The Apostles of Christ - 2 Peter 3

2 Peter 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you;  in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of  remembrance.

2 Peter 3:2 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:  

2 Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last  days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 

2 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 the creation. 

2 Peter 3:5 For this they willingly  are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of  old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:  

2 Peter 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed  with water, perished: 

2 Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth,  which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved  unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of  ungodly men. 

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this  one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand  years, and a thousand years as one day. 

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is  not slack concerning his promise, as some men count  slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that  any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.   

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

2 Peter 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be  dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all  holy conversation and godliness, 

2 Peter 3:12 Looking for and  hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the  heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements  shall melt with fervent heat? 

2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we,  according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new  earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 

2 Peter 3:14 Wherefore,  beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that  ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and  blameless. 

2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of  our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul  also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written  unto you; 

2 Peter 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in  them of these things; in which are some things hard to be  understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable  wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own  destruction. 

2 Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know  these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away  with the error of the wicked, fall from your own  steadfastness. 

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the  knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him  be glory both now and forever. Amen.   KJV
