Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Simeon Peter, a slave and an apostle of Jesus Christ: To those who have obtained a faith of equal privilege with ours through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ. 1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:
2 May grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 For His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. 3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
4 By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
6 knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness, 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
7 godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being useless or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted, and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins. 9 But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
10 Therefore, brothers, make every effort to confirm your calling and election, because if you do these things you will never stumble. 10 Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall,
11 For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied to you. 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Therefore I will always remind you about these things, even though you know them and are established in the truth you have. 12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.
13 I consider it right, as long as I am in this tent, to wake you up with a reminder, 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,
14 knowing that I will soon lay aside my tent, as our Lord Jesus Christ has also shown me. 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.
15 And I will also make every effort that after my departure you may be able to recall these things at any time. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.
16 For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 16 We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, a voice came to Him from the Majestic Glory: This is My beloved Son. I take delight in Him! 17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."
18 And we heard this voice when it came from heaven while we were with Him on the holy mountain. 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
19 So we have the prophetic word strongly confirmed. You will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dismal place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 19 And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
20 First of all, you should know this: no prophecy of Scripture comes from one's own interpretation, 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation.
21 because no prophecy ever came by the will of man; instead, moved by the Holy Spirit, men spoke from God. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
