1 G4613 Simon G4074 Peter, G1401 a servant G652 and an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G2975 to them that have obtained G2472 like G2472 precious G4102 faith G1722 with us through G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God G4990 and our Savior G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ:
2 G5485 Grace G1515 and peace G4129 be multiplied G1722 to you through G1922 the knowledge G2316 of God, G2424 and of Jesus G2962 our Lord,
3 G5613 According G2304 as his divine G1411 power G1433 has given G3956 to us all G2222 things that pertain to life G2150 and godliness, G1223 through G1922 the knowledge G2564 of him that has called G1391 us to glory G703 and virtue:
4 G1223 Whereby G3739 G1433 are given G3176 to us exceeding great G5093 and precious G1862 promises: G5130 that by these G2844 you might be partakers G2304 of the divine G5449 nature, G668 having escaped G5356 the corruption G2889 that is in the world G1722 through G1939 lust.
5 G846 And beside G5124 this, G3923 giving G3956 all G4710 diligence, G2023 add G5216 to your G4102 faith G703 virtue; G703 and to virtue G1108 knowledge;
6 G1108 And to knowledge G1466 temperance; G1466 and to temperance G5281 patience; G5281 and to patience G2150 godliness;
7 G2150 And to godliness G5360 brotherly G5360 kindness; G5360 and to brotherly G5360 kindness G26 charity.
8 G5023 For if these G4121 things be in you, and abound, G2525 they make G3756 you that you shall neither G692 be barren G3761 nor G175 unfruitful G1922 in the knowledge G2962 of our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
9 G3361 But he that lacks G3918 G5023 these G5185 things is blind, G3467 and cannot G3467 see G3467 afar G3024 off, and has forgotten G2983 G2512 that he was purged G3819 from his old G266 sins.
10 G1352 Why G3123 the rather, G80 brothers, G4710 give diligence G4160 to make G5216 your G2821 calling G1589 and election G949 sure: G4160 for if you do G5023 these G3364 things, you shall never G4219 G4417 fall:
11 G3779 For so G1529 an entrance G2023 shall be ministered G4146 to you abundantly G1519 into G166 the everlasting G932 kingdom G2962 of our Lord G4990 and Savior G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
12 G1352 Why G272 I will not be negligent G5279 to put G104 you always G5179 in remembrance G5130 of these G2539 things, though G1492 you know G4741 them, and be established G3918 in the present G225 truth.
13 G1161 Yes, G2233 I think G1342 it meet, G1510 as long as I am G5129 in this G4638 tabernacle, G1326 to stir G5279 you up by putting G5280 you in remembrance;
14 G1492 Knowing G5031 that shortly G595 I must put G595 off G3588 this G4638 my tabernacle, G2532 even G2962 as our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1213 has showed me.
15 G1161 Moreover G2532 G4704 I will endeavor G2192 that you may be able G3326 after G1841 my decease G5130 to have these G1539 things always G3420 in remembrance.
16 G1811 For we have not followed G4679 cunningly devised G3454 fables, G1107 when we made G1107 known G1411 to you the power G3952 and coming G2962 of our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G2030 but were eyewitnesses G3168 of his majesty.
17 G2983 For he received G2316 from God G3962 the Father G5092 honor G1391 and glory, G5342 when there came G5107 such G5456 a voice G3169 to him from the excellent G1391 glory, G3778 This G27 is my beloved G5207 Son, G3739 in whom G2106 I am well G2106 pleased.
18 G5026 And this G5456 voice G5342 which came G3772 from heaven G191 we heard, G40 when we were with him in the holy G3735 mount.
19 G2192 We have G2532 also G949 a more sure G3056 word G4397 of prophecy; G3739 whereunto G4160 you do G2573 well G4337 that you take heed, G3088 as to a light G5316 that shines G850 in a dark G5117 place, G2193 until G2250 the day G1306 dawn, G5459 and the day G5459 star G393 arise G5216 in your G2588 hearts:
20 G1097 Knowing G5124 this G4412 first, G3956 that no G3756 G4394 prophecy G1124 of the scripture G2398 is of any private G1955 interpretation.
