2 G5485 Grace G2532 and G1515 peace G4129 be multiplied G5213 to you G1722 through G1922 the knowledge G2316 of God, G2532 and G2424 of Jesus G2257 our G2962 Lord,
3 G5613 According as G846 his G2304 divine G1411 power G1433 has given G2254 to us G3956 all things G3588 that G4314 pertain to G2222 life G2532 and G2150 godliness, G1223 through G1922 the knowledge G2564 of him that has called G2248 us G1223 to G1391 glory G2532 and G703 virtue:
4 G1223 By G3739 which G1433 are given G2254 to us G3176 exceedingly great G2532 and G5093 precious G1862 promises: G2443 that G1223 by G5130 these G1096 you might be G2844 partakers G5449 of the G2304 divine G5449 nature, G668 having escaped G5356 the corruption G1722 that is in G2889 the world G1722 through G1939 lust.
5 G2532 And G1161 G846 because G5124 of this, G3923 giving G3956 all G4710 diligence, G2023 add G1722 to G5216 your G4102 faith G703 virtue; G1161 and G1722 to G703 virtue G1108 knowledge;
6 G1161 And G1722 to G1108 knowledge G1466 self-control; G1161 and G1722 to G1466 self-control G5281 patience; G1161 and G1722 to G5281 patience G2150 godliness;
7 G1161 And G1722 to G2150 godliness G5360 brotherly kindness; G1161 and G1722 to G5360 brotherly kindness G26 love.
8 G1063 For G5225 if G5023 these things G5225 are G5213 in you, G2532 and G4121 abound, G2525 they make G3756 you that you shall neither G692 be childless G3761 nor G175 unfruitful G1519 in G1922 the knowledge G2962 of G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
9 G1063 But G3739 he that G3361 G3918 lacks G5023 these things G2076 is G5185 blind, G3467 and cannot see afar off, G2983 and has G3024 forgotten G2512 that he was purged G266 from G846 his G3819 old G266 sins.
10 G1352 Therefore G80 brothers, G3123 give more G4704 diligence G4160 to make G5216 your G2821 calling G2532 and G1589 election G949 sure: G1063 for G4160 if you do G5023 these things, G4218 you shall G4417 G3364 never G4218 G4417 fall:
11 G1063 For G3779 thus G1529 an entrance G2023 shall be served G5213 to you G4146 abundantly G1519 into G166 the everlasting G932 kingdom G2962 of G2257 our G2962 Lord G2532 and G4990 Savior G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
12 G1352 Therefore G272 I will G3756 not G272 be negligent G5279 to put G5209 you G104 always G5279 in memory G4012 of G5130 these things, G2539 though G1492 you know G2532 them, and G4741 are established G1722 in G3918 the present G225 truth.
13 G1161 Yes, G2233 I think it G1909 suitable, G3745 as long as G1510 I am G1722 in G5129 this G4638 tabernacle, G1326 to stir G5209 you G1326 up G5280 by putting G1722 you in G5280 memory;
14 G1492 Knowing G3754 that G5031 shortly G595 I must put off G3450 this my G4638 tabernacle, G2532 even G2531 as G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1213 has shown G3427 me.
15 G1161 Moreover G4704 I will endeavor that G5209 you G4160 may be able G3326 after G1699 my G1841 departure G2192 to have G5130 these things G1539 always G3420 in memory.
16 G1063 For G1811 we have G3756 not G1811 followed G4679 cunningly devised G3454 fables, G1107 when we made known G5213 to you G1411 the power G2532 and G3952 coming G2962 of G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G235 but G1096 were G2030 eyewitnesses G3168 of G1565 his G3168 majesty.
17 G1063 For G2983 he received G3844 from G2316 God G3962 the Father G5092 honor G2532 and G1391 glory, G5342 when there came G5107 such G5456 a voice G846 to him G5259 from G1391 the G3169 excellent G1391 glory, G3778 This G2076 is G3450 my G27 beloved G5207 Son, G1519 in G3739 whom G1473 I G2106 am well pleased.
18 G2532 And G3778 this G5456 voice G5342 which came G1537 from G3772 heaven G2249 we G191 heard, G5607 when we were G4862 with G846 him G1722 in G3735 the G40 holy G3735 mountain.
19 G2192 We have G2532 also G949 a more sure G3056 word G4397 of prophecy; G3739 to which G4160 you do G2573 well G4337 that you take care, G5613 as G3088 to a light G5316 that shines G1722 in G850 a dark G5117 place, G2193 until G3757 G2250 the day G1306 dawns, G2532 and G5459 the day star G393 arise G1722 in G5216 your G2588 hearts:
20 G1097 Knowing G5124 this G4412 first, G3754 that G3756 no G4394 prophecy G1124 of the scripture G1096 is G1955 of G3956 any G2398 private G1955 interpretation.
