King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
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 this they willingly are ignorant of , 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 that then was, being overflowed with water, perished : 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store , reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
