(A)Grace and peace be multiplied to you in (B)the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His (C)divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true (D)knowledge of Him who (E)called us [a]by His own glory and [b]excellence. [c]For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent (F)promises, so that by them you may become (G)partakers of the divine nature, having (H)escaped the (I)corruption that is in (J)the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith (K)supply (L)moral [d]excellence, and in your moral excellence, (M)knowledge, and in your knowledge, (N)self-control, and in your self-control, (O)perseverance, and in your perseverance, (P)godliness, and in your godliness, (Q)brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor (R)unfruitful in the true (S)knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
