The Knowledge of God - 2 Peter 1

2 Peter 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.

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

2 Peter 1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things  that pertain unto life and godliness, through the  knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  

2 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and  precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of  the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in  the world through lust. 

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

2 Peter 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance  patience; and to patience godliness; 

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

2 Peter 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. 

2 Peter 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. 

2 Peter 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: 

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

2 Peter 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you  always in remembrance of these things, though ye know  them, and be established in the present truth. 

2 Peter 1:13 Yea, I  think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you  up by putting you in remembrance; 

2 Peter 1:14 Knowing that  shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord  Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 

2 Peter 1:15 Moreover I will  endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have  these things always in remembrance. 

2 Peter 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. 

2 Peter 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. 

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

2 Peter 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: 

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

2 Peter 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.   KJV
