Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:1 - This, now, beloved, a second letter to you I write, in both which I stir up your pure mind in reminding you,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:2 - to be mindful of the sayings said before by the holy prophets, and of the command of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:3 - this first knowing, that there shall come in the latter end of the days scoffers, according to their own desires going on,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:4 - and saying, 'Where is the promise of his presence? for since the fathers did fall asleep, all things so remain from the beginning of the creation;'

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:5 - for this is unobserved by them willingly, that the heavens were of old, and the earth out of water and through water standing together by the word of God,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:6 - through which the then world, by water having been deluged, was destroyed;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:7 - and the present heavens and the earth, by the same word are treasured, for fire being kept to a day of judgment and destruction of the impious men.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:8 - And this one thing let not be unobserved by you, beloved, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:9 - the Lord is not slow in regard to the promise, as certain count slowness, but is long-suffering to us, not counselling any to be lost but all to pass on to reformation,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:10 - and it will come -- the day of the Lord -- as a thief in the night, in which the heavens with a rushing noise will pass away, and the elements with burning heat be dissolved, and earth and the works in it shall be burnt up.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:11 - All these, then, being dissolved, what kind of persons doth it behove you to be in holy behaviours and pious acts?

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:12 - waiting for and hasting to the presence of the day of God, by which the heavens, being on fire, shall be dissolved, and the elements with burning heat shall melt;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:13 - and for new heavens and a new earth according to His promise we do wait, in which righteousness doth dwell;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:14 - wherefore, beloved, these things waiting for, be diligent, spotless and unblameable, by Him to be found in peace,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:15 - and the long-suffering of our Lord count ye salvation, according as also our beloved brother Paul -- according to the wisdom given to him -- did write to you,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:16 - as also in all the epistles, speaking in them concerning these things, among which things are certain hard to be understood, which the untaught and unstable do wrest, as also the other Writings, unto their own destruction.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:17 - Ye, then, beloved, knowing before, take heed, lest, together with the error of the impious being led away, ye may fall from your own stedfastness,

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 3:18 - and increase ye in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; to him is the glory both now, and to the day of the age! Amen.
