Chapter 1 :: 2 Peter

2 Peter 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 Peter 1:2  -  Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

2 Peter 1:3  -  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:

2 Peter 1:4  -  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.

2 Peter 1:5  -  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

2 Peter 1:6  -  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

2 Peter 1:7  -  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

2 Peter 1:8  -  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.

2 Peter 1:9  -  But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

2 Peter 1:10  -  Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

2 Peter 1:11  -  For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:12  -  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.

2 Peter 1:13  -  Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;

2 Peter 1:14  -  Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.

2 Peter 1:15  -  Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.

2 Peter 1:16  -  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 majesty.

2 Peter 1:17  -  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.

2 Peter 1:18  -  And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

2 Peter 1:19  -  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:

2 Peter 1:20  -  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

2 Peter 1:21  -  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.
