Youngs Literal Translation
||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:
||Simeon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who did obtain a like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ:
||Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
||Grace to you, and peace be multiplied in the acknowledgement of God and of Jesus our Lord!
||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:
||As all things to us His divine power (the things pertaining unto life and piety) hath given, through the acknowledgement of him who did call us through glory and worthiness,
||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.
||through which to us the most great and precious promises have been given, that through these ye may become partakers of a divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world in desires.
||And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
||And this same also -- all diligence having brought in besides, superadd in your faith the worthiness, and in the worthiness the knowledge,
||And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
||and in the knowledge the temperance, and in the temperance the endurance, and in the endurance the piety,
||And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
||and in the piety the brotherly kindness, and in the brotherly kindness the love;
||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.
||for these things being to you and abounding, do make `you' neither inert nor unfruitful in regard to the acknowledging of our Lord Jesus Christ,
||But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
||for he with whom these things are not present is blind, dim-sighted, having become forgetful of the cleansing of his old sins;
||Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
||wherefore, the rather, brethren, be diligent to make stedfast your calling and choice, for these things doing, ye may never stumble,
||For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
||for so, richly shall be superadded to you the entrance into the age-during reign of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
||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.
||Wherefore, I will not be careless always to remind you concerning these things, though, having known them, and having been established in the present truth,
||Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
||and I think right, so long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up in reminding `you',
||Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
||having known that soon is the laying aside of my tabernacle, even as also our Lord Jesus Christ did shew to me,
||Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
||and I will be diligent that also at every time ye have, after my outgoing, power to make to yourselves the remembrance of these things.
||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.
||For, skilfully devised fables not having followed out, we did make known to you the power and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, but eye-witnesses having become of his majesty --
||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.
||for having received from God the Father honour and glory, such a voice being borne to him by the excellent glory: `This is My Son -- the beloved, in whom I was well pleased;'
||And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
||and this voice we -- we did hear, out of heaven borne, being with him in the holy mount.
||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:
||And we have more firm the prophetic word, to which we do well giving heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, till day may dawn, and a morning star may arise -- in your hearts;
||Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
||this first knowing, that no prophecy of the Writing doth come of private exposition,
||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.
||for not by will of man did ever prophecy come, but by the Holy Spirit borne on holy men of God spake.
