RSV 3 First of all you must understand this, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own passions NIV 3 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. RSV 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were from the beginning of creation." NIV 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." RSV 5 They deliberately ignore this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago, and an earth formed out of water and by means of water, NIV 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. RSV 6 through which the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. NIV 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. RSV 7 But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist have been stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. NIV 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.
