Purpose of This Letter

(Gen 6:5—8:22 )
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:1 - This is now, beloved, the second letter that I have written to you; and in both of them I stir up your sincere mind by reminding you;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:2 - that you should remember the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and the mitzvot of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior:

The Coming Day of the Lord

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:3 - knowing this first, that in the last days mockers will come, walking after their own lusts,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:4 - and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? For, from the day that the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:5 - For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an eretz formed out of water and amid water, by the word of God;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:6 - by which means the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:7 - But the heavens that now are, and the eretz, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:8 - But don't forget this one thing, beloved, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:9 - The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some count slowness; but is patient with us, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

A New Heaven and Earth

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:10 - But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, and the eretz and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:11 - Therefore since all these things are thus to be destroyed, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy living and godliness,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:12 - looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of God, by reason of which the heavens being on fire will be dissolved, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:13 - But, according to his promise, we look for new heavens and a new eretz, in which dwells righteousness.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:14 - Therefore, beloved, seeing that you look for these things, be diligent to be found in shalom, without blemish and blameless in his sight.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:15 - Regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; even as our beloved brother Sha'ul also, according to the wisdom given to him, wrote to you;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:16 - as also in all of his letters, speaking in them of these things. In those are some things hard to be understood, which the ignorant and unsettled twist, as they also do to the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:17 - You therefore, beloved, knowing these things beforehand, beware lest, being carried away with the error of the wicked, you fall from your own steadfastness.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:18 - But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Yeshua the Messiah. To him be the glory both now and forever. Amein.
