2nd Peter Chapter 1

2nd Peter 1:1 Simon1 Peter,2 a slave and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained an equally priceless faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:

2nd Peter 1:2 grace and peace be multiplied to you through the full knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

2nd Peter 1:3 therefore His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and moral excellence:

2nd Peter 1:4 through which are given to us peerless and precious promises: that through these you might be companions of the divine nature, escaping from the corruption that is in the world’s cravings.

2nd Peter 1:5 Now these things also, bringing in all diligence, supply in your faith moral excellence; and to moral excellence knowledge;

2nd Peter 1:6 and to knowledge self-control; and to self-control perseverance; and to perseverance dedication;

2nd Peter 1:7 and to dedication brotherly love; and to brotherly love divine love.

2nd Peter 1:8 For these things being present in you, and increasing, they constitute you not inactive nor unfruitful in the full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2nd Peter 1:9 But he that these things are not present is blind, and is near sighted, and being forgetful that he was cleansed from his past sins.

2nd Peter 1:10 Therefore instead, brothers, be diligent to make your calling and choice definite: for if you practice these things, you will not ever stumble:

2nd Peter 1:11 therefore in this manner the way in will be supplied to you richly into the perpetual kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

2nd Peter 1:12 Therefore I will always be about to be reminding you of these things, though you know them, and having been established in the present reality.

2nd Peter 1:13 Yes, I regard it right, as long as I am in this tent, to wake you up by putting you in remembrance;

2nd Peter 1:14 knowing that I must shortly put away my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ has revealed to me.

2nd Peter 1:15 Moreover, I will endeavor that you may be able after my exodus to make a memory of these things always.

2nd Peter 1:16 For we have not carried out expertly concocted myths, when we made known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His Majesty.

2nd Peter 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.

2nd Peter 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

2nd Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; where you do well to pay attention, as to a lamp that shines in a dismal place, until the day dawn, and the morning star rises in your hearts:

2nd Peter 1:20 knowing this first, that not ever is prophecy of the Scripture brought forth from a private source.

2nd Peter 1:21 For no prophecy was ever produced any time by the will of man: but men spoke from God as they were moved along by the Holy Spirit.
