2 Peter 3:11-16

MSG 11 Since everything here today might well be gone tomorrow, do you see how essential it is to live a holy life? NIV 11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives MSG 12 Daily expect the Day of God, eager for its arrival. The galaxies will burn up and the elements melt down that day - NIV 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. MSG 13 but we'll hardly notice. We'll be looking the other way, ready for the promised new heavens and the promised new earth, all landscaped with righteousness. NIV 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. MSG 14 So, my dear friends, since this is what you have to look forward to, do your very best to be found living at your best, in purity and peace. NIV 14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. MSG 15 Interpret our Master's patient restraint for what it is: salvation. Our good brother Paul, who was given much wisdom in these matters, NIV 15 Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. MSG 16 refers to this in all his letters, and has written you essentially the same thing. Some things Paul writes are difficult to understand. Irresponsible people who don't know what they are talking about twist them every which way. They do it to the rest of the Scriptures, too, destroying themselves as they do it. NIV 16 He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.
