The Bible - 2 Peter 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 Saviour Jesus Christ:
2 - Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 - According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 - Whereby are given unto 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.
5 - And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 - And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 - And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
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.
9 - But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10 - Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
11 - For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
12 - Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
13 - Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
14 - Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
15 - Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
16 - For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 - For he received from God the Father honour 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.
18 - And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
19 - We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
20 - Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 - For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
