  1. 2 Peter 3:10 Some manuscripts be burned up

18 Whoever flees(A) at the sound of terror
    will fall into a pit;(B)
whoever climbs out of the pit
    will be caught in a snare.(C)

The floodgates of the heavens(D) are opened,
    the foundations of the earth shake.(E)
19 The earth is broken up,(F)
    the earth is split asunder,(G)
    the earth is violently shaken.
20 The earth reels like a drunkard,(H)
    it sways like a hut(I) in the wind;
so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion(J)
    that it falls(K)—never to rise again.(L)

21 In that day(M) the Lord will punish(N)
    the powers(O) in the heavens above
    and the kings(P) on the earth below.
