Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know [them], and are established in the present truth.
Indeed, 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 ye 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 to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye-witnesses 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; to which ye do well that ye take heed, as to 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 prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke [as they were] moved by the Holy Spirit.
