The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Simon Peter, bondman and apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have received like precious faith with us through [the] righteousness of our God and Saviour 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 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in [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 As his divine power has given to us all things which relate to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us by glory and virtue, 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 through which he has given to us the greatest and precious promises, that through these ye may become partakers of [the] divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 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 But for this very reason also, using therewith all diligence, in your faith have also virtue, in virtue knowledge, 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
6 in knowledge temperance, in temperance endurance, in endurance godliness, 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
7 in godliness brotherly love, in brotherly love love: 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
8 for these things existing and abounding in you make [you] to be neither idle nor unfruitful as regards 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 for he with whom these things are not present is blind, short-sighted, and has forgotten the purging of his former 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 Wherefore the rather, brethren, use diligence to make your calling and election sure, for doing these things ye will never fall; 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 thus shall the entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be richly furnished unto you. 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Wherefore I will be careful to put you always in mind of these things, although knowing [them] and established in the present truth. 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 But I account it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting [you] in remembrance, 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,
14 knowing that the putting off of my tabernacle is speedily [to take place], as also our Lord Jesus Christ has manifested to me; 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.
15 but I will use diligence, that after my departure ye should have also, at any time, [in your power] to call to mind these things. 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 have not made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, following cleverly imagined fables, but having been 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 he received from God [the] Father honour and glory, such a voice being uttered to him by the excellent glory: This is my beloved Son, in whom *I* have found my delight; 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 this voice *we* heard uttered from heaven, being 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 And we have the prophetic word [made] surer, to which ye do well taking heed (as to a lamp shining in an obscure place) until [the] day dawn and [the] morning star arise 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 knowing this first, that [the scope of] no prophecy of scripture is had from its own particular interpretation, 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation.
21 for prophecy was not ever uttered by [the] will of man, but holy men of God spake under the power of [the] Holy Spirit. 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.
