2 Peter 1
1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained an equally precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power has given to us all things that concern life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who has called us to glory and virtue:
4 By which are given to us exceedingly great and precious promises: that by these you may be sharers in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 And besides this, making every effort, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love.
8 For if these things are in you, and abound, they guarantee that you shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
