061:2


061:Peter 001:001
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 Saviour Jesus Christ:


061:001:002
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God,
and of Jesus our Lord,


061:001:003
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:


061:001:004
Whereby 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.


061:001:005
And beside this,
giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;


061:001:006
And to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;


061:001:007
And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.


061:001:008
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.


061:001:009
But he that lacketh these things is blind,
and cannot see afar off,
and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.


061:001:010
Wherefore the rather,
brethren,
give diligence to make your calling and election sure:
for if ye do these things,
ye shall never fall:


061:001:011
For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.


061:001:012
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.


061:001:013
Yea,
I think it meet,
as long as I am in this tabernacle,
to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;


061:001:014
Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle,
even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.


061:001:015
Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.


061:001:016
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.


061:001:017
For he received from God the Father honour 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.


061:001:018
And this voice which came from heaven we heard,
when we were with him in the holy mount.


061:001:019
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:


061:001:020
Knowing this first,
that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.


061:001:021
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.
