2 Peter 1

[1] [2] [3]

1:1 Simeon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who did obtain a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ:

1:2 Grace to you, and peace be multiplied in the acknowledgement of God and of Jesus our Lord!

1:3 As all things to us His divine power (the things pertaining unto life and piety) hath given, through the acknowledgement of him who did call us through glory and worthiness,

1:4 through which to us the most great and precious promises have been given, that through these ye may become partakers of a divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world in desires.

1:5 And this same also -- all diligence having brought in besides, superadd in your faith the worthiness, and in the worthiness the knowledge,

1:6 and in the knowledge the temperance, and in the temperance the endurance, and in the endurance the piety,

1:7 and in the piety the brotherly kindness, and in the brotherly kindness the love;

1:8 for these things being to you and abounding, do make `you' neither inert nor unfruitful in regard to the acknowledging of our Lord Jesus Christ,

1:9 for he with whom these things are not present is blind, dim-sighted, having become forgetful of the cleansing of his old sins;

1:10 wherefore, the rather, brethren, be diligent to make stedfast your calling and choice, for these things doing, ye may never stumble,

1:11 for so, richly shall be superadded to you the entrance into the age-during reign of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

1:12 Wherefore, I will not be careless always to remind you concerning these things, though, having known them, and having been established in the present truth,

1:13 and I think right, so long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up in reminding `you',

1:14 having known that soon is the laying aside of my tabernacle, even as also our Lord Jesus Christ did shew to me,

1:15 and I will be diligent that also at every time ye have, after my outgoing, power to make to yourselves the remembrance of these things.

1:16 For, skilfully devised fables not having followed out, we did make known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but eye-witnesses having become of his majesty --

1:17 for having received from God the Father honour and glory, such a voice being borne to him by the excellent glory: `This is My Son -- the beloved, in whom I was well pleased;'

1:18 and this voice we -- we did hear, out of heaven borne, being with him in the holy mount.

1:19 And we have more firm the prophetic word, to which we do well giving heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, till day may dawn, and a morning star may arise -- in your hearts;

1:20 this first knowing, that no prophecy of the Writing doth come of private exposition,

1:21 for not by will of man did ever prophecy come, but by the Holy Spirit borne on holy men of God spake.
