2 Peter 3:11-18 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 1looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which 2the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the 3elements will melt with intense heat! 13 But according to His 4promise we are looking for 5new heavens and a new earth, 6in which righteousness dwells. 14 7Therefore, 8beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be 9found by Him in peace, 10spotless and blameless, 15 and regard the 11patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also 12our beloved brother Paul, 13according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of 14these things, 15in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and 16unstable distort, as they do also 17the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, 18beloved, knowing this beforehand, 19be on your guard so that you are not carried away by 20the error of 21unprincipled men and 22fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and 23knowledge of our 24Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 25To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
