Is the praise, glory and honor mentioned in I Pet. 1:7 to be applied to QEOS,
IHSOU CRISTOU, or the readers themselves?

I'm reading an analysis that that seems to suggest that it applies to the
readers' eventual exoneration (honor) for the 'achievements' listed in vv.
4-8. It's unconvincing to me. My objections stem from the fact that the
readers are cast in 1:3-9 as beneficiaries, and God is the target of praise
and rejoicing. Can anyone offer further enlightenment for the alternatives?
