3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us tob glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barrenc nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 But he that lacketh* these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten* that he was purged from his old sins.
13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto 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:
21 For the prophecy came not in old timed by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
