1:3 How all things of his god-like virtue, that be into life and piety, be given to us, by the knowing of him, that called us for his own glory and virtue. According as his godly power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and to serve god withal, through the knowledge of him that hath called us by virtue and glory, According as his godly power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us unto glory and virtue. 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.
1:4 By whom he gave to us most and precious promises; that by these things ye shall be made fellows of God’s kind, fleeing the corruption of that covetousness, that is in the world. by the means whereof, are given unto us excellent and most great promises, that by the help of them ye should be partakers of the godly nature, in that ye fly the corruption of worldly lust. Whereby most great, and precious promises are given unto us, that by them ye should be partakers of the godly nature, in that ye flee the corruption, which is in the world through lust.  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises, that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
1:5 And bring ye in all busyness, and minister in your faith virtue, soothly in virtue science; And hereunto give all diligence: in your faith minister virtue, and in virtue knowledge, Therefore give even all diligence thereunto: join moreover virtue with your faith: and with virtue, knowledge: And besides this, giving all diligence, add to your faith, virtue; and to virtue, knowledge;
1:6 in science soothly abstinence, in abstinence patience, in patience piety; and in knowledge temperancy, and in temperancy patience, in patience godliness, And with knowledge, temperance: and with temperance, patience: and with patience, godliness: And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness;
1:7 in piety, love of brotherhood, and in love of brotherhood charity. in godliness brotherly kindness, in brotherly kindness love. And with godliness, brotherly kindness: and with brotherly kindness, love. And to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, charity.
1:8 For if these be with you, and overcome, they shall not make you void, nor without fruit, in the knowing of our Lord Jesus Christ. For if these things be among you, and are plenteous they will make you that ye neither shall be idle nor unfruitful unto the knowledge of our lord Jesus Christ. For if these things be among you, and abound, they will make you that ye neither shall be idle, nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 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.
1:9 But to whom these be not ready, he is blind, and gropeth with his hand, and forgetteth the purging of his old trespasses. He that lacketh these things is blind and gropeth for the way with his hand, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. For he that hath not these things, is blind, & cannot see far off, & hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. But he that lacketh these things, is blind, and cannot see far off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
1:10 Wherefore, brethren, more busy ye, that by good works ye make your calling and choosing certain; soothly ye doing these things, shall not sin any time. Wherefore brethren give the more diligence for to make your calling and election sure. For if ye do such things ye shall never err. Wherefore, brethren, give rather diligence to make your calling & election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall. Wherefore, the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.
1:11 For thus the entering into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, shall be ministered to you plenteously. Yea and by this means an entering in shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our lord and saviour Jesus Christ. For by this means an entering shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ. For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly, into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
1:12 For which thing I shall begin to admonish you evermore of these things; and I will that ye be knowing, and confirmed in this present truth. Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of such things, though that ye know them yourselves and be also stablished in the present truth. Wherefore, I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though that ye have knowledge, and be stablished in the present truth. Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be stablished in the present truth.
1:13 Forsooth I deem just, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to raise you in admonishing; Notwithstanding I think it meet (as long as I am in this tabernacle) to stir you up by putting you in remembrance, For I think it meet as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up, by putting you in remembrance:
1:14 and I am certain, for the putting off of my tabernacle is swift, by this that our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed to me. forasmuch as I am sure how that the time is at hand that I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. Seeing I know that the time is at hand that I must lay down this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. Knowing that shortly I must put off this my Tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
1:15 But I shall give busyness, that oft after my death ye have mind of these things. I will enforce therefore, that on every side ye might have wherewith to stir up the remembrance of these things after my departing. I will endeavour therefore always, that ye also may be able to have remembrance of these things after my departing. Moreover, I will endeavour, that ye may be able after my decease, to have these things always in remembrance.
1:16 For we not following unwise tales, have made known to you the virtue and prescience of our Lord Jesus Christ; but made beholders of his greatness. For we followed not deceivable fables when we opened unto you the power, and coming of our lord Jesus Christ: but with our eyes we saw his majesty. For we followed not deceivable fables when we opened unto you the power, and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but with our eyes we saw his majesty: 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.
1:17 For he took of God the Father honour and glory, by such manner voice slid down to him from the great glory, This is my loved Son, in whom I have pleased to me; hear ye him. Even then verily when he received of god the father honor and glory, and when there came such a voice to him from excellent glory. This is my dear beloved son, in whom I have delight, For he received of 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 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.
1:18 And we heard this voice brought from heaven, when we were with him in the holy hill. this voice we heard when it came from heaven, being with him in the holy mount. And this voice we heard when it came from heaven, being with him in the holy mount. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
1:19 And we have a firmer word of prophecy, to which ye giving attention do well, as to a lantern that giveth light in a dark place, till the day begin to give light, and the day star spring in your hearts. We have also a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto if ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, ye do well, until the day dawn and the day star arise in your hearts. We have also a most sure word of the Prophets, to the which 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. 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:
1:20 First understanding this thing, that each prophecy of scripture is not made by proper, interpretation; So that ye first know this, that no prophecy in the scripture hath any private interpretation. So that ye first know this, that no prophecy in the Scripture is of any private motion. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private Interpretation:
1:21 for prophecy was not brought any time by man’s will, but the holy men of God inspired with the Holy Ghost spake. For the scripture came never by the will of man: but holy men of god spake as they were moved by the holy ghost. 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 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.
