2 Peter 1:3; 2 Peter 1:5; 2 Peter 1:20; 2 Peter 3:4; 2 Peter 3:9; 2 Peter 3:11; 2 Peter 3:16
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 to glory and virtue:
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
And saying , Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep , all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish , but that all should come to repentance.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved , what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest , as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
