Christ's Glory and the Prophetic Word

16 For we did not follow (A)cleverly devised (B)myths when we made known to you (C)the power and (D)coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but (E)we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, (F)“This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased,” 18 we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on (G)the holy mountain. 19 And (H)we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention (I)as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until (J)the day (K)dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. 21 For (L)no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God (M)as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
