King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be 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 Yea, I think it meet, 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 shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.
15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. 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 followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but 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 honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent 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 And this voice which came from heaven we heard , when we were 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 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed , as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn , and the day 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 no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 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.
