Therefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them and are strengthened in the present truth.
Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance,
knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shown me.
Moreover I will endeavor that you may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
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.
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."
And this voice, which came from Heaven, we heard when we were with Him on the holy mount.
We have also a more sure word of prophecy, unto which 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,
knowing this first: that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in olden times by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
