2 Peter 3:5; 2 Peter 3:7; 2 Peter 3:10; 2 Peter 3:13 (New American Standard)
For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water,
But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.
But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.
