Chapter 1 2 3

X 2nd Peter

1:1  Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of YASHUWAH the Messiah, To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our Elohim and Saviour YASHUWAH the Messiah:

X 2nd Peter

1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of Elohim and of YASHUWAH our Master,

X 2nd Peter

1:3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and elohimliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

X 2nd Peter

1:4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

X 2nd Peter

1:5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge,

X 2nd Peter

1:6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance elohimliness,

X 2nd Peter

1:7 to elohimliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.

X 2nd Peter

1:8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X 2nd Peter

1:9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

X 2nd Peter

1:10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble;

X 2nd Peter

1:11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Master and Saviour YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X 2nd Peter

1:12 For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.

X 2nd Peter

1:13 Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you,

X 2nd Peter

1:14 knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah showed me.

X 2nd Peter

1:15 Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease.

X 2nd Peter

1:16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.

X 2nd Peter

1:17 For He received from Elohim the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

X 2nd Peter

1:18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

X 2nd Peter

1:19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;

X 2nd Peter

1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,

X 2nd Peter

1:21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of Elohim spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

X 2nd Peter

2:1  But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

X 2nd Peter

2:2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

X 2nd Peter

2:3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

X 2nd Peter

2:4 For if Elohim did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;

X 2nd Peter

2:5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the unelohimly;

X 2nd Peter

2:6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live unelohimly;

X 2nd Peter

2:7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked

X 2nd Peter

2:8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)—

X 2nd Peter

2:9 then the Master knows how to deliver the elohimly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,

X 2nd Peter

2:10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,

X 2nd Peter

2:11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Master.

X 2nd Peter

2:12 But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption,

X 2nd Peter

2:13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you,

X 2nd Peter

2:14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.

X 2nd Peter

2:15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

X 2nd Peter

2:16 but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet.

X 2nd Peter

2:17 These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.

X 2nd Peter

2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error.

X 2nd Peter

2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

X 2nd Peter

2:20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Master and Saviour YASHUWAH the Messiah, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.

X 2nd Peter

2:21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

X 2nd Peter

2:22 But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

X 2nd Peter

3:1  Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder),

X 2nd Peter

3:2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Master and Saviour,

X 2nd Peter

3:3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,

X 2nd Peter

3:4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

X 2nd Peter

3:5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of Elohim the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,

X 2nd Peter

3:6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

X 2nd Peter

3:7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of unelohimly men.

X 2nd Peter

3:8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Master one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

X 2nd Peter

3:9 The Master is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

X 2nd Peter

3:10 But the day of the Master will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

X 2nd Peter

3:11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and elohimliness,

X 2nd Peter

3:12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of Elohim, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

X 2nd Peter

3:13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

X 2nd Peter

3:14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;

X 2nd Peter

3:15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Master is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you,

X 2nd Peter

3:16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

X 2nd Peter

3:17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked;

X 2nd Peter

3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Master and Saviour YASHUWAH the Messiah. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
