1 G5026 This G1125 is G2235 now, G27 beloved, G1208 the second G1992 letter G1125 that I G1125 have written G5213 to you; G1722 and in G3739 both of them G1326 I stir up G5216 your G1271 sincere mind G1722 by G5280 reminding you;
2 G3415 that you should remember G4487 the words G4280 which were spoken before G5259 by G40 the holy G4396 prophets, G2532 and G1785 the commandments G2257 of us, G652 the apostles G2962 of the Lord G2532 and G4990 Savior:
3 G1097 knowing G5124 this G4412 first, G3754 that G1909 in G2078 the last G2250 days G1703 mockers G2064 will come, G4198 walking G2596 after G846 their G2398 own G1939 lusts,
4 G2532 and G3004 saying, G4226 "Where G2076 is G1860 the promise G3952 of G846 his G3952 coming? G1063 For, G575 from G3739 the day that G3962 the fathers G2837 fell asleep, G3956 all things G1265 continue G3779 as G575 they were from G746 the beginning G2937 of the creation."
5 G1063 For G5124 this G846 they G2309 willfully G2990 forget, G3754 that G2258 there were G3772 heavens G2990 from of G1597 old, G2532 and G1093 an earth G4921 formed G1537 out of G5204 water G2532 and G5204 amid water, G3056 by the word G2316 of God;
6 G1223 by G3739 which G2889 means the world G5119 that then was, G2626 being overflowed G5204 with water, G622 perished.
7 G1161 But G3772 the heavens G3568 that now G2532 are, and G846 the earth, G3056 by G846 the same G3056 word G1526 have been G2343 stored G4442 up for fire, G5083 being reserved G1519 against G2250 the day G2920 of judgment G2532 and G684 destruction G444 of G765 ungodly G444 men.
8 G1161 But G5209 G3361 don't G2990 forget G1520 this one G5124 thing, G27 beloved, G3754 that G3391 one G2250 day G3844 is with G2962 the Lord G5613 as G5507 a thousand G2094 years, G2532 and G5507 a thousand G2094 years G5613 as G3391 one G2250 day.
9 G2962 The Lord G1019 is G3756 not G1019 slow G1860 concerning his promise, G5613 as G5100 some G2233 count G1022 slowness; G235 but G3114 is patient G1519 with G2248 us, G3361 not G1014 wishing that G5100 any G622 should perish, G235 but that G3956 all G5562 should come G1519 to G3341 repentance.
10 G1161 But G2250 the day G2962 of the Lord G2240 will come G5613 as G2812 a thief G1722 in G3571 the night; G1722 in G3739 which G3772 the heavens G3928 will pass away G4500 with a great noise, G1161 and G4747 the elements G3089 will be dissolved G2741 with fervent heat, G2532 and G1093 the earth G2532 and G2041 the works G3588 that are G1722 in G846 it G2618 will be burned up.
11 G3767 Therefore since G3956 all G5130 these things G3089 will be destroyed G4217 like this, what kind G1163 of people ought G5209 you G5225 to be G1722 in G40 holy G391 living G2532 and G2150 godliness,
12 G4328 looking for G2532 and G4692 earnestly desiring G3952 the coming G2250 of the day G3739 of God, G1223 which G4448 will cause the burning G3772 heavens G3089 to be dissolved, G2532 and G4747 the elements G5080 will melt G2741 with fervent heat?
13 G1161 But, G2596 according to G846 his G1862 promise, G4328 we G4328 look for G2537 new G3772 heavens G2532 and G2537 a new G1093 earth, G1722 in G3739 which G1343 righteousness G2730 dwells.
14 G1352 Therefore, G27 beloved, G4328 seeing that you look for G5023 these things, G2147 be diligent to be found G1722 in G1515 peace, G784 without blemish G2532 and G298 blameless G1722 in G846 his sight.
15 G2532 G2233 Regard G3115 the patience G2962 of G2257 our G2962 Lord G4991 as salvation; G2531 even as G2257 our G27 beloved G80 brother G3972 Paul G2532 also, G2596 according to G4678 the wisdom G1325 given G846 to him, G1125 wrote G5213 to you;
16 G5613 as G2532 also G1722 in G3956 all G1992 of his letters, G2980 speaking G1722 in G846 them G4012 of G5130 these things. G1722 In G3739 those, G2076 there are G5100 some things G1425 that are hard to understand, G3739 which G261 the ignorant G2532 and G793 unsettled G4761 twist, G5613 as G2532 they also G3062 do to the other G1124 Scriptures, G4314 to G846 their G2398 own G684 destruction.
17 G5210 You G3767 therefore, G27 beloved, G4267 knowing G5442 these things beforehand, beware, G3363 lest G1601 being carried G4879 away G4106 with the error G113 of the wicked, G1601 you fall from G2398 your own G4740 steadfastness.
