World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a like precious faith with us in 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 Grace to you and peace be multiplied 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 seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by 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 whereby he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by 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 Yes, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence; and in moral excellence, knowledge; 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
6 and in knowledge, self-control; and in self-control patience; and in patience godliness; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
7 and in godliness brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love. 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
8 For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful to 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 who lacks these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from 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 Therefore, brothers, be more diligent to make your calling and election sure. For 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 thus will be richly supplied to you the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you of these things, though you know them, and are 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 I think it right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you; 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 tent comes swiftly, even as our Lord, Jesus Christ, 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 Yes, I will make every effort that you may always be able to remember these things even after my departure. 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 cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ, but 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 he received from God the Father honor and glory, when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am 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 This voice we heard come out of heaven, when we were with him in the holy mountain. 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
19 We have the more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns, and the day 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 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of private interpretation. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation.
21 For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke, being moved by 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.
