1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Savior, 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 has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in that world by lust.
1:5 Yes, and for this very cause adding on your part all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence; and in moral excellence, knowledge;
1:6 and in knowledge, self-control; and in self-control patience; and in patience godliness;
1:7 and in godliness brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love.
1:8 For if these things are yours and abound, they make you to be not idle nor unfruitful to the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1:9 For he who lacks these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins.
1:10 Therefore, brothers, be more diligent to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never stumble.
1:11 For thus will be richly supplied to you the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
1:12 Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth.
1:15 Yes, I will make every effort that you may always be able to remember these things even after my departure.
1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of private interpretation.
