Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:1 - Simeon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who did obtain a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ:

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:2 - Grace to you, and peace be multiplied in the acknowledgement of God and of Jesus our Lord!

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:3 - As all things to us His divine power (the things pertaining unto life and piety) hath given, through the acknowledgement of him who did call us through glory and worthiness,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:4 - through which to us the most great and precious promises have been given, that through these ye may become partakers of a divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world in desires.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:5 - And this same also -- all diligence having brought in besides, superadd in your faith the worthiness, and in the worthiness the knowledge,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:6 - and in the knowledge the temperance, and in the temperance the endurance, and in the endurance the piety,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:7 - and in the piety the brotherly kindness, and in the brotherly kindness the love;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:8 - for these things being to you and abounding, do make you neither inert nor unfruitful in regard to the acknowledging of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:9 - for he with whom these things are not present is blind, dim-sighted, having become forgetful of the cleansing of his old sins;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:10 - wherefore, the rather, brethren, be diligent to make stedfast your calling and choice, for these things doing, ye may never stumble,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:11 - for so, richly shall be superadded to you the entrance into the age-during reign of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:12 - Wherefore, I will not be careless always to remind you concerning these things, though, having known them, and having been established in the present truth,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:13 - and I think right, so long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up in reminding you,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:14 - having known that soon is the laying aside of my tabernacle, even as also our Lord Jesus Christ did shew to me,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:15 - and I will be diligent that also at every time ye have, after my outgoing, power to make to yourselves the remembrance of these things.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:16 - For, skilfully devised fables not having followed out, we did make known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but eye-witnesses having become of his majesty --

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:17 - for having received from God the Father honour and glory, such a voice being borne to him by the excellent glory: 'This is My Son -- the beloved, in whom I was well pleased;'

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:18 - and this voice we -- we did hear, out of heaven borne, being with him in the holy mount.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:19 - And we have more firm the prophetic word, to which we do well giving heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, till day may dawn, and a morning star may arise -- in your hearts;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:20 - this first knowing, that no prophecy of the Writing doth come of private exposition,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 1:21 - for not by will of man did ever prophecy come, but by the Holy Spirit borne on holy men of God spake.
