2 Peter 1:
Chapter 1:21 Verses
61 2 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:
and of Jesus our Lord,
through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.
they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
and cannot see afar off,
and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
give diligence to make your calling and election sure:
for if ye do these things,
ye shall never fall:
though ye know them,
and be established in the present truth.
I think it meet,
as long as I am in this tabernacle,
to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory,
This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.
when we were with him in the holy mount.
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:
that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
2 Peter 2:
Chapter 2:22 Verses
61 2 Peter
even as there shall be false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that bought them,
and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not,
and their damnation slumbereth not.
but cast them down to hell,
and delivered them into chains of darkness,
to be reserved unto judgment;
but saved Noah the eighth person,
a preacher of righteousness,
bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
in seeing and hearing,
vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
and despise government.
Presumptuous are they,
they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
which are greater in power and might,
bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
as natural brute beasts,
made to be taken and destroyed,
speak evil of the things that they understand not;
and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time.
Spots they are and blemishes,
sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
and that cannot cease from sin;
beguiling unstable souls:
an heart they have exercised with covetous practices;
and are gone astray,
following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor,
who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
clouds that are carried with a tempest;
to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
they allure through the lusts of the flesh,
through much wantonness,
those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
they themselves are the servants of corruption:
for of whom a man is overcome,
of the same is he brought in bondage.
they are again entangled therein,
the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
after they have known it,
to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
The dog is turned to his own vomit again;
and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
2 Peter 3:
Chapter 3:18 Verses
61 2 Peter
I now write unto you;
in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
that there shall come in the last days scoffers,
walking after their own lusts,
Where is the promise of his coming?
for since the fathers fell asleep,
all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
that by the word of God the heavens were of old,
and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
being overflowed with water,
which are now,
by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
be not ignorant of this one thing,
that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.
as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward,
not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.
in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,
the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
according to his promise,
look for new heavens and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness.
seeing that ye look for such things,
be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace,
even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
speaking in them of these things;
in which are some things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest,
as they do also the other scriptures,
unto their own destruction.
seeing ye know these things before,
beware lest ye also,
being led away with the error of the wicked,
fall from your own stedfastness.
and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and for ever.
