14knowing that 1the layingaside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, 2as also our LordJesusChrist has madeclear to me.
And I will also be diligent that at anytimeafter my 3departure you will be able to callthesethings to mind.
For we did not followcleverlydevised4tales when we madeknown to you the 5power and coming of our LordJesusChrist, but we were 6eyewitnesses of His majesty.
For when He receivedhonor and glory from God the Father, such an a7utterance as this was bmade to Him by the 8MajesticGlory, "This is My belovedSon with whom I amwell-pleased "-
and we ourselvesheardthiscutterancemade from heaven when we were with Him on the 9holymountain.
19dSo we have10the propheticword made more11sure, to which you dowell to payattention as to 12a lampshining in a darkplace, until the 13daydawns and the 14morningstararises15in your hearts.
But 16knowthisfirst of all, that 17noprophecy of Scripture is a matter of one'sowninterpretation,
for 18noprophecy was evermade by an act of humanwill, but men19moved by the HolySpiritspoke from God.
