[a]For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent (A)promises, so that by them you may become (B)partakers of the divine nature, having (C)escaped the (D)corruption that is in (E)the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith (F)supply (G)moral [b]excellence, and in your moral excellence, (H)knowledge, and in your knowledge, (I)self-control, and in your self-control, (J)perseverance, and in your perseverance, (K)godliness, and in your godliness, (L)brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor (M)unfruitful in the true (N)knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these qualities is (O)blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his (P)purification from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His (Q)calling and (R)choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never (S)stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into (T)the eternal kingdom of our (U)Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be (V)abundantly (W)supplied to you.
