2 Peter 1:17-19Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
17 For He having received from God the Father the honor and glory of such a voice[a] having been carried[b]to Him by the Majestic Glory— “This is My Son, My Beloved, in Whom I was[c] well-pleased”—18 we ourselves also heard this voice having been carried out of heaven, being with Him on the holy mountain.
And We Have God’s Prophetic Word More Firm
19 And we have the prophetic[d] word as more-firm[e], to which you are doing well to be paying-attention as to a lamp shining in a dismal[f] place, until which time the day dawns and the morning-star rises in your hearts,
2 Peter 1:17That is, such a unique voice. Or, of an utterance such-as-this.
2 Peter 1:19That is, the words written by the prophets; in particular, about the Messiah.
2 Peter 1:19That is, more certain as to its meaning, because we were eyewitnesses of its fulfillment. Or, we have the more-firm prophetic word, the OT prophecies, an even stronger witness than our eyewitness account of the voice from heaven.
