Fruitful Growth in the Faith

But also for this very reason, (A)giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue (B)knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control [a]perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and (C)to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither [b]barren (D)nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is (E)shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent (F)to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
