1 G4826 Simon G4074 Peter G1401 , a servant G2532 and G652 an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G2975 , to them that have obtained [G5631] G2472 like precious G4102 faith G2254 with us G1722 through G1343 the righteousness G2316 of God G2532 and G2257 our G4990 Saviour G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ:
2 G5485 Grace G2532 and G1515 peace G4129 be multiplied [G5684] G5213 unto 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 hath given [G5772] G2254 unto us G3956 all things G4314 that pertain unto G2222 life G2532 and G2150 godliness G1223 , through G1922 the knowledge G2564 of him that hath called [G5660] G2248 us G1223 to G1391 glory G2532 and G703 virtue:
4 G1223 Whereby G3739 G1433 are given [G5769] G2254 unto us G3176 exceeding great G2532 and G5093 precious G1862 promises G2443 : that G1223 by G5130 these G1096 ye might be [G5638] G2844 partakers G2304 of the divine G5449 nature G668 , having escaped [G5631] G5356 the corruption G1722 that is in G2889 the world G1722 through G1939 lust.
5 G2532 And G1161 G846 beside G5124 this G3923 , giving [G5660] G3956 all G4710 diligence G2023 , add [G5657] G1722 to G5216 your G4102 faith G703 virtue G1161 ; and G1722 to G703 virtue G1108 knowledge;
6 G1161 And G1722 to G1108 knowledge G1466 temperance G1161 ; and G1722 to G1466 temperance 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 charity.
8 G1063 For G5023 if these things G5225 be [G5723] G5213 in you G2532 , and G4121 abound [G5723] G2525 , they make [G5719] G3756 you that ye shall neither G692 be barren G3761 nor G175 unfruitful G1519 in G1922 the knowledge G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
9 G1063 But G3739 he that G3361 lacketh G3918 [G5748] G5023 these things G2076 is [G5748] G5185 blind G3467 , and cannot see afar off [G5723] G3024 , and hath forgotten G2983 [G5631] G2512 that he was purged from G846 his G3819 old G266 sins.
10 G1352 Wherefore G3123 the rather G80 , brethren G4704 , give diligence [G5657] G4160 to make [G5733] G5216 your G2821 calling G2532 and G1589 election G949 sure G1063 : for G4160 if ye do [G5723] G5023 these things G4218 , ye shall G4417 G3364 never G4218 fall G4417 [G5661] :
11 G1063 For G3779 so G1529 an entrance G2023 shall be ministered [G5701] G5213 unto you G4146 abundantly G1519 into G166 the everlasting G932 kingdom G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2532 and G4990 Saviour G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
12 G1352 Wherefore G272 I will G3756 not G272 be negligent [G5692] G5279 to put G5209 you G104 always G5279 in remembrance [G5721] G4012 of G5130 these things G2539 , though G1492 ye know [G5761] G2532 them, and G4741 be established [G5772] G1722 in G3918 the present [G5752] G225 truth.
13 G1161 Yea G2233 , I think it [G5736] G1342 meet G1909 , as long as G3745 G1510 I am [G5748] G1722 in G5129 this G4638 tabernacle G1326 , to stir G5209 you G1326 up [G5721] G1722 by G5280 putting you in remembrance;
14 G1492 Knowing [G5761] G3754 that G5031 shortly G2076 I must [G5748] G595 put off G3450 this my G4638 tabernacle G2532 , even G2531 as G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1213 hath shewed [G5656] G3427 me.
15 G1161 Moreover G2532 G4704 I will endeavour [G5692] G5209 that ye G2192 may be able [G5721] G3326 after G1699 my G1841 decease G4160 to have [G5733] G5130 these things G1539 always G3420 in remembrance.
16 G1063 For G1811 we have G3756 not G1811 followed [G5660] G4679 cunningly devised [G5772] G3454 fables G1107 , when we made known [G5656] G5213 unto you G1411 the power G2532 and G3952 coming G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G235 , but G1096 were [G5679] G2030 eyewitnesses G1565 of his G3168 majesty.
17 G1063 For G2983 he received [G5631] G3844 from G2316 God G3962 the Father G5092 honour G2532 and G1391 glory G5342 , when there came [G5685] G5107 such G5456 a voice G846 to him G5259 from G3169 the excellent G1391 glory G3778 , This G2076 is [G5748] G3450 my G27 beloved G5207 Son G1519 , in G3739 whom G1473 I G2106 am well pleased [G5656] .
18 G2532 And G5026 this G5456 voice G5342 which came [G5685] G1537 from G3772 heaven G2249 we G191 heard [G5656] G5607 , when we were [G5752] G4862 with G846 him G1722 in G40 the holy G3735 mount.
19 G2192 We have [G5719] G2532 also G949 a more sure G3056 word G4397 of prophecy G3739 ; whereunto G4160 ye do [G5719] G2573 well G4337 that ye take heed [G5723] G5613 , as G3088 unto a light G5316 that shineth [G5730] G1722 in G850 a dark G5117 place G2193 , until G3739 G2250 the day G1306 dawn [G5661] G2532 , and G5459 the day star G393 arise [G5661] G1722 in G5216 your G2588 hearts:
20 G1097 Knowing [G5723] G5124 this G4412 first G3754 , that G3756 no G3956 G4394 prophecy G1124 of the scripture G1096 is [G5736] G2398 of any private G1955 interpretation.
