2 Peter 1:5 — 2 Peter 2:9
5 And for this very reason also, 1adding all adiligence, 2supply bountifully in your 3bfaith 4cvirtue; and in virtue, 5dknowledge;
6 And in knowledge, 1aself-control; and in self-control, 2bendurance; and in endurance, 3cgodliness;
7 And in godliness, 1abrotherly love; and in brotherly love, 2blove.
8 For 1these things, 2existing in you and 3abounding, 4constitute you neither 5idle nor 6aunfruitful 7unto the full 8bknowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 For he in whom 1these things are not present is ablind, being 2shortsighted, 3having forgotten the bcleansing of his past sins.
10 1Therefore, brothers, be the more adiligent to 2make your bcalling and cselection dfirm, for doing 3these things you shall by no means ever estumble.
11 For in this way the aentrance into the 1eternal bkingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly and cbountifully 2supplied to you.
12 Therefore I will be ready always to aremind you concerning these things, even though you know them and have been bestablished in the 1present ctruth.
13 And I consider it aright, as long as I am in this 1btabernacle, to cstir you up by a reminder,
14 Knowing that the 1aputting off of my tabernacle is imminent, even as 2also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.
15 Moreover I will also be diligent that you may be able, after my 1aexodus, to bbring these things to mind at all times.
16 For we did not 1follow acleverly devised 2bmyths when we made known to you the cpower and 3dcoming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we became 4eeyewitnesses of that One’s 5majesty.
17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory, a avoice such as this being 1borne to Him by the 2magnificent glory: This is My Son, My Beloved, in whom I delight.
18 And this voice we heard being borne out of heaven while we were with Him in the aholy bmountain.
19 1And we have the aprophetic word made more bfirm, to which you do well to give heed as to a 2clamp shining in a 3dark place, until the 4dday dawns and the emorning star rises in your hearts;
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of aScripture is of 1one’s own 2interpretation;
21 1For no prophecy was ever 2borne by the will of man, but men spoke from God while being 2borne by the Holy aSpirit.
1 1But there arose also afalse prophets among the people, as also among you there will be bfalse teachers, who will 2csecretly bring in destructive 3heresies, even ddenying the 4eMaster who fbought them, bringing upon themselves swift 5destruction.
2 And many will 1follow their alicentiousness, because of whom the 2way of the truth will be breviled.
3 And in acovetousness, with bfabricated cwords, they will dmake merchandise of you, for whom the 1ejudgment 2of old is not idle, and their 3destruction does not slumber.
4 For if God did not spare the 1aangels who sinned but delivered them to gloomy bpits, having cast them down to 2Tartarus, they being ckept 3for 4judgment;
5 And did not spare the ancient aworld but guarded bNoah, a herald of 1crighteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the dungodly;
6 And having reduced to ashes the cities of aSodom and Gomorrah, condemned them to 1ruin, having set them as an bexample to those who intend to 2live an ungodly life,
7 And rescued righteous aLot, who had been oppressed by the blicentious 1manner of life of the 2lawless
8 (For that righteous man, who settled down among them, in seeing and hearing atormented his righteous soul day after day with their lawless works);
9 The Lord knows how to deliver the 1godly out of atrial and how to bkeep the 2unrighteous under punishment 3for the 4cday of 5judgment,
