2 Peter 1:2-10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
2 Grace be with you, and peace be multiplied in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who has called us by virtue and glory, 4 by the means whereof are given to us excellent and most great promises, so that by the help of them you may be partakers of the divine nature, in that you flee the corruption of worldly lust.
5 And give all diligence to this. To your faith add virtue, and to virtue knowledge, 6 and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, to patience godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things be among you and abound, they will make you so that you will neither be idle nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he who lacks these things is blind, and gropes for the way with his hands, and has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10 Therefore, brethren, give the more diligence to make your calling and election sure. For if you do such things, you shall never err.
