2 Peter 1:13; 2 Peter 2:1; 2 Peter 2:8; 2 Peter 2:12; 2 Peter 3:1
I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
(for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds ),
But these, like unreasoning animals, born as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed,
This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder,
