Book 61 2 Peter 001:001 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: 001:002 Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 001:003 seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue; 001:004 by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust. 001:005 Yes, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence; and in moral excellence, knowledge; 001:006 and in knowledge, self control; and in self control patience; and in patience godliness; 001:007 and in godliness brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love. 001:008 For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful to the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 001:009 For he who lacks these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins. 001:010 Therefore, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} be more diligent to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never stumble. 001:011 For thus you will be richly supplied with the entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 001:012 Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth. 001:013 I think it right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you; 001:014 knowing that the putting off of my tent comes swiftly, even as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. 001:015 Yes, I will make every effort that you may always be able to remember these things even after my departure. 001:016 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 001:017 For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."{Matthew 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 9:35} 001:018 We heard this voice come out of heaven when we were with him on the holy mountain. 001:019 We have the more sure word of prophecy; and you do well that you heed it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns, and the morning star arises in your hearts: 001:020 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of private interpretation. 001:021 For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke, being moved by the Holy Spirit. 002:001 But false prophets also arose among the people, as false teachers will also be among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction. 002:002 Many will follow their immoral{TR reads "destructive" instead of "immoral"} ways, and as a result, the way of the truth will be maligned. 002:003 In covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words: whose sentence now from of old doesn't linger, and their destruction will not slumber. 002:004 For if God didn't spare angels when they sinned, but cast them down to Tartarus{Tartarus is another name for Hell}, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 002:005 and didn't spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood on the world of the ungodly; 002:006 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly; 002:007 and delivered righteous Lot, who was very distressed by the lustful life of the wicked 002:008 (for that righteous man dwelling among them, was tormented in his righteous soul from day to day with seeing and hearing lawless deeds): 002:009 the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment; 002:010 but chiefly those who walk after the flesh in the lust of defilement, and despise authority...
