English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
17 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. 17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.
18 They said to you, "In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions." 18 They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires."
19 It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. 19 These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 20 But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.
21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 21 Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 22 Be merciful to those who doubt;
23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh. 23 snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear--hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
