||New International Version (NIV)
9 the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment to the day of judgment;
9 if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
