2 Peter 3:1-6 NCV

1 My friends, this is the second letter I have written you to help your honest minds remember.
2 I want you to think about the words the holy prophets spoke in the past, and remember the command our Lord and Savior gave us through your apostles.
3 It is most important for you to understand what will happen in the last days. People will laugh at you. They will live doing the evil things they want to do.
4 They will say, "Jesus promised to come again. Where is he? Our fathers have died, but the world continues the way it has been since it was made."
5 But they do not want to remember what happened long ago. By the word of God heaven was made, and the earth was made from water and with water.
6 Then the world was flooded and destroyed with water.
