Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Simon Peter, servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have taken with us the even-faith [to them that have taken with us the even much faith], in the rightwiseness 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 filled to you, by the knowing of our Lord Jesus Christ. [grace to you, and peace be full-filled, in the knowing of our Lord Jesus Christ.] 2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 How all things of his god-like virtue, that be to life and piety [that be into life and piety], be given to us, by the knowing of him, that called us for his own 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 By whom he gave to us most [and] precious promises; that by these things ye shall be made fellows of God's kind, and flee the corruption of that covetousness [fleeing the corruption of that covetousness], that is in the world. 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 And bring ye in all busyness, and minister in your faith virtue, and in virtue knowing [soothly in virtue science, or knowing]; 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
6 in knowing abstinence [in science soothly abstinence], in abstinence patience, in patience piety; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
7 in piety, love of brotherhood, and in love of brotherhood charity. 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
8 For if these be with you, and overcome [and overcome, or be plenteous], they shall not make you void, neither without fruit [nor without fruit], in the knowing 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 But to whom these be not ready, he is blind, and gropeth with his hand, and forgetteth the purging of his old trespasses. 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, brethren, be ye more busy [more busy ye], that by good works ye make your calling and choosing certain; for ye doing these things shall not do sin any time [soothly ye doing these things, shall not sin any time]. 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 the entering into [the] everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, shall be ministered to you plenteously. 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 For which thing I shall begin to admonish you evermore of these things; and I will that ye be knowing, and confirmed in this 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 Forsooth I deem justly [Forsooth I deem just], as long as I am in this tabernacle, to raise you in admonishing; 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,
14 and I am certain, that the putting away [for the putting off] of my tabernacle is swift, by this that our Lord Jesus Christ hath showed 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 shall give busyness, that oft after my death ye have mind of 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 not following unwise tales, have made known to you the virtue and the before-knowing [the virtue and prescience, or before-knowing,] of our Lord Jesus Christ; but we were made beholders of his greatness [but made beholders of his greatness]. 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 took of God the Father honour and glory, by such manner voice slid down to him from the great glory, This is my loved Son, in whom I have pleased to me; hear ye 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 brought from heaven, when we were with him in the holy hill. 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
19 And we have a firmer word of prophecy, to which ye giving attention do well, as to a lantern that giveth light in a dark place, till the day begin to give light, and the day star spring 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 And first understand ye this thing, that each prophecy of scripture is not made by proper interpretation; [First understanding this thing, that each prophecy of scripture is not made by proper, or own, 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 brought any time by man's will, but the holy men of God inspired with the Holy Ghost spake. 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.
