View In My Bible
2 1Grace and peace be multiplied to you in 2the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord ; 3 seeing that His 3divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true 4knowledge of Him who 5called us aby His own glory and bexcellence. 4 cFor by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent 6promises, so that by them you may become 7partakers of the divine nature, having 8escaped the 9corruption that is in 10the world by lust. 5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith 11supply 12moral dexcellence, and in your moral excellence, 13knowledge, 6 and in your knowledge, 14self-control, and in your self-control, 15perseverance, and in your perseverance, 16godliness, 7 and in your godliness, 17brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor 18unfruitful in the true 19knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these qualities is 20blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his 21purification from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His 22calling and 23choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never 24stumble ; 11 for in this way the entrance into 25the eternal kingdom of our 26Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be 27abundantly 28supplied to you. 12 Therefore, 29I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in 30the truth which is present with you.
