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,
obtaining the outcome of your faith,
the salvation of your souls.
ideaexplanation
series
Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully,
inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.
It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you,
in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven,
things into which angels long to look.
