1Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:G4826G4074G1401G2532G652G2424G5547G2975G2472G4102G2254G1722G1343G2316G2532G2257G4990G2424G5547 2Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;G5485G2532G1515G4129G5213G1722G1922G2316G2532G2424G2257G2962 3seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.G5613G846G2304G1411G1433G2254G3956G4314G2222G2532G2150G1223G1922G2564G2248G1223G1391G2532G703 4For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of [the] divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.G1223G3739G1433G2254G3176G2532G5093G1862G2443G1223G5130G1096G2844G2304G5449G668G5356G1722G2889G1722G1939 5Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in [your] moral excellence, knowledge;G2532G1161G846G5124G3923G3956G4710G2023G1722G5216G4102G703G1161G1722G703G1108 6and in [your] knowledge, self-control, and in [your] self-control, perseverance, and in [your] perseverance, godliness;G1161G1722G1108G1466G1161G1722G1466G5281G1161G1722G5281G2150 7and in [your] godliness, brotherly kindness, and in [your] brotherly kindness, love.G1161G1722G2150G5360G1161G1722G5360G26 8For if these [qualities] are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.G1063G5023G5225G5213G2532G4121G2525G3756G692G3761G175G1519G1922G2257G2962G2424G5547 9For he who lacks these [qualities] is blind [or] short-sighted, having forgotten [his] purification from his former sins.G1063G3739G3361G3918G5023G2076G5185G3467G3024G2983G2512G846G3819G266 10Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble;G1352G3123G80G4704G4160G5216G2821G2532G1589G949G1063G4160G5023G4218G4417G3364G4218G4417 11for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.G1063G3779G1529G2023G5213G4146G1519G166G932G2257G2962G2532G4990G2424G5547 12Therefore, I shall always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you [already] know [them], and have been established in the truth which is present with [you.]G1352G272G3756G272G5279G5209G104G5279G4012G5130G2539G1492G2532G4741G1722G3918G225 13And I consider it right, as long as I am in this [earthly] dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,G1161G2233G1342G1909G3745G1510G1722G5129G4638G1326G5209G1326G1722G5280 14knowing that the laying aside of my [earthly] dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.G1492G3754G5031G2076G595G3450G4638G2532G2531G2257G2962G2424G5547G1213G3427 15And I will also be diligent that at any time after my departure you may be able to call these things to mind.G1161G2532G4704G5209G2192G3326G1699G1841G4160G5130G1539G3420 16For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.G1063G1811G3756G1811G4679G3454G1107G5213G1411G2532G3952G2257G2962G2424G5547G235G1096G2030G1565G3168 17For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, "This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased"—G1063G2983G3844G2316G3962G5092G2532G1391G5342G5107G5456G846G5259G3169G1391G3778G2076G3450G27G5207G1519G3739G1473G2106 18and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.G2532G5026G5456G5342G1537G3772G2249G191G5607G4862G846G1722G40G3735 19And [so] we have the prophetic word [made] more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.G2192G2532G949G3056G4397G3739G4160G2573G4337G5613G3088G5316G1722G850G5117G2193G3739G2250G1306G2532G5459G393G1722G5216G2588 20But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is [a matter] of one's own interpretation,G1097G5124G4412G3754G3756G3956G4394G1124G1096G2398G1955 21for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.G1063G4394G5342G3756G4218G2307G444G235G40G444G2316G2980G5342G5259G40G4151
