15 And count (A)the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as (B)our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you (C)according to the wisdom given him, 16 as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. (D)There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, (E)as they do the other Scriptures. 17 You therefore, beloved, (F)knowing this beforehand, (G)take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. 18 But (H)grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (I)To him be the glory both now and to the day of (J)eternity. Amen.
