1 G4826 Simon G4074 Peter, G1401 a servant G2532 and G652 apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G2975 to those who have obtained G2472 a like precious G4102 faith G2254 with us G1722 in G1343 the righteousness G2257 of our G2316 God G2532 and G4990 Savior, G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ:
2 G5485 Grace G5213 to you G2532 and G1515 peace G4129 be multiplied G1722 in G1922 the knowledge G2316 of God G2532 and G2424 of Jesus G2257 our G2962 Lord,
3 G5613 seeing that G846 his G2304 divine G1411 power G1433 has granted 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 who called G2248 us G1223 by G1391 his own glory G2532 and G703 virtue;
4 G1223 by G1223 which G1433 he has granted G2254 to us G5093 his precious G2532 and G3176 exceedingly great G1862 promises; G2443 that G1223 through G5130 these G1096 you may become G2844 partakers G5449 of the G2304 divine G5449 nature, G668 having escaped G5356 from the corruption G1722 that is in G2889 the world G1722 by G1939 lust.
5 G1161 Yes, G2532 and G846 for G5124 this G2023 very cause adding G5216 on your G3956 part all G4710 diligence, G5216 in your G4102 faith G3923 supply G703 moral excellence; G1161 and G1722 in G703 moral excellence, G1108 knowledge;
6 G1161 and G1722 in G1108 knowledge, G1466 self-control; G1161 and G1722 in G1466 self-control G5281 patience; G1161 and G1722 in G5281 patience G2150 godliness;
7 G1161 and G1722 in G2150 godliness G5360 brotherly affection; G1161 and G1722 in G5360 brotherly affection, G26 love.
8 G1063 For G5225 if G5023 these things G5225 are G5213 yours G2532 and G4121 abound, G2525 they make G5213 you G3756 to be not G692 idle G3761 nor G175 unfruitful G1922 to the knowledge G2962 of G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
9 G1063 For G3739 he who G3361 G3918 lacks G5023 these things G2076 is G5185 blind, G3467 seeing only what is near, G2983 having G3024 forgotten G2512 the cleansing G266 from G846 his G3819 old G266 sins.
10 G1352 Therefore, G80 brothers, G3123 be more G4704 diligent G4160 to make G5216 your G2821 calling G2532 and G1589 election G949 sure. G1063 For G4160 if you do G5023 these things, G4218 you will G4417 G3756 never G4218 G4417 stumble.
11 G1063 For G3779 thus G5213 you G4146 will be richly G2023 supplied G1529 with the entrance G1519 into G166 the eternal 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 G5279 remind G5209 you G104 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 I G2233 think it G1909 right, G3745 as long as G1510 I am G1722 in G5129 this G4638 tent, G1326 to stir G5209 you G1326 up G1722 by G5280 reminding G5209 you;
14 G1492 knowing G3754 that G595 the putting off G3450 of my G4638 tent G5031 comes swiftly, G2532 even G2531 as G2257 our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1213 made clear G3427 to me.
15 G5209 Yes, G4704 I will make every effort G4704 that G5209 you G1539 may always G4160 be able G3420 to remember G5130 these things G3326 even after G1699 my G1841 departure.
16 G1063 For G1811 we did G3756 not G1811 follow 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 we 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, G5107 when the G5456 voice G5342 came G846 to him G5259 from G1391 the G3169 Majestic G1391 Glory, G3778 "This G2076 is G3450 my G27 beloved G5207 Son, G1519 in G3739 whom G1473 I G2106 am well pleased."
18 G2249 We G191 heard G3778 this G5456 voice G5342 come G1537 out G3772 of heaven G2249 when we G5607 were G4862 with G846 him G1722 on G3735 the G40 holy G3735 mountain.
19 G2192 We have G949 the more sure G3056 word G4397 of prophecy; G2532 and G4160 you do G2573 well G4337 that you heed G5117 it, as G3088 to a lamp G5316 shining G1722 in G850 a dark G5117 place, G2193 until G3757 G2250 the day G1306 dawns, G2532 and G5459 the morning star G393 arises G1722 in G5216 your G2588 hearts:
20 G1097 knowing G5124 this G4412 first, G3754 that G3756 no G4394 prophecy G1124 of Scripture G1096 is G1955 of G3956 G2398 private G1955 interpretation.
