“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 Saviour:”
King James Version (KJV)
3:2-3 Be the more mindful thereof, because ye know scoffers will come first - Before the Lord comes. Walking after their own evil desires - Here is the origin of the error, the root of libertinism. Do we not see this eminently fulfilled?
2Pe 3:2 That ye be mindful of the words which were spoken. Both of what was spoken by the prophets in the Old Testament, and what of what the apostles have now spoken. Of us the apostles. The Twelve, and Paul, who is alluded to in 2Pe 3:15.
