91The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise 2as some count slowness, but 3is patient toward you,a4 not wishing that any should perish, but 5that all should reach repentance.
But 6the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then 7the heavens will pass away with a roar, and 8the heavenly bodiesb will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.c
Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, 9what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness,
1210waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and 11the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn!
But according to his promise we are waiting for 12new heavens and a new earth 13in which righteousness dwells.
