¶ 2 Peter 1 v1-2

{ heart }   [2P] 1v1

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle
of JESUS CHRIST,
to them that have obtained like precious faith with us,
through the righteousness of GOD,
and our SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST:

{ heart }   [2P] 1v2

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you
through the knowledge of GOD,
and of JESUS our LORD,

¶ 2 Peter 1 v3-11

{ heart }   [2P] 1v3

According as HIS divine power hath given unto us
all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of HIM
THAT hath called us to glory and virtue.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v4

By which are given unto us
exceeding great and precious promises,
that by these ye might be partakers
of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption
that is in the world through lust.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v5

And besides this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith, virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

{ heart }   [2P] 1v6

And to knowledge, temperance;
and to temperance, patience;
and to patience, godliness;

{ heart }   [2P] 1v7

And to godliness, brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness, charity.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v8

For if these things be in you, and abound,
they make you that ye shall neither be barren,
nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our LORD
JESUS CHRIST.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v9

But he that lacketh these things, is blind,
and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten
that he was purged from his old sins.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v10

Wherefore, the rather, brethren,
give diligence to make your calling and election sure:
for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v11

For so an entrance
shall be ministered unto you abundantly
into the everlasting kingdom
of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

¶ 2 Peter 1 v12-21

{ heart }   [2P] 1v12

Wherefore I will not be negligent
to put you always in remembrance of these things,
though ye know them,
and be established in the present truth.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v13

Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle,
to stir you up, by putting you in remembrance:

{ heart }   [2P] 1v14

Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle,
even as our LORD JESUS CHRIST
hath showed me.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v15

Moreover, I will endeavor,
that ye may be able after my decease,
to have these things always in remembrance.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v16

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables,
when we made known unto you

 ‘The power and coming of our LORD
JESUS CHRIST,’ 

But were eyewitnesses of HIS majesty.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v17

For HE received from GOD the FATHER,
honor and glory,
when there came such a VOICE to HIM
from the excellent GLORY,


THIS is MY beloved SON,
in WHOM I AM well pleased.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v18

And THIS VOICE WHICH came from heaven
we heard, when we were with HIM in the holy mount.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v19

We have also a more sure word of prophecy,
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
until the day dawn, and the day star arise
in your hearts:

{ heart }   [2P] 1v20

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture
is of any private interpretation.

{ heart }   [2P] 1v21

For the prophecy came not in old time
by the will of man: but holy men of GOD spake
as they were moved by the HOLY GHOST.

» 2 Peter 2

¶ 2 Peter 2 v1-3

{ heart }   [2P] 2v1

But there were false prophets
also among the people,
even as there shall be false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the LORD THAT bought them,
and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v2

And many shall follow their pernicious ways,
by reason of whom the way of truth
shall be evil spoken of:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v3

And through covetousness shall they
with feigned words, make merchandise of you,
whose judgment now for a long time lingereth not,
and their damnation slumbereth not.

¶ 2 Peter 2 v4-22

{ heart }   [2P] 2v4

For if GOD spared not the Angels That sinned,
but cast Them down to hell,
and delivered Them into chains of darkness,
to be reserved unto judgment:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v5

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah
the eighth person a preacher of righteousness,
bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v6

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah
into ashes, condemned them with an overthrow,
making them an ensample
unto those that after should live ungodly:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v7

And delivered just Lot,
vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v8

(For that righteous man dwelling among them,
in seeing and hearing,
vexed his righteous soul from day to day,
with their unlawful deeds.)

{ heart }   [2P] 2v9

The LORD knoweth how to deliver the godly
out of temptations,
and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment
to be punished:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v10

But chiefly them that walk after the flesh
in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government.
Presumptuous are they; self-willed:
they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v11

Whereas Angels Which are greater in power
and might, bring not railing accusation against them
before the LORD.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v12

But these, as natural brute beasts
made to be taken and destroyed,
speak evil of the things that they understand not,
and shall utterly perish in their own corruption,

{ heart }   [2P] 2v13

And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness,
as they that count it pleasure to riot in the daytime:
Spots they are and blemishes,
sporting themselves with their own deceivings,
while they feast with you:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v14

Having eyes full of adultery
and that cannot cease from sin,
beguiling unstable souls:
an heart they have exercised with covetous practices:
cursed children:

{ heart }   [2P] 2v15

Which have forsaken the right way,
and are gone astray,
following the way of Balaam the son of Beor,
who loved the wages of unrighteousness,

{ heart }   [2P] 2v16

But was rebuked for his iniquity:
the dumb ass speaking with man's voice,
forbade the madness of the prophet.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v17

These are wells without water,
clouds that are carried with a tempest,
to whom the mist of darkness is reserved forever.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v18

For when they speak great swelling words of vanity,
they allure through the lusts of the flesh,
through much wantonness, those that were
clean escaped from them who live in error.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v19

While they promise them liberty,
they themselves are the servants of corruption:
for of whom a man is overcome,
of the same is he brought in bondage.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v20

For if after they have escaped the pollutions
of the world
through the knowledge of the LORD and SAVIOR
JESUS CHRIST,
they are again entangled therein, and overcome,
the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v21

For it had been better for them
not to have known the way of righteousness,
than after they have known it, to turn
from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

{ heart }   [2P] 2v22

But it is happened unto them
according to the true proverb:


The dog is turned to his own vomit again,
and the sow that was washed,
to her wallowing in the mire.

» 2 Peter 3

¶ 2 Peter 3 v1-4

{ heart }   [2P] 3v1

This second epistle (beloved) I now write unto you,
in both which I stir up your pure minds
by way of remembrance:

{ heart }   [2P] 3v2

That ye may be mindful of the words
which were spoken before by the holy prophets,
and of the commandment of us
the apostles of the LORD and SAVIOR:

{ heart }   [2P] 3v3

Knowing this first,
that there shall come in the last days scoffers,
walking after their own lusts,

{ heart }   [2P] 3v4

And saying,

 ‘Where is the promise of HIS coming?
For since the fathers fell asleep,
all things continue as they were
from the beginning of the creation’.

¶ 2 Peter 3 v5-10

{ heart }   [2P] 3v5

For this they willingly are ignorant of,
that by the WORD of GOD the heavens were of old,
and the earth standing out of the water,
and in the water,

{ heart }   [2P] 3v6

Whereby the world that then was,
being overflowed with water, perished.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v7

But the heavens and the earth which are now,
by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment,
and perdition of ungodly men.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v8

But (beloved) be not ignorant of this one thing,
that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v9

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.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v10

But the day of the LORD will come
as a thief in the night,
in the which the heavens shall pass away
with a great noise,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,
the earth also and the works that are therein
shall be burnt up.

¶ 2 Peter 3 v11-18

{ heart }   [2P] 3v11

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,
What manner of persons ought ye to be
in all holy conversation, and godliness,

{ heart }   [2P] 3v12

Looking for and hasting
unto the coming of the day of GOD,
wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v13

Nevertheless we, according to HIS promise,
look for new heavens, and a new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v14

Wherefore (beloved) seeing that ye look
for such things,
be diligent that ye may be found of HIM
in peace, without spot, and blameless.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v15

And account that the longsuffering of our LORD
is salvation,
even as our beloved brother Paul also,
according to the wisdom given unto him,
hath written unto you.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v16

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them
of these things,
in which are some things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest,
as they do also the other Scriptures,
unto their own destruction.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v17

Ye therefore, beloved,
seeing ye know these things before,
beware lest ye also being led away
with the error of the wicked,
fall from your own steadfastness.

{ heart }   [2P] 3v18

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge
of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST:
to HIM be glory both now and forever.
Amen.
