Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
8 For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in 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 whoever lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten that he was cleansed 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, brethren, be the more zealous to confirm your call and election, for if you do this you will never fall; 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 so there will be richly provided for you an 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.
