Second Peter 1


1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to
 them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the
 righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:
1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge
 of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
1:3 According as his divine power hath given to us all things
 that [pertain] to life and godliness, through the knowledge of
 him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
1:4 Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious
 promises; that by these ye might be partakers of the divine
 nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world
 through lust.
1:5 And besides this, giving all diligence, add to your faith
 virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and
 to patience godliness;
1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly
 kindness charity.
1:8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you
 that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the
 knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see
 afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purified from his old
 sins.
1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your
 calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall
 never fall:
1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly
 into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus
 Christ.
1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in
 remembrance of these things, though ye know [them], and are
 established in the present truth.
1:13 Indeed, I think it meet, as long as I am in this
 tabernacle, to stir you up by putting [you] in remembrance;
1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off [this] my tabernacle,
 even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shown me.
1:15 Moreover, I will endeavor that ye may be able, after my
 decease, to have these things always in remembrance.
1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we
 made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus
 Christ, but were eye-witnesses of his majesty.
1:17 For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when
 there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This
 is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we
 were with him on the holy mount.
1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; to which ye do
 well that ye take heed, as to a light that shineth in a dark
 place, until the day dawn, and the day-star arise in your
 hearts:
1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of
 any private interpretation.
1:21 For prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but
 holy men of God spoke [as they were] moved by the Holy Spirit.
