2 Peter 3

2Pt 3:1 Loved ones, this is already the second letter I’m writing to you, waking you up and reminding you of the sincere understanding of what has been declared before.
2Pt 3:2 I am reminding you of what was declared before by the holy prophets, and the teachings of your Ambassadors of the Master and Savior.
2Pt 3:3 Understand above all that in the last days mockers will come (because mockery is what they crave),
2Pt 3:4 saying, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? From the time our ancestors died until now, everything goes on as it has from the beginning of creation.”
2Pt 3:5 For they are deliberately ignorant of this: that the ancient heavens and earth were made out of water and held together in water by the word of God.
2Pt 3:6 The world at that time was destroyed by the Flood,
2Pt 3:7 but the current heavens and earth have been reserved by that same word to be burned, being kept for the day of judgment and the destruction of irreverent people.
2Pt 3:8 Now do not let this one thing escape you, loved ones: To the Master, one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2Pt 3:9 The Master is not late with his promise, as some consider lateness, but is being patient with you. He does not intend for any to die, but to make room for all to come to a change of mind.
2Pt 3:10 Yet the Day of the Master will come as a thief; the heavens will disappear with a roar and the elements will be dissolved by burning, so that everything done in the earth will be discovered.
2Pt 3:11 Seeing that everything will disintegrate in this way, what kind of people should you be? You behavior should be devout,
2Pt 3:12 anticipating and hurrying along the arrival of the Day of God when the heavens will be burned up and the elements consumed by fire.
2Pt 3:13 But according to his promise, we hope for a new heavens and earth where justice lives.
2Pt 3:14 So, loved ones, hope for these things. Make every effort to be found in peace, spotless and flawless in him.
2Pt 3:15 And consider the patient salvation of our Master, as our dear brother Paul writes to you in the wisdom he was given.
2Pt 3:16 He writes about all these things, talking about them in his letters. Some of it is hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist as they do with the other scriptures, to their own destruction.
2Pt 3:17 You then, loved ones, know this ahead of time: Be on guard so that you are not led away into deception by those with loose morals, making you lose your resolve.
2Pt 3:18 Yet grow in the favor and knowledge of our Master and Savior Jesus the Anointed. All honor to him, now and up to the first day of eternity, absolutely!
2Pt 3:1 ταυτην ηδη αγαπητοι δευτεραν ὑμιν γραφω επιστολην εν αἱς διεγειρω ὑμων εν ὑπομνησει την ειλικρινη διανοιαν
2Pt 3:2 μνησθηναι των προειρημενων ῥηματων ὑπο των ἁγιων προφητων και της των αποστολων ὑμων εντολης του κυριου και σωτηρος
2Pt 3:3 τουτο πρωτον γινωσκοντες ὁτι ελευσονται επ εσχατων των ἡμερων εν εμπαιγμονη εμπαικται κατα τας ιδιας επιθυμιας αυτων πορευομενοι
2Pt 3:4 και λεγοντες που εστιν ἡ επαγγελια της παρουσιας αυτου αφ᾽ ἡς γαρ οἱ πατερες εκοιμηθησαν παντα οὑτως διαμενει απ᾿ αρχης κτισεως
2Pt 3:5 λανθανει γαρ αυτους τουτο θελοντας ὁτι ουρανοι ησαν εκπαλαι και γη εξ ὑδατος και δι᾽ ὑδατος συνεστωσα τω του θεου λογω
2Pt 3:6 δι᾽ ὡν ὁ τοτε κοσμος ὑδατι κατακλυσθεις απωλετο
2Pt 3:7 οἱ δε νυν ουρανοι και ἡ γη τω αυτω λογω τεθησαυρισμενοι εισιν πυρι τηρουμενοι εἱς ἡμεραν κρισεως και απωλειας των ασεβων ανθρωπων
2Pt 3:8 ἑν δε τουτο μη λανθανετω ὑμας αγαπητοι ὁτι μια ἡμερα παρα κυριω ὡς χιλια ετη και χιλια ετη ὡς ἡμερα μια
2Pt 3:9 ου βραδυνει κυριος της επαγγελιαν ὡς τινες βραδυτητα ἡγουνται αλλα μακροθυμει εις ὑμας μη βουλομενος τινας απολεσθαι αλλα παντας εἱς μετανοιαν χωρησαι
2Pt 3:10 ἡξει δε ἡμερα κυριου ὡς κλεπτης εν ἡ.. οἱ ουρανοι ῥοιζηδον παρελευσονται στοιχεια δε καυσουμενα λυθησεται και γη και τα εν αυτη εργα εὑρεθησεται
2Pt 3:11 τουτων οὑτως παντων λυομενων ποταπους δει ὑπαρχειν εν ἁγιαις αναστροφαις και ευσεβειαις
2Pt 3:12 προσδοκωντας και σπευδοντας την παρουσιαν της του θεου ἡμερας. δι᾽ ἡν ουρανοι πυρουμενοι λυθησονται και στοιχεια καυσουμενα τηκεται
2Pt 3:13 καινους δε ουρανους και γην καινην κατα το επαγγελμα αυτου προσδοκωμεν εν οἱς δικαιοσυνη κατοικει
2Pt 3:14 διο αγαπητοι ταυτα προσδοκωντες σπουδασατε ασπιλοι και αμωμητοι αυτω εὑρεθηναι εν ειρηνη
2Pt 3:15 και την του κυριου ἡμων μακροθυμιαν σωτηριαν ἡγεισθε καθως και ὁ αγαπητος ἡμων αδελφος παυλος κατα την δοθεισαν αυτω σοφιαν εγραψεν ὑμιν
2Pt 3:16 ὡς και εν πασαις επιστολαις λαλων εν αυταις περι τουτων εν αἱς εστιν δυσνοητα τινα ἁ οἱ αμαθεις και αστηρικτοι στρεβλουσιν ὡς και τας λοιπας γραφας προς την ιδιαν αυτων απωλειαν
2Pt 3:17 ὑμεις ουν αγαπητοι προγινωσκοντες φυλασσεσθε μη τη των αθεσμων πλανη συναπαχθεντες εκπεσητε του ιδιου στηριγμου
2Pt 3:18 αυξανετε δε εν χαριτι και γνωσει του κυριου ἡμων και σωτηρος ιησου χριστου αυτω ἡ δοξα και νυν και εις ἡμεραν αιωνος αμην
