1 Simon Peter, a seruant & an Apostle of Iesus Christ, to them that haue obtained like precious Faith with vs, through the righteousnes of God, and our Sauiour Iesus Christ.

2 Grace and peace be multiplied vnto you through the knowledge of God, and of Iesus our Lord,

3 According as his diuine power hath giuen vnto vs all things that pertain vnto life and godlines, through the knowledge of him that hath called vs to glory and vertue.

4 Whereby are giuen vnto vs exceeding great and precious promises, that by these you might bee partakers of the diuine nature, hauing escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And besides this, giuing all diligence, adde to your faith, vertue; and to vertue knowledge;

6 And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godlinesse;

7 And to godlinesse, brotherly kindnesse; and to brotherly kindnesse, charitie.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that yee shall neither be barren, nor vnfruitfull in the knowledge of our Lord Iesus Christ.

9 But hee that lacketh these things, is blind, and cannot see farre off, and hath forgotten that hee was purged from his old sinnes.

10 Wherefore, the rather, brethren, giue diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye doe these things, ye shall neuer fall.

11 For so an entrance shall be ministred vnto you abundantly, into the euerlasting kingdome of our Lord and Sauiour Iesus Christ.

12 Wherefore I wil not be negligent to put you alwayes in remembrance of these things, though yee know them, and be stablished in the present trueth.

13 Yea, I thinke it meete, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stirre you vp, by putting you in remembrance:

14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my Tabernacle, euen as our Lord Iesus Christ hath shewed mee.

15 Moreouer, I will endeuour, that you may bee able after my decease, to haue these things alwayes in remembrance.

16 For wee haue not followed cunningly deuised fables, when wee made knowen vnto you the power and comming of our Lord Iesus Christ, but were eye witnesses of his Maiestie.

17 For hee receiued from God the Father, honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloued Sonne in whom I am well pleased.

18 And this voice which came from heauen wee heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

19 We haue also a more sure word of prophecie, whereunto yee doe well that ye take heede, as vnto a light that shineth in a darke place, vntill the day dawne, and the day starre arise in your hearts:

20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any priuate Interpretation:

21 For the prophecie came not in olde time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moued by the holy Ghost.

Virgil Larson's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment about verse 19 on 9/13/2015, 7:24am...

Which is it? We have also a more sure word of prophecy or So we have the prophetic word made more sure, I cannot tell since I am not a greek scholar, But I do know which one makes more sense to me, and I do appreciate that the American Standard version indicates that the words so and made are supplied suggesting to me that even the translators are not that sure. I feel it is very significant that Peter s experience at the transfiguration did not sustain him during the events of the crucifixion. . Because of his faulty understanding of prophecy Peter denied Jesus. Nicodemus on the other hand remembered the words of Jesus, the son of man must be lifted up and boldly came forward. The words of Jesus to his disciples I am telling you before it comes to pass so that when it does occur, you may believe that I am He, came true for Nicodemus. But even though the disciples on the road to Emmaus had heard that Jesus was raised from the dead, they were still deeply depressed because of a faulty understand of prophecy. So Jesus hid his identity until after he gave them a through bible study on prophecy. Luke 24:13-25. Previously Jesus taught that an understanding of prophecy will protect believers from the overwhelming deception of false teachers and false Christs who will work great sings and wonders. Our safety is in the word of God, not miracles. Matthew 24 Mark 13, Revelation 13.


Pst. Evergreat's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment about verse 19 on 9/13/2015, 1:06am...

Let's understand the word SURE it means certain, reliable, confirmed. Base on this fact there is no word of the scripture that is not reliable, certain and without confirmation, as written in Jer. 1vs12: "...For I will hasten my word to perform it". If there is no assurance of the word then it's not of God, for every word of God is a prophecy that is reliable.


Isaiah Ayoola's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 9/03/2015, 12:04am...

"Giving all diligence" means to be painstaking, this is to say that you must be ready to give all it takes to add virtue moral excellence to your faith in God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Moral excellence make us a genuine born again Christian. Faith that doesn't correspond with Godly moral excellence living is fake. "Not all that call me Lord Lord will be saved" Jesus said. May we not miss heaven in Jesus name. Amen


Dwight Hartmark's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment about verse 19 on 8/26/2015, 7:09pm...

The Bible in its completed state, is reliable above anything else. Even more than centuries of tradition. The Bible is to be valued and trusted over our very own personal experiences.


Ruth Pollard's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment on 8/11/2015, 12:01pm...

I lead me to believe that I am to constantly to study Gods' word and believe every word spoken by the prophets which was inspired by the Holy Ghost and Jesus Christ which came from our Lord and saviour Jehovah as known as Yahweh. Know that we must trust in God for everything, knowing God gave his son Jesus Christ all keys , that when we knock the door will be open, ask and it shall be given, seek and you will find. Remember that our saviour Jesus Christ was given all keys, the last keys was taken was to death and he'll which will be destroyed at the resurrection it will be destroyed with Satan and all evil. No more sickness , crying, death, worrying, hunger, fear, pain and hate, nothing but love for one another, under one government that is the kingdom of God. Blessed to see the day comes when we are all one more wars heaven here on earth. Amen and Amen.Faith is the substance of things hope for , the evidence of things not seen. Christ gives me hope. I walk by faith not by sight. Lord keep me faithful. Let me not lean toward my own understanding, but in all things acknowledge the Lord, you will direct my path. Help me with my faith , trust, and understanding. Knowing that you will work things out in my favor. You will never leave me alone nor would you forsake me, You will be with me to the end of the world and the beginning of the new world to come. Thank you so very much, Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Again I apologize for my sins, redeem me to you today and forever more, Amen and again I say Amen. Bless my family, bless our finances.


Lou's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment about verse 20 on 7/17/2015, 3:49pm...

Certainly private interpretation is wrong if it goes public without the noble study of the Bereans in Acts 17:11 "Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Certainly our understanding might be wrong, but it can also be understood with God 's knowledge, if we truly believe God will answer our knock. "Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find knock, and it will be opened to you. To Joe above, How does the Catholic Church, Protestant churches, or anyone for that matter, square themselves with 2 Peter 1:20? Answer: Acts 17: 11 above, but they have to be honest with themselves and not their traditional doctrines of men. After all if we understand private interpretation is wrong than why do we have one Bible and one God and have hundreds of conflicting teaching and practices if we are all following God 's Understanding Roams 16:16.


Grace's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment on 7/10/2015, 2:39am...

Verses 5-8, we, Christians are urged to make every effort to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in our lives.It is not just about getting saved it is about working out our salvation to be more like Christ. If our lives are going to be productive and fruitful, we ought to go beyond just confessing Christ as Lord and allow Him to really be Lord over our lives to be able to transform us into His likeliness. For us to be fruitful, it is all about Christ


Mamboy's 2 Peter Chapter 1 comment about verse 12 on 6/18/2015, 11:09pm...

We need constant remembrance of the goodness of the scripture that brings us to repentance.
