|Overview - 2 Peter 3|
|1||He assures them of the certainty of Christ's coming to judgment, against those scorners who dispute against it;|
|8||warning the godly, for the long patience of God, to hasten their repentance.|
|10||He describes also the manner how the world shall be destroyed;|
|11||exhorting them, from the expectation thereof, to all holiness of life;|
|16||and again to think the patience of God to tend to their salvation, as Paul wrote to them in his epistles.|
2 Peter 3:9 (King James Version)
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
