2 Peter

MLV(i) 1 Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who are allotted an equally precious faith with us, in the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: 2 may grace and peace be multiplied to you in the full knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 As his divine power has been bestowed to us as a gift, (all things pertaining to life and godliness), through the full knowledge of the one who called us through glory and virtue; 4 through which he has bestowed to us as a gift, his precious and greatest promises; in order that you might become partners of the divine nature through these things, having fled away from the corruption in the world among its lust.
5 Now also for this same thing, besides having entered in all diligence, supply in your faith, virtue, and in your virtue, knowledge 6 and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, endurance, and in your endurance, godliness; 7 and in your godliness, brotherly-love, and in your brotherly-love, love. 8 For if these things are existing and increasing in you, none will designate you idle or unfruitful toward the full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For the one is blind in whom these things are not present, being short-sighted, having taken on himself the forgetfulness of the cleansing from his old sins.
10 Hence brethren, be more diligent to make your calling and choice steadfast; for, you may never trip someday while practicing these things; 11 for so the entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied to you.
12 Hence, I will habitually not be neglecting to remind you concerning these things, although you know them and are established in the present truth. 13 But I am deeming it righteous, inasmuch as I am in this tabernacle, to arouse you with a reminder; 14 knowing that the removal of my tabernacle is coming quickly, just-as our Lord Jesus Christ indicated to me. 15 But I will also be diligent, each-time, to have you in remembrance of these things, to practice them after my exodus. 16 For we did not follow wisely devised fables, when we made known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but in that, we became eyewitnesses of that majesty. 17 For having received honor and glory from God the Father, when such a voice was carried to him by the Majestic Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am delighted. 18 And we heard this voice, having been carried from heaven, being together with him in the holy mountain. 19 And we have the steadfast prophetic word, (as to a lamp appearing in a dreary place, until the day should dawn and the morning-star might rise), to which you are doing well, and taking-heed in your hearts. 20 Knowing this first, that every prophecy of Scripture does not come from one’s own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever brought about by the will of man, but the holy men of God spoke the word being carried by the Holy Spirit.
