Why do you ignore truth in the context? So how was regeneration brought about according to 1 Pet 1 3?Why did you divorce one verse from another

1 Pet. 1:7 —NASB
“that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;”
