As his divine power has given to us all things which relate to life and godliness, through the knowledge a of him that has called us by glory b and virtue,
through which he has given c to us the greatest and precious promises, that through these ye may become partakers d of [the] divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

in knowledge temperance, g in temperance endurance, in endurance godliness,
