Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you, in both of which I stir up your purity of mind by way of remembrance, 1 Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking.
2 that ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 2 I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.
3 knowing this first: that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts 3 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.
4 and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." 4 They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."
5 For of this they are willfully ignorant: that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water, 5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.
6 whereby the world as it then was, being overflowed with water, perished. 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.
