1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and [the] Saviour Jesus Christ:
1:2 Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;
1:4 whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in that world by lust.
1:5 Yea, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply virtue; and in [your] virtue knowledge;
1:6 and in [your] knowledge self-control; and in [your] self-control patience; and in [your] patience godliness;
1:7 and in [your] godliness brotherly kindness; and in [your] brotherly kindness love.
1:8 For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful unto the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9 For he that lacketh these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins.
1:10 Wherefore, brethren, give the more diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never stumble:
1:11 for thus shall be richly supplied unto you the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
1:12 Wherefore I shall be ready always to put you in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and are established in the truth which is with [you].
1:14 knowing that the putting off of my tabernacle cometh swiftly, even as our Lord Jesus Christ signified unto me.
1:15 Yea, I will give diligence that at every time ye may be able after my decease to call these things to remembrance.
1:18 and this voice we [ourselves] heard borne out of heaven, when we were with him in the holy mount.
1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of private interpretation.
