Precious and Magnificent Promises

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:1 -

[fn]Simeon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have received the same [fn]kind of faith as ours, [fn]by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:2 - Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the full knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:3 - seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the full knowledge of Him who called us [fn]by His own glory and [fn]excellence.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:4 - [fn]For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:5 - Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral [fn]excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:6 - and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:7 - and in your godliness, [fn]brotherly kindness, and in your [fn]brotherly kindness, [fn]love.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:8 - For if these things are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:9 - For in whom these things are not present, that one is blind, being nearsighted, having [fn]forgotten the purification from his former sins.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:10 - Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and choosing sure; for in doing these things, you will never stumble;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:11 - for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:12 -

Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been strengthened in the truth which is present with you.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:13 - I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:14 - knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has indicated to me.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:15 - And I will also be diligent that at any time after my [fn]departure you will be able to call these things to mind.

Eyewitnesses of Jesus

(Mat 17:5; Mar 9:7; Luk 9:35 )
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:16 -

For we did not make known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, following cleverly devised myths, but being eyewitnesses of His majesty.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:17 - For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an [fn]utterance as this was [fn]made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”—
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:18 - and we ourselves heard this [fn]utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:19 -

[fn]And we have as more sure the prophetic word, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:20 - Know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes by one’s own interpretation.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:21 - For no prophecy was ever made by the will of man, but men being moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
