2Peter 1:1 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.

2Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

2Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.(God made you righteous. You didn't have to do anything), through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue;

2Peter 1:4 whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises; that by these ye might be ('might be' not in original; it means 'you are').partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (lust here means, we inordinately focus upon that which is subject to perishing – the physical; lust is selfishness that is on the pathway away from the ways that truly do help both you and others -Jeremiah 21:8 "...I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.").

2Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue and to virtue knowledge.

2Peter 1:6 And to knowledge temperance (self control – making yourself do those things you just don't want to do but understand to be right; self control takes discipline) and to temperance patience and to patience godliness; (Colossians 3:1-3)

2Peter 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness and to brotherly kindness charity.

2Peter 1:8 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.

2Peter 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

2Peter 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure. For if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.

2Peter 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

2Peter 1:13 Yea, I think it meet (fitting), as long as I am in this tabernacle (he's speaking of his 'temporary dwelling', his body), to stir you up by putting you in remembrance.

2Peter 1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle (a tabernacle is a dwelling place; we are spirits that dwell in our bodies), even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.

2Peter 1:16 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.

2Peter 1:17 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.

2Peter 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

2Peter 1:19 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.

2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

2Peter 1:21 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.
