Therefore, dear friends, [because you]a are waiting for these [things], make every effort to be found at peace, spotless and unblemished in him.
And regard the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as also our dear brother Paul wrote to you, according to the wisdom that was given to him,
as [he does] also in all hisbc letters, speaking in them about these [things], in which there are some [things] hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable distort to their own destruction, as [they] also [do] the rest of the scriptures.
Therefore, dear friends, [because you]d know [this] beforehand, guard yourselves so that you do not lose your own safe position [because you]e have been led away by the error of lawless persons.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him [be] the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
