Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Simeon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who did obtain a like precious faith with us in 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 to you, and peace be multiplied in the acknowledgement 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 all things to us His divine power (the things pertaining unto life and piety) hath given, through the acknowledgement of him who did call us through glory and worthiness, 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 to us the most great and precious promises have been given, that through these ye may become partakers of a divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world in 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 And this same also -- all diligence having brought in besides, superadd in your faith the worthiness, and in the worthiness the knowledge, 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
6 and in the knowledge the temperance, and in the temperance the endurance, and in the endurance the piety, 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
7 and in the piety the brotherly kindness, and in the brotherly kindness the love; 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
8 for these things being to you and abounding, do make [you] neither inert nor unfruitful in regard to the acknowledging 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, dim-sighted, having become forgetful of the cleansing of his old 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, be diligent to make stedfast your calling and choice, for these things doing, ye may 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 so, richly shall be superadded to you the entrance into the age-during reign of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Wherefore, I will not be careless always to remind you concerning these things, though, having known them, and having been 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 and I think right, so long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up in reminding [you], 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,
14 having known that soon is the laying aside of my tabernacle, even as also our Lord Jesus Christ did shew to 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 be diligent that also at every time ye have, after my outgoing, power to make to yourselves the remembrance 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, skilfully devised fables not having followed out, we did make known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but eye-witnesses having become 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 having received from God the Father honour and glory, such a voice being borne to him by the excellent glory: `This is My Son -- the beloved, in whom I was well pleased;' 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 -- we did hear, out of heaven borne, being with him in the holy mount. 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
19 And we have more firm the prophetic word, to which we do well giving heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, till day may dawn, and a morning star may 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 this first knowing, that no prophecy of the Writing doth come of private exposition, 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation.
21 for not by will of man did ever prophecy come, but by the Holy Spirit borne on holy men of God 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.
