2nd Epistle of Peter   chapter 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 
    14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my 
   tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed 
    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 
    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. 2nd Peter chapter 2
