2 Peter 3:1-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Coming of the Lord

Beloved friends, this is now the second letter I have written to you[a] in which I’ve attempted to stir you up and awaken you to a proper mind-set.[b] So never forget both the prophecies spoken by the holy prophets of old and the teaching[c] of our Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles.[d]

Above all, you must understand that in the last days mockers[e] will multiply, chasing after their evil desires.


  1. 2 Peter 3:1 This would indicate that Peter is writing to the same people as his first letter (Galatia, Cappadocia, and the Roman province of Asia).
  2. 2 Peter 3:1 Or “a pure mind” or “sincere intention.” The Aramaic can be translated “awaken your beautiful memories.”
  3. 2 Peter 3:2 Or “commandment.”
  4. 2 Peter 3:2 Peter places “your apostles” on the same level as the Old Testament prophets as to their trustworthiness and in setting the standard for living a life of purity for God.
  5. 2 Peter 3:3 Or “deceivers.”
