Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 From: Shim'on Kefa, a slave and emissary of Yeshua the Messiah To: Those who, through the righteousness of our God and of our Deliverer Yeshua the Messiah, have been given the same kind of trust as ours: 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 shalom be yours in full measure, as you come to a full knowledge of God and Yeshua our Lord. 2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 God's power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, through our knowing the One who called us to 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 valuable and superlatively great promises, so that through them you might come to share in God's nature and escape the corruption which evil desires have brought into 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 For this very reason, try your hardest to furnish 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 perseverance, perseverance 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 you have these qualities in abundance, they keep you from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 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 Indeed, whoever lacks them is blind, so shortsighted that he forgets that his past sins have been washed away. 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, try even harder to make your being called and chosen a certainty. For if you keep doing this, 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 Thus you will be generously supplied with everything you need to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah. 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 For this reason, I will always remind you about these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you already 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 And I consider it right to keep stirring you up with reminders, as long as I am in the tent of this body. 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,
14 I know that I will soon lay aside this tent of mine, as our Lord Yeshua the Messiah has made clear 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 do my best to see that after my exodus, you will be able to remember these things at all times. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.
16 For when we made known to you the power and the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, we did not rely on cunningly contrived myths. On the contrary, we saw his majesty with our own eyes. 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 we were there when he received honor and glory from God the Father; and the voice came to him from the grandeur of the Sh'khinah, saying, "This is my son, whom I love; I am well pleased with 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 We heard this voice come out of heaven when 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 Yes, we have the prophetic Word made very certain. You will do well to pay attention to it as to a light shining in a dark, murky place, until the Day dawns and the Morning Star rises 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, understand this: no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own; 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation.
21 for never has a prophecy come as a result of human willing - on the contrary, people moved by the Ruach HaKodesh spoke a message 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.
