12Therefore, 1I will always be ready to remind you of thesethings, eventhough you already know them, and have been established in 2the truth which is present with you.
I consider it 3right, as long as I am in 4this earthly dwelling, to 5stir you up by way of reminder,
14knowing that 6the layingaside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, 7as also our LordJesusChrist has madeclear to me.
And I will also be diligent that at anytimeafter my 8departure you will be able to callthesethings to mind.
For we did not followcleverlydevised9tales when we madeknown to you the 10power and coming of our LordJesusChrist, but we were 11eyewitnesses of His majesty.
For when He receivedhonor and glory from God the Father, such an a12utterance as this was bmade to Him by the 13MajesticGlory, "This is My belovedSon with whom I amwell-pleased "-
and we ourselvesheardthiscutterancemade from heaven when we were with Him on the 14holymountain.
19dSo we have15the propheticword made more16sure, to which you dowell to payattention as to 17a lampshining in a darkplace, until the 18daydawns and the 19morningstararises20in your hearts.
But 21knowthisfirst of all, that 22noprophecy of Scripture is a matter of one'sowninterpretation,
for 23noprophecy was evermade by an act of humanwill, but men24moved by the HolySpiritspoke from God.
